has the best shrimp in this place. Loved the ocean view at night. Interestingly its very quiet in the dining area. You really cant hear the music. Lovely staff. Excellent service. The food came out on time. Can do better though with the dining setting. Seem a bit outdated. Great experience though

Il Covo has the best pizza in town. There is something magical about their pizzas and I can't stay away! Worth a visit for a meal.

This restaurant is special because of its Italian cuisine. The food is mouth watering and their pizza is stone cooked which is how authentic Italian pizza is cooked. The pasta is Al dente. The view into the Indian Ocean is delightful and the service is top notch.

A truly romantic place to have lunch and dinner, on the weekends the restaurant becomes a flocked night club well known for its music and atmosphere. This restaurant is a success on it own.

Well done Antonio Dabari !
