“Yummmmmmmmmm!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

Great italian food. The staff were amazing with our child. You do need a reservation as it books out because it is so good. The only downside was that for some reason the staff went home before we finished dinner so we did not get dessert. I do not know what happened. But we would go back and eat again because the pasta was just delicious and perfectly flavoured!

“Phenomenal.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013 via mobile

Get there early at 7. Best to book in advance as it gets full and then you can choose a nice table basically on the beach. Dough is also limited to keep it fresh so the earlier the better.

Amzing pizzas and pretty big too.

“Pasta Specialists”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

We go here for pasta often. The food is superb, service is good and the beer is always cold. It is best to book to avoid missing out as they are only open for set times. The owner and his staff have always been friendly.

“Best pizze in the Island”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013 via mobile

It's all in the title. Delicious and rather big home made pizze with limited number per day due to dough batch constraints.
Pastas are also good. Good staff as well. Somewhat rather high maintenance and not so welcoming owner though.

“Great homemade food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

Good pizzas, and friends enjoyed the pasta. Nice place to have a glass of wine and splash out on the island.
