“Best Italian ANYWHERE!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013 via mobile

They have perfected what few have. Hand made homemade pasta, and breads. Outstanding wine selection beautifully displayed. You do not want to miss out.

“Our favorite on the island!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

Don't miss this one. Authentic Italian cuisine with a great menu, and world class wine selections. Pasta and everything else made in house. A beautiful, modern, open space with indoor and outdoor dining. We try to eat here 2-3 times every trip!

“First time at the new location!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

The new location is beautiful! We sat outside, despite the major lack of wind during the week, we did have a comfortable breeze while we dined.

We were dying to have the pizza so we shared one as an appetizer. Lola, as always, recommended a wonderful Barbera Frizzante to go with it! For entrees, try the Tagliatelle al Funghi - it rivals some of the best I've had even in Italy! Unbelievably good! I'd love to know where she gets her mushrooms from!!! The catch of day Livornese style is a great choice as well. Again, Lola did not steer us wrong with the wine choice!

This place is definitely one of the reasons we've been back to Bonaire 6 times (right behind the diving of course)!

“A little South Beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

We arrived as a large party of 12 the service was great. I highly recommend the Gnocchi in a white cream sauce. If you're in the mood for a cheesy decadent pasta it was amazing. A very South Beach ambiance on the island of Bonaire.

“Service and management needs an overhaul”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

Yesterday we. We're lost looking for another restaurant and we pulled up in front of carpacchio. The chef wasvgrestband helpedvusbfind our destination. We promised we would return. And we did tonight. We were seated easily inside without reservations. Irritations immediately. There were two servers working. Both helped on our table. Not ONCE did either one make eye contact with us. Things were slapped down on the table. We were not offered the option of ordering a drink prior to the entree. We ordered a bottle of wine at the same time as our entrees. Wine came just a little ahead of entrees. Weak point. I'm a vegan and often order a veggie pizza sans cheese. Here that order was ok except the tomatoe sauce was lame. Veggies were basic. My friend ordered the pasta carbonara. He thought the pasta was mediocre, bacon and seasonings of the sauce was good.

My biggest irritation however was a woman who I presume to be the owner or manager. She stood right next to our table engaging in a loud one sided conversation with another table. She was talking loudly. The acoustics echo sound so while she was making nice with a table of 5 the sound and volume of her voice was beyond irritating. When her path crossed with either of the two servers I could feel really negative energy. No one who worked there smiles. Come on. Look where we are!! Be happy. The woman was also interfering with the servers relationship with the customers. She was buzzing around taking orders, butting I. Everywhere. Interestingly she stopped by our table for 2 seconds of hope you enjoyed. But that's more than we got from the servers.

Sorry! We were looking forward to our dinner but carpacchio really disappointed.
