My wife and I came to this place at the suggestion of our resort staff from across the street. Do not make your judgment as you first walk into the place as it is not much for ambiance. Our server suggested some of the items we ordered and it was delicious from appetizer to dessert. The Fresh Clam Linguini was... More

We walked by this place on the way to Safeway and decided to stop by for dinner. We expected a normal rendition of an Italian meal. Wow, were we surprised! I had the grilled ahi with pineapple, couscous and arugula in limoncello butter sauce and my husband had the house pasta. Both dishes were fabulous. The fish itself was outstanding.... More

I went for a traditional pasta dinner, spaghetti and meatballs. The meatballs were dry and too salty, and frankly I make a better marinara sauce! I asked for bread before my meal and the waitress told me it comes with the entre. They supposedly make their own ciabatta bread. It came over toasted and soaked in the marinara sauce. There...

While I only ordered the caprese salad and meatballs, I felt that these would give a good representation of the food. Excellent meatballs and sauce. I could not finish my meal and what I took home was still really good the next day. It does get busy, and either order to go, or make reservations.

The Greek Pasta is our favorite right off of the plane; you know... when you are starving! This has two locations, one is in a strip mall (the first locations) the second is behind the taco bell. The second one has a full bar and a pineapple upside down cake martini that is dessert! Great choice for lunch or dinner!

A little place tucked into a mini mall kind of place. Not to hard to find. Wonderful Italian food. Unlike some reviewers, we had good service. The decor leaves a lot to be desired and it's kind of a weird layout. If you are in the front there may be a bunch of people walking past to a large room... More

Really bad setting/ambiance, very plain decor, didn't feel particularly clean, and no music made all was off putting. The food was surprisingly good, including one of the better Caesar salad I've had and a pretty solid lasagna. The service was okay, not great, but not awful.

Good food. Oddly if not slightly strange restaurant layout but don't let that stop you. The food is good, mid to high price. One of the few places on the island open later into the evening.

From the outside we didn't think this was going to be good but we were absolutely wrong! The food was really good and took some home for those that couldn't make it out and they loved it too. Make a reservation if you go, we didn't and had a wait for a bit to get seated.

We went here with high hopes, thanks to the recommendation of the 10th edition of the "blue book". We were disappointed. My chicken parmigiana was basic and fairly tasteless. My wife's dinner was much the same. And the service was LACKING. We had trouble getting their attention to pay...which should be on the top of their list! Not recommended.
