Somehow walking into an Italian restaurant on a tropical island still tickles me. I mean, it seems so unlikely. Italian food on a tropical island? Ambergris Caye is not a tropical Disneyland creation. It is the real thing, with real people. And these real people know great Italian and Belizean food when they taste it.

Whether you eat on the veranda, overlooking the impossible blue water of the Caribbean, or in the gorgeous dining room, you'll have the opportunity to enjoy a wide range of foods and people. Little Italy is located on the bottom floor of the Spindrift Hotel, facing the beach. You don't have to worry about reservations, or really anything, well... do show up hungry.

And so it's not strange or unlikely at all that this wonderful restaurant would exist here. The relaxed easy going nature of the residents, the tourists, unwinding, all fit together perfectly here. Come join us; make your first Ambergris dining experience your most memorable one.

Come and Enjoy!

And for a change of pace, take your golf cart, bicycle, boat or feet north of the River to our other fun location...

Sweet Basil

Gourmet Grocery, Restaurant & Bar.

When you're north of the river, please stop and visit our Sweet Basil, and enjoy Gourmet Groceries, Wines, Deli Meats, Pates & Cheeses, Fresh Seafood, Breads & Vegetables, Ice cold beer, darts and an afternoon in paradise.
