Tasty Pizza with god view

Early Pizza and beer dinner with lovely view over the water. Restaurant was very quiet and service was good. The vegetarian Pizza had a crispy base and was very tasty.

Wouldn't call this an Italian restaurant. What a pity; such a nice place, great view, wonderful location. The food is just not up to mark for the price they ask. Service could improve a lot in all those little things that in themselves don't mean a great lot, but as soon as you start to notice them it irritates. Come... More

Took over 40 minutes to get a simple sandwich and chips which tasted like dirt. They carry one drink at a time to the table and each drinks takes 15 minutes to arrive. Felt like not paying the bill. To top it off we were heckled by prostitutes trying to simply get lunch. On the other hand, the view is... More

We had a pizza and pasta and both dishes tasted good, but we were disappointed that they couldn't serve both dishes at the same time. My pizza was cold when the pasta finally arrived. Pasta was also nothing special. The view over the sea is nice, but you're still sitting on cheap plastic chairs.

We've been in Cebu 2 weeks and our meal here was truly the best by far!!! Real cheese! We're not even going to eat any other place. I've been so hungry for decent food, loosing weight like crazy. We had pizza and pasta and ice cream. Everything was excellent! Pricy for Philipines but cheap compared to Western Countries. So happy... More

I had a late lunch at Marina Cucina and the place was deserted. It was a nice view and very quiet. I wouldn't have minded the high price of the food, had it been of commensurate qualtiy. I had a tenderloin that was anything but tender...chewy like an old shoe, only mixed vegetables which were nearly frozen and fries.... Certainly... More
