The restaurant is in a nice location and very nice. It is in a great location nearly to large resorts. The was friendly, but not overly so and a little slow, even by Island standards. The foods priced a little high for portions and we found the food somewhat bland. My friend order eggplant parmesan and it did come with... More

Very good Italian food and good service. The overhead lights and road noise is a bit over the top! Prices were a little high. I did very much enjoy the Eggplant Parmesan. Portions are a decent size, but not enough to have any leftovers.

Have been to this restaurant previously and loved it. This year the portions were very small and the food was terrible. We also tried ordering there pizza on another day and that was not much better. Will not visit this place again!!

This restaurant is open air, great for non smokers. Many tv screens... Food is average.. Service is below average.. We live on sxm and have only given them two chances to be certain enough to judge.

We ate dinner here 3 times in one week. It was convenient to,our resort but proved to be one of the best kept secrets in the Simpson Bay Area. The pasta, piazza and seafood were excellent. A very nice wine list too. The service is excellent.

Love it! The food is awesome. In my opinion the best italian restaurant in St. Maarten. The food tasted fresh and flavorful. No matter what you will eat, pasta, meat or the pizza - You will not be disappointed. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Will always visit again.

Grossly overpriced. Had the chicken Parmesan. Tiny portion. Struggled to find any chicken in the batter and cheese. Sauce tastes like chef boy-ar-dee. Horrible. Skip this place.
