Thoroughly enjoyed my meal here tonight. There's something quite unique about the clash of cultures between Italy and the Pacific. I loved the decor and the music which reminded me of a simpler, more innocent time. Now to the food: we had crumbed prawns (...More

Buona sera.. io arrivero' a tonga il 21 marzo.. e sicuramente verro' a mangiare da voi per prima per fare due chiacchiere. Per caso avete bisogno di personale? Posso fare il cameriere. Anche se di mestiere sono giardiniere.. ma mi adeguo a tutto di quello che c'e' bisogno.. a presto comunque!
