“Attentione”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

We love this place but had a recent bad experience. With the growth in tourism and great places to go we hope WB keeps up. The owners can not afford to sit playing cards while Rome burns. Staff are easily confused and very slow. VERY slow. Do they know how to smile? One lady NOT the owner but a friend or relation was blissfully rude. As a lover of Italians this was a surprise.
This is the service industry you are NOT rude to customers.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

Following several visits to the restaurant in the past, we have decided to spend five nights in one of the newly built bungalows at WB. Massimo (the owner) created a wonderful room, very functional, pretty with outstanding attention to details. We had the best stay ever, Luigina's wonderful Italian food was as delicious and as authentic as ever! Eating well and sleeping better along the best tract of beach of Sri Lanka is definitely a treat! Strongly recommend it!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
A sensational 2 room boutique hotel and restaurant in the south Gold Coast of Sri Lanka. WB is a private house but also the essential location for food and sun-seekers; it’s a secluded and stylish retreat just minutes from Galle where you can relax by the sea and indulge in delicious Italian cuisine accompanied by a good choice of wines. Chill out in tropical lounging pavilions, go for a dip in the beautiful coral lagoon and dry off on sun drenched loungers whilst enjoying the beautiful panorama of the ocean. The Italian owner’s classic architectural styling has been cleverly combined with monochrome interiors and luxurious furnishings that invite you to do no more than relax and imbibe. Indulge in a daily-changing menu that includes homemade choice of sauce for pastas, freshly baked "ciabatta" bread and plenty of fresh seafood. Items such as Italian antipasti and real Extra Virgin Olive Oil are specially imported from Italy for authenticity. Evening menus can always be pre-arranged whilst our scenic location makes WB the ideal place to host private parties that can be tailor-made to meet your individual desires and needs. You are welcome and as the coral lagoon offers safe and secluded swimming year-round it is a comfortably reassuring choice. ... more   less
