This italian restaurant is located on beach 3. The location is great but the real thing is the food. Everything is so fresh, tasty and home made. I really recommend to go a bit from other beaches and enjoy this amazing place and enjoy the host of the italian owner!

Away from the parties and noise is this delightful and romantic Italian joint. The closest authentic Italian on an island far, far from Italy. Worth the few extra steps!!
