Slightly strange environment as painted breeze block walls inside. Service fine. Home made pasta dishes very good. Pizzas fine but nothing special. Desserts nice.

Hate to do this as the service was outstanding but over $250.00 for 4 dinners and two were chicken that was a ripoff and that was without drinks. We ordered the lobster ravioli in saffron sauce and they were excellent. As was my lobster thermador but the 2 chicken piccata diners were horrible and the seafood dish was at best... More

As we approached, the owner said "we have air conditioning in the dining room". It must have been at that moment that she turned it on. The owner was very hospitable but the rest of the staff was fair. Wife wanted ice, never came. Food was palatable. Veggie lasagna was like a buttery pot pie with noodles, lobster ravioli was...

The best part of our visit was the woman who appeared to be the owner. She checked on us during our meal (we were awkwardly the only people in the place because we missed lunch and were eating so early!) and she gave us all hugs as we left. The food, however, was not that great. The gnocchi WAS nice... More

The food was very good but my shrimp in the pasta seemed a little stringy and not as fresh as I would have liked. The pasta was perfect el dente regardless and the sauce was exceptional. My wife had the green ravioli and it was a standout. Clearly pasta is their specialty. My son had the ribeye steak and while... More

It's a short walk from the Marriott. The best Italian food I've ever eaten and some of the best food on St. Kitts. The dining room is air conditioned. The owner is very helpful and truly wants you to have a great dining experience. She even gives you a hug before you leave!

The restaurant is a cozy little place not far from the Marriott, and the best Italian I've ever had (including restaurants in Venice, Florence, and Rome). The food was amazing, the restaurant is authentic, and the entire place feels very welcoming and pleasant. The younger waitress seemed indifferent or tired, but the lovely Italian couple running the place is super... More

We went here after being disappointed by another Italian place. We LOVED it!!! The atmosphere is like having dinner in the owner's home-very warm and welcoming. My husband and I got an excellent bottle of wine. The gnocchi is out of this world!!! Everything was fresh and delicious. We liked it so well we back for pizza the night before... More
