“Okay Italian, poor service!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 December 2013 via mobile

Poor service from our server (not one smile all night), but the bartender and server assistance's were great. Too bad the 15% gratuity goes to the server!

As for the food, everyone at the table was pleased with what they ordered.

“Went for pizza but ordered the rack of lamb!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 December 2013

We dined on Wednesday, December 4, 2013, our pizza night out, we ordered one of their specialty pizzas, while enjoying a glass of wine, the waitress went by with a rack of lamb chops. I stopped the waitress and we decided to take the pizza home after we have the rack of lamb. It was superb, six nice loin chops with smashed potatoes. I polished off the meal with a delicious creme brulee and my wife had the sorbet. Service was prompt, efficient and courteous and the waitress and the wait staff team were excellent in tending to our requests. The musician playing the saxaphone and singing added to the ambiance. The price was reasonable considering the quality of the meals served

“Good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 November 2013 via mobile

This place is on the Simpson Bay resort. The service was really good, the staff was very friendly and attentive. I'm picky about Italian food so for me, this food was good, not awesome but good. My husband had the lasagna and loved it, I had the chicken. We were overall happy with this restaurant.

“Cozy restaurant on a rainy night”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 October 2013

The very good Italian food is very good but A bit pricey. The wait staff is attentive and friendly and the atmosphere is pleasant. The restaurant was not busy on the night we were there. However, two of the patrons were smoking which put a damper on the evening.

“Great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 October 2013

We were the only diners there, they had live music (steel drums) food was great. I had the special, which was a 4 course meal that you could choose different meals from. I had the lasagna (delicious) Mahi Mahi (delicious) and dessert were italian cookies. Service was great, food even better! I think this restaurant is underrated and more people should go there!
