Ate here a few times, and the meals were always delicious. Excellent pizzas, with crispy base and not too much filling (the Italian style). Extensive menu to choose from, including the attached Sports bar with burgers, steaks and Mexican. Try the Lychee Martini, so refreshing

We stopped at the adjoining sports bar and was surprised to find this restaurant attached. It also houses a resort at the back. You can choose from two menus (one Italian one from the sports bar). We opted for the Italian and the pasta was great. I also had the prawn salad which was huge. We ate here twice on whilst in Kuta and would recommend.

Don't be misled by the fact that this is an Italian restaurant, there is great variety for everyone, from burgers to pizzas to pastas to seafood. We went looking for prawns/seafood & this was where we found the right fit. We had the Hawaiian pizza, lamb pasta and plate of tiger prawns. It was so much more than we expected. 8 sizeable delicious seawater tiger prawns and a huge pizza (30cm) which I couldnt even finish. The pasta was also a decent portion and so tasty. The staff are so friendly and helpful & the service was very quick. The prices are higher than average but what you get for it is totally worth it. Try the Italian coffee too! Highly recommend for a dinner treat.

We had dinner here while Kuta. The reviews looked good so we decided to try it out. Ww ordered one of their homemade pastas, the lasagna, along with a Caesar salad. The lasagna was ok, the pasta portion did taste fresh, but the flavor in the sauce and meat lacked flavor. It tasted more like pasta sauce from a jar. We then decided to order dessert and chose the semi-freddo, which was supposedly a customer favorite. It was good, but it took them 20min. to finally serve it to us and let me tell you, my husband was getting impatient. Apparently they were having a freezer problem. I say eat elsewhere if you could...perhaps we just ordered the wrong thing?

Had a pleasant day out today and wanted to end with a nice Italian dinner having read so much good reviews about it.

We were ushered to a table inside and my wife, daughter and son were all seated in a somewhat innocuous table with wooden chairs. Food came promptly but five minutes into my pasta I began to scratch violently especially on my thighs. My daughter also started scratching and when I stood up I saw huge mite bites on my thighs and started to swell up. We had to hurriedly end our meal as I suspect the bugs came from our chairs!

When the adjacent table saw us, I saw a Japanese female patron stood up as well and she too had the bites.

There was another white lady who saw what happened and came over to gave us an account of what happened. She too ate at the same restaurant at the chairs a few days ago and went back with rashes. When she went back she didn't know what it was and when she saw what happened this time she could now relate the bites were indeed from the same set of chairs!

I am glad your manager came over to apologize and provided some spray on my thighs. She even took pictures.

I am afraid because of this I have to give this a low rating. I even had to go Guardian next door to get an anti histamine prescription on my own account and rush back to my hotel.

I hope the owner or management would read this and do something. Not a pleasant meal given the price.
