“Best Italian restaurant, but a little distant from the "main drag"”
Reviewed 15 September 2013

This restaurant was recommended to us by some locals - and it was certainly the best Italian food we've had in a long time (even compared to La Dolce Vita and our favourite one back home). But the attitude of the wait-staff was very off-hand and unhelpful. Shame!

“Pizza & pasta hit”
Reviewed 18 July 2013 via mobile

We had a pizza and 3 pasta dishes here. Food was very tasty, but was kind of hoping for homemade pasta. Pizza looked great and it all got eaten, so that speaks volumes! Nice touches, such as bread sticks and a seemingly endless supply of mini bread rolls. Desserts were impressive. Worth a visit if Italian is what you have a hankering for.

“BEST PIZZA in South Pacific”
Reviewed 29 May 2013

Wood fire oven cooked delicious homemade pizzas.
Real italian food, didn't even taste better in italy.
Relaxed terrace, for romantic dinner.
Fresh homemade different dishes of tasty pasta.

Great choice of italian wines too.
Worth the price, just a few higher than frozen pizza served in other places.
Went there many time, and was never disappointed.

“Excellent pizzas”
Reviewed 29 March 2013

Small trattoria tucked away in a shopping complex on Route de I'Anse Vata, this restaurant has a cosy inside area and a leafy courtyard. The service is fast and friendly and the pizza menu huge (3 pages of just pizzas), in addition to pastas and other food! The pizzas were absolutely perfect! Thin crust, just a bit crisp at the edges and softer in the middle, just the right amount of cheese and topping and served at the perfect temperature so that it is warm and fresh but does not burn your mouth! I chose he gruyere instead of the mozarella version and appreciated the sharper taste. There is a decent Italian wine list to choose from.
