Through the grapevine, Siena is taking over the Red Stripe Restaurant in Narra. They should do fine as there isnt much in that end of RI in Italian food.

    Have you been to "Sergio's"? I think that is the name. It used to be Heffies. I heard good things about that restaurant but I have not been yet myself.

      I went there about a year ago. My friends took us. It was a B- at best. Italian restaurants are simple places. Pasta is Pasta.

        I guess I'll still try it. I must say though, pasta is pasta only when someone is good at preparing it. I know it seems simple but I am amazed at how many restaurants do not do pasta well. In thinking about my favorite pasta places, Peurini's comes to mind. I'll try to think of some others.

                What I am saying is some restaurants prepare pasta better than others.
