A couple we ran into dining in Orient Bay recommended this restaurant. We stopped by after the carnival and we were so glad we did. It's right next to the movie theatre and I was a bit hesitant as it was in the strip mall area. The food was so good. Be prepared for large, very flavorful portions! We told the waitress we were going to share a salad and appetizer before our meal and she brought them out to the table already split in our separate plates. I couldn't believe how huge they were. Our eggplant parm could have easily fed 4 of us. The pasta is freshly made and the sauces are so good. My biggest surprise was the chocolate molten lava cake. It was the best I have ever had. It was fluffy and moist and just the right consistency. I was hoping to make it back to this side again before we left, but never did. A must try and so reasonably priced compared to some of the restaurants on the island.
The owner/chef who is supposedly no longer the chef chatted with us for a while and he was very pleasant. Definitely worth a try you won't regret it. They also provide a button on the table like the easy button to ring for "service, bread, check" and it pages the waitress! Very cool.

We came on a rainy evening and still chose to sit outside under the canopy. There was another couple sitting outside, but even so, we had trouble getting a waitress when we needed one. They were very kind. The food was average Italian. We ordered a small portion of cheese ravioli for our 10 year old (I think he got 5 small ravioli) but we still got charged for a full portion, so each of his small, square ravioli pieces cost us over $3.50. Our 13 year old had he Lobster Bisque and enjoyed it. The lasagna was average. It was good, but we will try another Italian restaurant on our next visit.

We ate at IZI for the first time after looking at it for 2 years from across the street at Pineapple Pete. We had a pasta dish and a Caesar salad. I had the Carbinera sauce and my wife had Amaticiano, Hers looked pasty and was not very appetizing. She sent it back and had Carbinera instead and was satisfied. The restaurant had a good crowd and was festive. The wait-staff was absolutely amazing. They did everything to make the dinner a great experience.

As soon as we walked in we were treated very kindly. The waiter was awesome and the waitresses were very attentive. We were not rushed and the courses came out one at a time. The food was very tasty... We will definitely be back!
