Fantastic food. We had both pizza and pasta and it was yummy! Customer service could be improved but they were pleasant and helpful.

Arrived today on holiday and experienced the worst customer service ever. We've travelled the world with our family and this place takes the cake. I've never ever come across someone so rude and unhelpful. He told our kids to hurry up and pick what they want! There was no-one else in the restaurant so don't know what his problem was... More

While up for a wedding we frequently had take out as well as dined in. It has good pizza at reasonable prices, the pasta calabrese is very good but I found the lasagne to be a little disappointing. The garlic pizza is also nice. The location is close to the resort, service is good, range is good, and food is... More

Best local Pizza. Not as cheap as fast food pizza, but a very good feed. Try the Gamberi if you like prawns.. Worth the visit!

Great taste, great service and great value for money. My other favourite dish on the menu is the Grilled Seafood Salad. The staff are friendly and the service was excellent. I would definitely recommend A Taste of Italy to my friends and family.

We placed our order for two take away pizzas and one pasta at approximately 6:54pm. The girl who took our order, who was lovely, told us it should be about a 10-15 minute wait so we sat down in the seating area and waited. After about 20 minutes of waiting I walked up to the counter and asked if our... More
