“Excellent Italian”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

Lovely restaurant in Simpson Bay. we decided to try on the recommendation of a friend and we were not disappointed. The shrimp cocktail was great with a wonder red sauce and melon and prosciutto was light and refreshing. I had the beef ravioli and the pasta is home made. Very good and I wasn't stuffed when I left, just happily full. Husband had the lasagna which he adored but there was a spice in it that I found just so so (but that was just me everyone else at the table loved it). Others had the baby clams and pasta and said it was one of their favorite meals of the week. Wonderful service and we were made to feel very welcome. Love this restaurant and will certainly come back next year!

“Fantastic home cooked”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013 via mobile

Tonight was our second time here. Homemade tagliatelle bolognese was delicious and price was fantastic. Amazing panna cotta for dessert with a cappuccino. Definitely worth checking it out. Other diners mentioned it was their second and third time there....

The best Italian food and homemade pasta ever! Great service, easy happy service, and they were willing to cater to vegetarians! I hope we have the opportunity to return.

“Fresh handmade pasta, nuff said”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

Fairly new restaurant on Welfare Rd across the road from Toppers. Italian cuisine. There are a number of Italian restaurants on St Maarten and to survive it has to be very good. This one is better than very good. I had the spinach and ricotta ravioli as did my wife. They were clearly freshly hand made and tasted delicious. The only ravioli that tasted this good were ones made by my grandmother 40 years ago. The couple with us had lasagna and stuffed chicken breast. They were both very happy with their meal. We had ordered a mixed salad and a Caesar salad - both were very good. No frozen drinks - wine or beer. Pasta dishes were $15 - 20 and any dishes with meat were $ 25 - 35. Reasonable prices for the island.

“Real Italian Food in St Maarten”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

My husband and I had dinner in this restaurant. The food was great. The freshly made pasta was cooked to perfection (not over or undercooked). We really enjoyed our meal. This is a new restaurant which opened 2 months ago.

The service was also great. The restaurant is owned by Pia and Antonio. Pia was so gracious, attentive and anxious to please.

It was overall a great experience and we plan to return for another dinner.
