My FAVORITE, yes favorite restaurant on the island. The chef and owners make a real effort to purchase true imported ingredients for an incredible menu straight from Italy. I was definitely skeptical the first time I visited because I did not believe that there would be anything truly Italian in Belize- I ate my own words. Not to mention a quality wine selection.

The patio at night reminded me of some restaurant feels in Tulum with layered patios and string lights. It is definitely one of the most expensive restaurants on the island but it completely worth its value.

Thank you for your kind review. We do import our main ingredients from Italy. Our chef trained for 2 years with Italian chefs but she is Belizean. We really try to hire and train Belizeans as it is their country and they need to work. I feel very proud of our staff as they have really committed to our system and giving great service to our guests. This is their restaurant as much as it is ours!! We hope to see you again.

We were celebrating our 30th Anniversary and on a recommendation we saved this place for our last night in Belize. The food was great! The staff was great! We opted for the "house" cocktails, which were awesome as well.

Treat yourself to an upscale 'Island' Italian restaurant. Cloth napkins, great atmosphere.....not at all what we expected to find in the Islands. Lush garden oasis, and a very tranquil setting. You can tell that this was a 'build a luxurious place, and they will come' kind of place. Very well thought out vision for this restaurant, with EXCELLENT food to match the service.

You are right, we built what we thought the island was ready for and needed and they are coming! A lot of fun building it and fun watching our staff grow as well! Thank you for your awareness and comment on Il Pellicano.
