Just got back from "island time" on Sunday ( 4/6/2014) This was our third night on island (had ate at Marriott other two nights) My friends and my husband and I are from New Jersey. We met the owner, Idle, and totally enjoyed talking to her. She was so warm and inviting. She went over the menu and suggested several... More

OK, we visit lots of islands and are well aware of island time! But this particular restaurant wins the reward for the poorest service ever. Our group arrived on time (had a reservation). We were there 3.5 hours! We had to ask for a 2nd drink. They could have made much more money by serving drinks during their long wait... More

While service was a bit slow (island time!), the food was excellent and the portions were substantial. The lasagna was great, and all of the dishes were worth the wait. Make reservations just in case.

We walked to this restaurant from our hotel in St Kitts and what a disappointment!! We called first for a reservation and when we got there we were told to sit wherever we want............some reservation! There is no atmosphere whatever, lit up like an operating room! The owner/manager sits at a desk right out in the open in the restaurant... More

We knew we would eat dinner at a restaurant on the strip near the Marriott but hadn't decided which one. The menu posted outside Ciao looked interesting so we decided to go in. From the moment we stepped inside, we were pleased with out decision. Our waitress, Marcella, was very friendly and attentive. The owner came to our table to... More

We ate here twice while vacationing in St Kitts. The food is very authentic. The lobster ravioli was to die for. I had it both times I went, done different ways and each time it was excellent. Excellent value as well. The owner is great and makes sure that her guests enjoy themselves. We received complimentary limoncello, which was super... More

Had a very nice dinner this evening. Everything was fresh and tasty. You can't leave without a hug from the owner. A warm and welcoming restaurant with a great and attentive staff.

Four of my family of six walked here from the Marriott, having read the positive reviews on TA. The other two of our teenagers said they were too tired to go out to dinner. We arrived without a reservation, but the wife of the husband/wife team of owners said she would set up a table for us in a few... More
