Italian Restaurant

“The place is an ideal destination for those who want to have Italian and Mediterranean cuisines during their tropical holiday. They have a wide range of Italian and Mediterranean dishes as well as local cuisine. The mouth-watering, healthy and fresh food at Al Chile Viola Restaurant is expertly prepared by a professional Italian chef called Emiliano Franceschini with the help of his wife, Luz. The staff of Al Chile Viola Restaurant is extremely cordial and multilingual. Candles and crimson-hued lighting make this restaurant ideal for dates. Start things off right with a bottle of red and the beef carpaccio, and be sure to check the chalkboard for mouthwatering specials like sea bass rolled”
