Although it is a small restaurant the standard of food was excellent. This showed in the number of Italians eating in the restaurant.

Wow this place is such a find. We visited this place on our fist night on St Lucia and it just blew our minds. Firstly we were met with a friendly smile from all the staff. The management know how to give service (A1). The menu is enough to get the taste buds going, and the atmosphere is just right... More

The owner was so accommodating in helping me order without a menu in front of me. The pizza's were delicious and the pasta was perfect. We were pleased with finding such great pizza... More

Neither of us were impressed and like every seasoned reviewer here, we've been to Italy a dozen times, etc. Not sure if the temperature of the oven was too low because it was lunch time but the pizza...

We tried a lot of pizzas on different islands, from St. Lucia to Martinique to Guadeloupe, but this one is really the best. Wood oven, cross, thin, juicy. The way a good pizza has to be. We had some on take away and even after a ten minutes drive it was still... delicious! Extras with extra costs are possible. Delivery... More

Good food, reasonable prices and relatively nice setting off the beaten track, this restaurant does serve what I would refer to as street Italian- pizzas, lasagne and a. Range of pasta - not authentic but not bad either. Service however was disappointing - slow by a young man who didn't really have a grip resulting in rechecking each order, forgetting... More
