Excited to visit this restaurant and was delighted to be sat outside near the pool. The service is excellent and friendly. Although the water menu rather embarrassing I think. Having opted for the 7 course tasting menu. We found it odd that we had not seen a wine menu although we were two courses in. We we eventually excellently guided... More

This restaurant is located inside the Hotel Byron in a fine ambience near the swimming pool. The service is attentive and the chef offers dishes of Napolitan tradition but with some innovative combination of ingredients such as spaghetti with yellow tomatoes, raw prawns and pork rinds. The grilled seabass was excellent. Amuse-bouche and desserts to be improved.

Having been seated by a swimming pool and presented with a rather pretentious water menu which made us giggle we were still excited about the meal ahead. Unfortunately, while the service was excellent and the wine delicious our pasta tasting meny was just bland. My husband and I have spent a lot of time in Italy and even putting aside... More

We had amazing dinner at La Magnolia. Two from our table had 8 course tasting menu and 2 had a la carte. The staff, who were amazing throughout the dinner, managed to spread out the dishes so that those who ate from a la carte would not have to stay without food while the others were having 8 courses. All... More

This "al fresco" restaurant is located near the pool of the hotel Byron. We had lunch here four times and dinner twice. Every time it was a joy to taste a simple but excellent Italian cuisine serving fresh and top ingredients. Very extensive wine list and excellent advise from the sommelier. Great service. What a joy to eat here.

Impressed from the start, when we were offered a WATER list, with descriptions and suggestions of food pairing. The food was great starting with the couvert, and the chef also surprised us with some complementary dishes and a glass of champagne. Lovely location, very romantic setting on the pool deck. Waiters and maitre d were attentive!

Luncheon for 4 people poolside. Exceptionally friendly and attentive staff, crisp linens, fresh seafood throughout the menu, extensive and not overpriced wine list for the area. Really an exceptional experience from start to finish. However keep in mind this was the end of the season. In the peak summer months it may be difficult to obtain reservations as a fairly... More

Had dinner here four times because we stayed at the Byron hotel of which it is the restaurant. Very pleasant and elegant setting near the swimming pool. Excellent service, extensive wine list, fine cuisine worth the Michelin star. Menu changing every day. Italian cooking at it's best.
