“Just Average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2013

The Spaghetti House was OK, but not remarkable. We choose it as it was a short walk from our resort. Two of us had the steak, but it was quite chewy, but my husband enjoyed his ravioli, and a friend had the spaghetti which tasted fine. The staff were friendly but we found the place lacked atmosphere.

“Pretty good Italian in Rarotonga”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2013

The Spaghetti House was just OK. Our son picked this as our restaurant of the evening. He enjoyed his spaghetti and meatballs. The pasta with seafood was chock full of seafood. I had the fish of the day (parrot fish). Meals were fine, but we found it to be a bit pricey for what we received. Not much of a venue - just an Italian restaurant off the street (not near the beach).

“Enjoyable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2013

Nothing to rave about but certainly pleasant. The pizzas were really good though. The chicken pasta needed some seasoning and wasn't overly flavoursome but overall it was enjoyable and handy to the edgewater.

“Localised "Italian"”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2013

Quite a nice break from the Edgewater Hotel cuisine. I love Italian food and the restaurant is on the main road at the end of the drive for the resort!
I tried a local beer, but one would be my limit, sorry but it is just not to my taste. We had a Bruschetta, which they did on a small pizza base, cut into 8 slices with about 4 grams of chopped tomato on each slice. Very cheap way make it, I would rather pay more and have it done properly with sliced olives and a good olive oil drizzle.
I had crab and prawn "ravioli" very tasty but not a large serve! 4 pieces only in the dish. My wife had pork and spinach cannelloni and it was a very large serve, which she enjoyed.

“Nice food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2013

We stayed at the Edgewater so this was a nice close place for us to eat. It was very busy when we were there so we were glad we booked. Our food came out very quickly and was hot and fresh. We enjoyed both our meals. They have a paper table cloth & cup of crayons on the table so it was fun drawing on that while we waited for our food. The staff, while busy, were friendly and polite.
