Food is great, one of the best Italian restaurant of the island if not the best one. Giulia is super kind and a pleasure to talk to. Good service, the best we've experienced in Mauritius.

Really tasty Italian food with the best service we have experienced in a week in Mauritius. All the seafood is fresh, vegetarian options are plenty and there is also a good selection of wines. Pro tip: order some chanpagne and you get free limoncello!
