Everything we had was terrific. Calamari, gnocchi, eggplant, caesar salad… really, I don't think you can go wrong with anything on the menu. We were thrilled that they offered Averna Amaro. It's a digestive that we discovered in Rome a few years ago. We rarely see it on menus. Owner/manager was accommodating - as we didn't wish to eat on... More

Nobody had any complaints and we will visit the restaurant again next year. The food was not consistent in other years but it was excellent in March 2016. This... More

I would want to rate this restaurant "5" because in all honesty the pasta was probably the richest and creamiest I have had in a while. The atmosphere is lovely. Their staff is friendly.

I know what you're thinking: Yeah right, this is not "real" Italian food... but honestly, coming from a chick who lives in Jersey, in an Italian neighborhood, with all Italian friends, and a part-Italian husband... this place is legit. Food is quality and fresh, and the pasta is unbelievably soft and melt in your mouth. I got the lamb shank... More

While visiting St. Martin we found this awesome Italian restaurant along the highway. One cool thing they have is in the front windows they have a waterfall type feature that elimiates the view of the road.

What a great Italian restaurant! The pasta is homemade and the sauces are to die for. There is a small outdoor seating area or you can dine inside. Either is a great choice as the setting is very classy. The servers were excellent and attentive. Fine dining at it's best!

Hello Eric, Thanks for your impressive feedback, as a matter of fact, we are looking for a food and beverage manager that can convince our supplier to lower their prices! If you are gifted and can accomplish that task you might want to pass by and pick up an application form. Quality costs, but evidently is not for everybody. Regards.... More
