Food is good but the service is shocking. The attitude of our waiter put us off our experience. Not worth returning or the first visit for that matter.

Lovely colourful restaurant, friendly staff and excellent authentic italian food! Just remember to make a reservation in advance as the restaurant is always so full!

It was enough to eat a single spaghetto to understand it was going to be a wonderful food experience. Pasta deeply absorbed the fish sauce and was cooked at perfect point. You can easily notice they only use high quality products and even the quality of pasta itself it was a very good one! The place look very nice and... More

We have been living in Trou aux Biches for one year, and could never just walk in this restaurant. You have to book several hours or maybe a day in advance. But it's worth it. Nice Italian flavors accompanied by fine wine, and spot on service. In comparison to other equally good restaurants in the area, it's the most pricey... More

Let me start by saying I never ever complain. No I mean it - have a look at my posts on trip advisor. Not a a single complaint ever! But I had dinner here tonight with my family of six. The service was fine. One of the owners served us originally and the way she explained the menu was brilliant.... More

Dear Simon L, first of all let me say that I'm sorry for your disappointment, but please give me the chance to explain better what happened last night. The ravioli you ordered are made with fresh fish and prawns, once they are prepared we put them in a blast chiller (I'm not sure this is the right name in english),... More

Filet de Boeuf with Gorgonzola very special and good taste. Spaghetti frutti di mare only if you have enough time to open all the little shells. The owners are very friendly. Prices are fitting to the island.

On the side of the busy coastal road, it was a noisy meal. The restaurant staff were running all over the place and things seemed out of control. No snacks or even bread was served before the first course arrived. All this did not augur well for our first experience of this restaurant. But when the food arrived, things were... More

We went to this restaurant 2 times and it was perfect. You can get a main course for 350 rupees. If i ever come back to Mauritius i will go back!

After a really miserable experience with the owner some time ago I decided to give it a chance again - I was just curious how the food would be and after a long time on the island i was really craving good Italian food. Well, sorry to say but it was a real disappointment. The food was ok but surely... More

This place was recommended to us by the reception of our hotel Mon Choisy Beach Resort. It is a great little family owned Italian restaurant. Food was excellent and the service great. We loved the fresh tuna with the black pasta. Definitely recommended
