We were given a bit of a sales pitch while walking past and were not disappointed. Excellent pizzas (if a little on the large side), pasta and service. Joe Calzaghe was eating there, which was a bit random, but a nice surprise to see the great man as a lifelong boxing fan.

We did others italians restaurant during the trip and this one for us was definitely the 1#. (Only bad point, they bring us some cheese for the pasta in... More

We visited this restaurant as a family of seven and were disappointed. On the face of it the service looked good with plenty of staff and good organisation however the tables are crowded together and you feel on top of each other as they pack the tourists in. We ended up with three separate meals - the first for the... More

Pleasant, fast and yummy food. Nice view. We had pizza and pastas, and gelato for dessert. A bit pricy. We were not there in "rush hour", but had a late lunch. Portions might have been a bit small for dinner? Waiters were very good with the kids. We would go back again. Good food and pleasant people.

This restaurant serves the most amazing ice cream, allowing us to indulge in our holiday treat, large dishes full to the brim with fresh fruits and ice cream made in the true Italian style. The staff were very cheerful, polite and gave a good, speedy service. Tables were clean and the view of the sea was wonderful, what more could... More

Super outdoor seating and tasty food. Resisted the urge to be rushed and ordered a great selection of ice creams for the family that we all tasted. Packed in tightly, but food and atmosphere was great, making it a memorable holiday meal. Great value as well.

The food was nice. We had carpaccio and pizzas all of which were delicious. The service was chaotic. One waiter kept delivering food to the wrong tables and the others spent a lot of time trying to fix his mistakes. Some waiters were literally running with food! This doesn't really make for a relaxing lunch. So, nice food, service could... More

Grand Italia is at the far end of the promenade from the lighthouse amongst a strip of very busy and popular restaurants that cover just about every cuisine possible (seriously, you can get Italian, Mexican, Indian, Japanese, Spanish, Peruvian, Argentine and French food along here). It has a reputation for being busy and for slow service so booking a table... More

Having passed several times and seeing it always full with many people queuing patiently for a table we made a reservation. Table was ready within a few minutes of the booked time and we were quickly seated. From here it went downhill Atmosphere. Bustling and packed so very lively (good). However popularity means tables have been squeezed into every available... More
