Sadly disappointing.

This `new` Italian restaurant is right opposite the Ledra Beach Hotel in the Aliathon Holiday Village site on the East side of Paphos. In theory there`s plenty of parking but a wedding in the area the night we went caused complete chaos which, of course, was not the restaurants` fault! There is a lift and/or stairs up to the restaurant itself which is very clean and airy and when the weather improves the whole place will `open` up. The (only) waiter/barman was friendly and efficient but the place wasn`t exactly packed.

The menu, although on the surface expansive, had few of the traditional Italian dishes that we would have expected to see. For example there was no antipasti, no Carpaccio, no veal etc etc. We were also surprised to see that there were no pasta starters and neither could you order a smaller portion to have one as such. We ordered the aubergine prosciutto with goats cheese in a tomato sauce and the gruyere cheese rice balls as starters followed by the lamb chops in a drizzle of cheese sauce and pork fillets in a marsala sauce. The starters were ok but the main courses were very poor indeed. They both came with a large helping of spinach (very salty), a small helping of carrots (virtually raw) and a square of potatoes dauphinoise (ok). Neither of the meat courses were of the best quality but they were cooked ok.

We were so disappointed with the main courses that we decided not to order desserts (a very limited choice) or even coffee.

With so many other very good Italian restaurants in Paphos (a few of which I`ve reviewed) this is not one we could recommend and we certainly wouldn`t go back. I've described it as 'budget' above (because of the limited choices) but their prices are still far too high given the much better Italian restaurants available.

When we left the road outside was still backed up and the chaos in the parking lot was still going on!
