We loved this place! The food is outstanding, it is most definitely our pick for the Island. Bookings recommended. The small restaurant has a lovely outlook over the sea and the live entertainment was outstanding as was the friendly service.

We (a party of 10 adults and 5 kids) dined at Tuoro for a special birthday lunch. The view was good, the food was beautiful and the tutti frutti punch was amazing and our host Michelle was absolutely lovely....I cannot recommend enough!!
