This is our favorite restaurant on St. Martin, which is high praise on this island of gourmet cuisine. Our latest visit was no disappointment. The buffalo mozzarella appetizer with toast and a spread were mouth-watering. The osso buco was the best I've ever tasted and was wrapped in zucchini, which was a nice touch. The deserts and the Lemoncello digestif... More

We came here for dinner and got pizza. Of the three places we tried for pizza (Le Piment & Yellow Sub being the other two), we liked this place the most for pizza--and we say this despite the mishap described later. The crust was not tough for us as described in other reviews--we thought it was fine, "average" thickness. My... More

We had a pizza and some wine here. We came in because of the friendly hostess from Peru and the service was really great! The pizzas however lacked some taste and had a thick crust, when we prefer a thin crust. The wine was great! If we cannot find better food in the village we will come here again just... More

Ate there twice this trip in spite of the blonde waitress/greeter. Food was very good but generally she was a disappointment--no skills on an island that is known for good service. Since others have mentioned it here, the blonde needs to find another job somewhere else. Our friends will not return. I will if some of the staff changes. The... More

My husband and I tried Little Italie when we decided to take a break from French food. The woman working to draw people into the restaurant was pretty aggressive but seemed friendly enough. As soon as we ordered our wine we were informed the oven broke so there was no pizza available. I wasn't too fussed as I didn't plan... More

Seeing this little dog peeing in the gravel just about sent us into hysterics at our slap stick comedy evening that we sadly chose to eat here one evening. The waitress is so eager to get the punters as they view the menu she will actually break off from talking to you or taking your order to get another hapless... More

Generally I'd give two stars if the food was pretty good, and it was pretty good, but the service was so aggressively bad I couldn't do it. Don't go here. We have been going to Orient for years, and we understand that French service is not doting, but this was well beneath that. The waitress/hostess was pleasant in a phony... More

The pizza choices are many and the crust is delicious. Would prefer the meat to be cut in smaller pieces. The pasta ravioli special with pesto was very good.
