Fantastic Italian food in a truly different location. The service is family style, the decor is gorgeous and comfortable. Tasty food prepared in a wood burning oven.

If, like us, you were a regular visitor to Gianluca's inside Timothy Oulton you will be pleased to know that following his relocation nothing has changed but the venue. We tracked him down to his new "cafe" just past the Baobab Tower in Warrens. It's still a work in progress but once finished should be a great little place to... More

Yesterday we had to wait for 3 hours to see our order served. On the Menu it was said that the steak would come with a salad and mash potatoes. The mash potatoes were replaced with a single slice of bread. I ordered one pizza margarithe, when it finally arrived it was burned. I Returned it and waited for another... More

Went for lunch. Three of us. 12:30. Menus weren't "ready" for the day. Then when she listed what we could have off of it, we ordered. We then found out there was no tomatoes for the brushetta - one of the appetizers, and they wanted to know if we could have pizza sauce and parmasean. We cancelled the brusheta. we... More

Table went from 6 to 14 to 18 in 24 hours...not a problem for Gianluca who fed all of us without seemingly breaking a sweat...oh and there was a table of 24 behind us! Best place on the island for Friday nights with big groups...oh and there is a wine shop open late with incredible stock...thank you Trident Wines.

Gianluca and his team serve up authentic Italian food in unique setting in a high end furniture/design store. Add a glass or bottle of wine from The Wine Cave - one of the best retail wine shops on the island and enjoy a leisurely lunch. Everything is made from scratch to be prepared to wait while the food is perfectly... More

The food is good & we have frequent the place until recently. Long wait (over an hour) for food. After all that wait, our food was given to the next table despite us coming 1/2 hour prior. Coincidentally, the dish was sold out thereafter. The waitress did inform her chef that we were 1st. Nevertheless, it seemed the chef decided... More

I ordered a medium rare steak that arrived very very well done. Tasted horrible and after asking the general manager for a discount he said no in the ruddiest way possible! I will not be going back

The perfect place to have lunch, authentic Sicilian cuisine in a Timothy Oulton unique atmosphere. The food is simple fresh tasty, the wine selection is great as you can choose it from the wine store adjoining the restaurant. You need to try also the Friday pizza night, and now Gian luca has just started the Saturday BBQ and pasta night.the... More
