“Delivery straight to your door!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 8, 2013

I wanted something different one night, and was feeling lazy, so I called Ciao to have a pizza delivered. I got the Jerk chicken with onions and pepperoni. It took about 30 minutes for arrival and it was hot (I was staying on the cliffs). It was a little pricey for 1 pizza, 34.56 for pizza & delivery.
The pizza was good, the crust perfect, a lot of toppings.
I would eat here again, but probably eat in, because of delivery cost.

“Not as good”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 5, 2013

We ate here on Thanksgiving for dinner since it is a restaurant where everyone should be able to get something. My wife had the chicken pesto pasta, which was as great as she remembered from our last trip to Negril. I had a pizza, which was ok, but not worth the cost. Our other relative had lobster, that he stated was ok, but not the quality expected in negril especially for $32. The lobster portion was tiny too.

It's also a shame that they automatically add a gratuity and service fee that added almost $20 to the bill. We would much rather tip based on service than have it automatically added without warning.

“Great Jerk Pizza”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 3, 2013

From the Road it is hard to tell just how nice a place this is. Once inside they have a big indoor seating area and a large balcony overlooking the road.

The menu is a nice mix of Jamaican/Italian flair mix. the Jerk Pizza was great and they had a nice wine list.

A must visit if you are in Negril. Across the street from Samsara on west end road.

“Nice ambiance, good food.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2013

I frequent Negril and have been eyeing this place for a while. The ambiance and decor are nice and service was friendly. It wasn't hard to get attention, though, as this is still slow season and I think there may have been one other table that had customers. I ordered the reggae lasagna which was good, but my godson ordered pizza which was really good. Also the grilled snapper was delicious. The mixed drink that I ordered, the Lover's Leap was a let down. I've had much better out of a bottle from the local supermarket. Dessert was a coconut custard pie which was pretty good as well. All in all a good dining experience, though a little pricey. For four entrees (2 pastas, 1 snapper and 1 small pizza) two desserts and one drink, the bill came to $95.00.
