Best garlic pizza bread I've ever tasted. Met by the chef himself. Good lasagne and good service. Will definately go back one day

I've just returned from Gambia and read the review 'Run by a Nutter' which made me laugh but was our experience too. The place was in complete darkness when we arrivedm having been escorted by some locals touting crocodile excursions. The owner hustled us in as though there was an emergency and then locked the front gate/door behind us. We... More

So it's our first night in The Gambia. We've never been before and we don't know what to expect. We're a little apprehensive of leaving the hotel due to some of the things we've read on the internet about being accosted by locals and them not leaving you alone (which isn't true, by the way). We met another UK couple... More

Eventhough gambas are widely available in Gambia, there were only a few of them on my "Gamba pizza". The basil that was mentioned on the menu consisted of a few flakes of dried basil.There was a lot of cheese though! Looking at the relatively high prices they should do something about the quality of the food. The staff is very... More

Decided to try Italian Connection after reading some good reviews. What a let down! Restaurant is nicely laid out but has been let go, with tired decor and tatty furnishings. The proprietor obviously couldn't be bothered to attend to the few diners who were there and the only waitress stood around looking bored. One can overlook basic surroundings and service... More

We went to the Italian Connection a few times & we really enjoyed it. It's a shame that the area is quieter than usual because it affects the trade. Home cooked lasagna is amazing & pizzas so tasty. With out a doubt the owner makes the place, he's an absolute scream & even when he was busy he still took... More

We ordered only fairly simple pizza's and beers but they only had two bottles of beer in stock ! and the pizzas took over an hour to arrive, did not have the correct toppings and the bases... More

After reading such great reviews, we invited some friends out for the evening saying that Trip Advisor reviews never lie..... Slow service, and not that gracious, no air conditioning, no cold bottled water, ran out of beer after 2 bottles, cutlery was dirty, toilets were shabby. The food..... burnt bases on the pizza, toppings not matching the menu when served,... More
