This restaurant is also listed under Ciao Restaurant Italiano! Read those reviews, we had a disappointing meal, there are nicer places to eat!

I have never had a bad meal at any SK restaurant but this place was horrendous. My husband ordered a grilled chicken salad and it was the saddest grilled chicken I have ever seen. It literally looked like they threw several pieces of lettuce with...More

We remembered the building from prior trips when it was Italian food. We thought it was the same, but the former operation was PJs. My husband had the lasagna and he enjoyed his. For me, the chicken parm was just ok. The rating is probably...More

The food is good here but the service is hilarious. You could be in a faulty towers sketch coming here. Very friendly husband and wife team but completely inexperienced at running a restaurant. Still worth visiting but don’t expect perfect service. Good Italian food and...More

The food was ok although overpriced, just like all the restaurants in St. Kitts. The bad part was the atmosphere, almost secluded in the back with fans and very hot and stuffy. We would not go back, even though the staff was friendly.

The restaurant is not much to look at but the food is ok. We were warned to only order pasta or pizza and both were very good and we enjoyed our meal. No atmosphere to speak of but nice food.

It felt like we were entering the twilight zone. The owners, an older Italian couple were both there. The husband sat at a table in the bar area and the wife ran through a memorized list of specials. We ordered a bottle of Acqua Panna,...More

It is less than a ten minute walk --- in the area is a liquor store plus Rams mini grocery store and 3-4 other restaurants. But don't limit yourself to walking restaurants as some just a short taxi ride away are well worth... More

Doubt it. They have some decent wine at a good price. We drank some Chilean merlot for $26 a bootle. It was very drinkable.
