Have just had some delicious BBQ red snapper and Kerala fish. The boys enjoyed delicious pizza and pasta. There is a 'stunning' fan above us keeping us cool and the rain is tip tapping on the tin roof. The waiter is working hard and aims to please, our crew must baffle him but he is taking in his stride. Excellent value for money a main dish is less than a desert at our hotel!

As this was an Italian Indian Restaurant we initially avoided it as we wanted to concentrate on just Indian food. After a week or so, we craved a change and went for a pizza and weren't dissappointed. They were excellent, as were the other dishes we tried on further visits. The Indian food was also amazing with a large and varied menu and efficient and attentive staff. Even 'mossie' coil burners were placed under the table without us asking. The food in resort was excellent everywhere but this is where we had our meal on our last night and that says it all.

We were on a KTDC package and really fed up of their limited food options. Kovalam was our last destination and on our way to KTDC samudra i saw IL Marinaio and said to my wife that we must try it out and i must admit that it was one of the best Italian Indian meals i had ever.
We went for a lunch as it is only 2 mins walk from KTDC Samudra and right opposite to Uday Samudra.
The place is very nice and clean, no thrills and frills but will still give you that what-a-place feeling. The staff knows contents of every dish what they are serving. Amazing taste of the food, it took them half an hour to start serving first one but the resultant is worth a wait, perfectly cooked and the price is surprisingly cheap. we had a total bill of INR 800/- for two in lunch which had a couple of dishes and beverage.

A must try if you in Kovalam

This restaurant is opposite the uday Samudra in kovalam and is a little hard to find but definitely worth a visit.

My wife and I visited this restaurant twice during our 2 week holiday. Both times the food was outstanding with good quality produce used and generous portion sizes. I ordered a calzone which was literally hanging off my plate. It covers a multitude of cuisines including Italian and Indian.

If you are around Samudra beach definitely take a stroll up the main road and you will find this place on the right just after the taxi rank.
