Yes, I clearly remember that night. My restaurant was mostly full for dinner when a family with a lot of screaming kids out of control step inside. I gently ask to calm down the kids because other people was enjoying the nice and calm atmosphere of the restaurant, but they seems don't care at all. So I please ask again... More

This is a very clean, simple and reasonable restaurant on the road side with excellent service and friendly staff. I had the linguine with shrimp in cream sauce (divine). I would definitely eat there again and recommend any traveler to Portland, Jamaica to stop by and try there pasta (especially pasta lovers)!

Very clean space, right on the road, convenient stop for a sit down meal or just something to snack on. The prices are good and what I had was a nice meal. A grilled chicken salad and my partner had a chicken breast sandwich. I will be back to try the pizza, I have no doubt they are delicious.

The place was recommended by our Italian hostel owner so we went there and were not disappointed. We had pizzas and they were quite delicious. So if you are craving some Italian food while in Jamaica thats the place to go.

Very good Italian food there in Portland. Probably the best I've had in a long time. The pastas are to die for. It might be better Italian food than in Kingston. I would recommend any traveler to Portland to stop and try food there.

I saw this restaurant downtown in Port Antonio and thought nothing of it, as most of the places reviewed on trip advisor are usually farther way from the town center. The place was clean and the staff friendly. The food was quite good one person had linguine with shrimp in a red sauce and the other person the same but... More

We had a peperoni pizza and a spicy chicken pizza. I enjoyed both pizzas. There were plenty of back packers in and out of the restaurant. It was a nice place to go for moderate prices. We had plenty of space and good atmosphere. I highly recommend it.
