“Aussie living in Samoa”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

Best food we have eaten in Samoa. Location is not that great. If you sit outside may be visited by a dog or two, thats life here in Samoa. But service presentation and food, just great. They seem to know how to provide a good service. You will however be paying Australian prices, not a cheap place to eat.But worth it.

“Best food on the island - and it's Italian!”
Reviewed February 15, 2013

I can't believe my favorite Italian restauraunt is in Samoa!

We went here on our first night and had to finish off our holiday here too!
The staff are friendly, the prices great and the food comes out fast ( not a normal thing in Samoa!).
Try the pizza bread balls, so yummy! I had the seafood marinara, boyfriend a meat dish, both dishes to die for and the second time we had the seafood anti pasto, I did not want to share it!

I'd fly to Samoa once a month to eat here!

“Best eating experience in Apia”
Reviewed February 8, 2013 via mobile

Hands down the best food I had during my week in Apia. I don't eat seafood but the Seafood Platter for two (65 SAT), was delicious.

The service was quick, efficient & helpful. I went twice & would definitely go again if I found myself back in Apia.
