Way better than the food at the Marriot, and much less in price. I had the fettuccini alfredo and thought it was excellent. The atmosphere is not exactly Caribbean, yet still has an odd charm to it. I have no issue in highly recommending this...More

I found this little place delightful, despite the passive aggressive server. The owner, a Frenchman from St Martin made up for her lack of charm however. I had the punkin ravioli in a butter sauce. The best I’ve had outside Italy. My wife had gnocchi...More

Husband and I went there based on recommendation from locals. Very good Italian pastas and generous portions. Green lobster ravioli was excellent!

Quiet. Had to send back pasta...chicken was re cooked, dry and cold. They made fresh chicken but it too was over cooked and portion was tiny although tons of pasta. Meantime my wife's meal was finished...hate that. She complained it was tasteless.

Our first impression of this restaurant was not a positive one, as you feel like you're sitting in something that is a cross between a Knights of Columbus hall and a dungeon (maybe a bit of an exaggeration, but it really isn't nice). In a...More

Stopped in for dinner tonight. Wasn't very hungry so we split the carpaccio, gorgonzola gnocchi and tiramisu. Wasn't impressed at all with the carpaccio, but the gnocchi were excellent. Soft and fluffy with a creamy gorgonzola sauce. The tiramisu was one of the better ones...More

We all had the pasta. It was cooked to order. The sauce was true Italian and we all enjoyed our meals. Being Italian, I would say this to s the closet to my grandmothers recipe

If you are looking for a family run Italian restaurant Ciao is a good option. Yummy pizza and pasta and need to try the Tiramisu! A nice touch is having the owner come around and talk to the guests. Get in early as it fills...More

We were a bit taken aback by the premises. Happy colours, but on cinderblock walls. The food and service more than make up for the decor! My wife ordered the ricotta and spinach ravioli in pink sauce. I had the gnocchi with Gorgonzola sauce. Both...More

I am not even sure they have email. This is NOT a fancy 0lace but the food is good. Marshall’s on St Kitts is ALOT fancier if that what you want. As far a Caio try using your hotels concierge to make reservation or just... More
