Yes, I have favorably reviewed this restaurant in the past. Tonight it was an utter disaster. First booking a reservation from the US required 50$ pp hold for 5 in our family. I refused to do this and the night we intended to go I...More

I would never get Chinese food in England, Indian food in Berlin, so I never got Italian food in the Carribbean. Call me a purist, but I like to eat "local" or "inventive".Due to various circumstances, we found ourselves on Sandy Ground and not able...More

We were told about Abbi and his wonderful Italian restaurant by another guest at our hotel. We had six people in our party so we got to taste a lot of the dishes. They were all delicious and surprisingly light. We will be back!

The food was amazing! I had the "crayfish", being from Louisiana I expected "crawfish" but was very pleasantly surprised. They were seasoned perfectly & very filling. I wish we had discovered this place earlier in our trip.
