“Can't beat the view...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

We dined here with another couple and had a lovely dinner. Table was right next to the sand and we enjoyed the view, as well as enjoyed watching a sand crab skirt around the restaurant floor. It was rather uncrowded, but the food was fine. Its more a view kind of place than a culinary experience.

“lovely setting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

We love dining on the water- so we chose this restaurant after we had already eaten plenty of Caribbean food.
Needing a change of pace- Il Tempio was very good. I had chicken cutlet with olive oil pasta- could have had more sauce, but good.
My husband had homemade sausage with potatoes and veggies.
Small menu, but good.

“Stay away!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

It has nothing to do with Italian cuisine. Pasta was overcooked, fish were average, coffee was Nestle...

Dear costumer, thanks for your review. Isn't the nicest one or the more specific one. When you came to dine you were very sceptical about our restaurant. We have tried to accomodate you as much as we could. Probably we weren't good enough for your standards. Our chef is truly italian and he came to talk to you at the table. Unfortunately you never complain with Alessandro Acquaro (our chef) about the pasta. You were complaining about the amount of lobster in your dish, and we told you that was a lobster tail. When you asked to our waitress about the dessert you told her:" I give you a last chance!!!". You found the chocolate souffle fantastic but, unfortunately, you didn't write it on the review. You also ask for the best coffee, and Alessandro came back with Nespresso. Nespresso is one the best coffee that you can get in Italy at the moment and you said to Alessandro: " Nespresso is Nestle!!!" Alessandro explained to you that you could have Lavazza and another kind of coffee and so you did. You had Lavazza, that in Italy, and not in Poland, isn't the best. We also took off from your bill the lobster linguine, even if you ate it ALL. We are very sorry if we couldn't make your night as u expected, but probably will be best for you read this respond to have a better memory about that night!!!
