“Good food no view”
Reviewed November 15, 2013

Very good food. Small portions, and as always crazy expensive. Room is an interesting renovation of old house. Very limited lighting. Really not that different from big city dining. There are more unique places to eat on the island, but a very good experience.

“excellent food, steep prices”
Reviewed November 14, 2013

the food is really good but portions are tiny, and everything is very expensive. who wants to pay Euro 28 for a tiny appetizer? Or Euro 34 for a tiny risotto? nice space, nice waitstaff, excellent food, but far too expensive esp. given the fact there is no view whatsoever. but the scene loves it...

“... it is the restaurant I came back for more...”
Reviewed November 8, 2013

....and while being on a short a trip. It says a lot about this restaurant, specially if you have Italian blood or extreme love for their food. The totally Italian crew made me feel at home, the food was excellent, and the people accommodating in order to adjust the items in the menu to our particular taste.
In short, I just had to return and try their veal raviolis....mmmmm....

“the best Italian food”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

A truly great dining experience in the heart of Gustavia. Great pastas and fish dishes and a wonderful wine selection. There are many great restaurants in St Barts but this one should not be missed especially if you like Italian food.

“Great take out”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

We ordered a feast to bring back to the villa which was incredible. It looks like a busy place and we plan to visit again next year. It's also off the main road,which will also take you back towards the airport if you are new to driving in St. Bart's . Pricey, but everything is there.. Yum yum!
