“Great for families!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2014

If you are like us and have prepubescent boys (or an Italian husband) who need a pasta or pizza fix every now and then, this place is perfect when you have had enough of French bistros. Good wood fired pizza ( if a bit oily), decent tagliatelle with prawns, ravioli my 12 yo demolished in about 5 mins and good Italian wine made for a happy family. Definitely walk past la dolce Vita and keep going to casa Italia (about 10 mins walk further along rue anse vata)!

“Don't bother”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2014

Visiting from NZ. Me and my girlfriend were in noumea for a week and ate at several restaurants.
They were all awesome except this place which was more expensive by comparison (the roof, stone grill, amadeus). The only good thing this place has going is the pizza and the wine selection. Our mains were awful. My girlfriend chose the lasagne which had no flavour and way too much béchamel sauce. I had an eye fillet which was average. The salad i got was a bowl of lettuce literally. Very disappointed. I tipped at all the restaurants but I just couldn't bring myself to at this one.

“A great little Italian restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 6, 2014

Very popular amongst the locals. Would recommend making a reservation although I managed to get in without one. Pizzas are highly recommended. Good selection of Italian wines. Like everything in Noumea it's not cheap but worth it.

“Best Italian restaurant, but a little distant from the "main drag"”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2013

This restaurant was recommended to us by some locals - and it was certainly the best Italian food we've had in a long time (even compared to La Dolce Vita and our favourite one back home). But the attitude of the wait-staff was very off-hand and unhelpful. Shame!

“Pizza & pasta hit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2013 via mobile

We had a pizza and 3 pasta dishes here. Food was very tasty, but was kind of hoping for homemade pasta. Pizza looked great and it all got eaten, so that speaks volumes! Nice touches, such as bread sticks and a seemingly endless supply of mini bread rolls. Desserts were impressive. Worth a visit if Italian is what you have a hankering for.
