Food wasn't very good. The Hawaiian pizza pineapple was fermented. The antipasta salad looked like a small meat tray-no salad with American cheese! Sad. This restaurant used to have good food.

We were pleasantly surprised by this restaurant. Everything we ordered was very fresh and flavorful. The prices were good, did not feel that they were trying to gouge the tourists. Our waitress was very friendly and happily accommodated our special requests.

After moving here from Colorado, with a host of excellent, competitive Italian restaurants, we were hard pressed to find great Italian food on the island, until we found this place. A year later, we are still frequent patrons. We have never had a below average...More
