Very nice setting and ambiance, competent service. Food itself was rather standard Italian fare but prepared with good ingredients and everything was more or less well executed. Definitely a strong 5 star hotel restaurant and worth a visit for fans of Italian cuisine.

My family and I came for dinner and the service was pretty poor. Management didn't seem bothered that we were sending our food back and they couldn't even get a pizza right. How can a pizza taste bad? We asked for toppings on a pizza...More

Staying at Sugar Beach make sure you book this restaurant on a couple of occasions at least. Setting great, staff superb and a nice relaxing walk back to the bars at Sugar Beach after choosing from the great menu. Make sue you book.
