“Great food, location, service and memories!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2014 via mobile

We followed the signs (rare in Antigua!) and the Italian flag ;-) and found our way to this charming restaurant right on the water. We enjoyed the great drinks (my favourite piña colada of the trip), and the thin crust pizza was a great hit. I splurged on the lobster - a feisty live one that splashed the seat cushions on his way to the kitchen! Luckily we saved room for dessert which was decadently delicious. Diego stopped by to chat, which turned out to be another highlight of the evening.
In fact, we enjoyed our experience so much that, when we had trouble finding a restaurant open at 5:30 pm (beach places close for dinner??!) we went back to see Diego for more pizza, lobster pasta, fabulous beef (Canadian eh!) and desserts.
We will no doubt make a return visit on our next Antigua trip.
Thanks to Diego and his attentive staff for great food and memories! Ciao!

“Lovely location but food average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2014

Located on Antigua slipway, this in a great location but for us that wasn't enough to make up for average food. There was nothing bad about the food we had but there was nothing to make it any different from your average, and usually cheaper, Italian restaurant.

“Amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2014

We had one night in Antigua on our way home and wanted a really nice dinner. We picked the perfect place. The food and service was amazing. The owner was really friendly, visiting each table, getting to know who his patrons were. I had the pear/ricotta stuffed ravioli with sage butter - my mouth was in heaven!! The atmosphere right on the waterfront is lovely. The only complaint I would mention is the smokers who went to the walkway to smoke - since the wind blows in from the water, you had the constant smell of cigarette smoke when anyone was smoking.
