Nice restaurant on Main Street in Black River. Make reservations as insides fills up fast. Parking is off street 250m before restaurant. Beer and wine available was nice in this sleepy part of Mauritius. Pizza was good, as was the garlic bread with pesto/cheese topic....Prices are reasonable. Worth a tryMore

Totally disappointed far away from a pizza, it's more like a tarte (very thin and hard) - even frozen pizza from the supermarket have more "substance" also the Spaghetti carbonara wasn't much

If you have ever been to Italy don’t expect anything like you have experienced before! The pizza bases are more like a cheese biscuit, thin and hard. Every pizza comes with a strange green chilli/garlic sauce. The toppings are OK. But the warmth of the...welcome is definitely cool.More

We ate there twice in a week, staying at the Veranda Tamarin a short walk away. Food good, and maybe the best pizza in Mauritius, but not the best pizzas I've ever had. I 'd go ther again tjhough. Food much better than the hotel...and a much better atmosphereMore

The reviews I saw recommended this place as "the best pizza in Mauritius", do we decided to try it... HUGE disappointment... Their "Italiana" pizza is supposed to come with cheese, tomatoes and olives, so we ordered it along with their margarita pizza... Looking forward to...a delicious pizza with olives imagine our disappointment to find literally TWO olives on the whole pizza! The margarita wasn't any better as it was almost burnt and rubbery.... To make matters worse the dough was elastic! This was the first time that I ate a pizza just because I was hungry and ended tossing it out and eating a store bought frozen pizza which actually tasted better! Definitely would not recommend this place...More

The pizzas are not the usual ones served at Pizza Hut, Domino's, El Mondo etc outlets. The cosa nostra pizza is the real one! The pizza has an impeccable thin base and made in a wood fired oven. I was literally like 'wow' at each...bite of my pizza. The pasta is fresh and hand made. Everything seems fresh- veggies on pizza, the chilli and the pasta. Also, the owner of the restaurant is a smiling, friendly and nice gentleman and that is welcoming!More

A fantastic restaurant that you could easily pass by if you don’t know it’s there a real gem. It’s on the road on the corner opposite the salt fields Best pizzas I have had in Mauritius, with a beautiful thin crust and the pasta is...good too. Courtyard seating but with a lovely atmosphere We have been here several times and the service was much quicker than last year so all credit to the staff, well done keep it up.More

The front area is non smoking and the 'garden area' is a smoking area. However the garden area is a 30cm away area and is mostly covered.this retains the cigarette Smell and Smoke. People smoking in the 'garden area' unfortunately impact on non smoking people...in the non smoking room. The smell ruins the customer experience.Inhaling cigarette smoke, also known as passive smoking, can cause cancer and respiratory and cardiovascular disease. Indoor smoking is banned at many public places and worksites; at others, smoking areas have been moved outdoors. I noticed that the restaurant adopted a environment friendly own bottled water. Pls go all the way. If the food quality is good customer will follow.More

We were hungry for pizza! Not just you regular pizza from Pizza Hut or Domino's or the likes, but pizza cooked in a wood-fired oven that would be something special. We passed by the day before and decided to return for a meal. We had...pizza and ravioli and both were very good. It was open air, so a little warm, but not bad for the evening meal.More

It is too far to walk you will need a cab - probably a 10 min drive but well worth it!
