“Very enticing wee restaurant”
Reviewed July 26, 2013

This restaurant is right by the beach and has so much character. The food was great overall and the service was top rate. One downside was that my wife's Penne was undercooked but she was so hungry that she ate it anyway!

“hmmm....”
Reviewed July 15, 2013

We went to this restaurant in a group of 7 with reservations having heard so much about the place. The place is nicely done up but very hot inside so sit outside if you can. The olive oil that was served with the bread was reeking with salt and inedible. The food arrived after 1and 1/2 hrs with lots of apologies and "we have too many guests tonight" which was not on as this is part and parcel of the business on how to organize and manage. The food was then served by an overworked waiter in the middle of the table for us to sort out! The fish soup is very good but has to be ordered one day in advance. The mixed grill and fish is well just that: grilled fish. Nothing to rave about. Have had better at my own bbq. All in all food quality is okay, i.e. average. Nothing you would recall, unless you like bland food. And meal price is not for the fainthearted.

“Best Italian place at Gili”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

The food was lovely. In my hometown you have lots of Italian places. Maybe two or three of them are as good as this place. Nice staff, nice appetizers.

“Fantastic italian food!”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

We stayed 5 nights in GT and once, we discovered this nice, little restaurant, we just HAD to come back again. The italian owners and the staff are very friendly and always up for a joke.
The food is just excellent! Make sure to try the homemade pasta and don't forget to book a table in advance!

“Best pasta outside of Italy”
Reviewed July 5, 2013

This place is run by an Italian couple who have done an excellent job of training their staff. They make their pasta in house daily so it's really fresh. The owner also goes fishing during the day and serves up his fresh catch for dinner so seafood is also highly recommended.
Trust me, if you're feeling like Italian food, this is the place to go. You won't regret it!

Tip: they also have 4-5 bungalows right behind their beach front property for a great deal compared to everything else on the main strip. And they offer a guests a free huge and i mean huge breakfast of all you can eat fruit, pancakes, egss, homemade breads, cakes, smotthies etc.
