Dubbed “the best Italian food in Barbados” by the late opera great Luciano Pavarotti, Il Tempio is located beachfront on Barbados’ magnificent West Coast.

Il Tempio was featured in Condé Nast Traveler as “one of the coolest beachfront restaurants in the Caribbean” and in the New York Times’ Frommer’s review as “a restaurant where the chef’s light touch is ideal for tropical dining, an Italian experience not to be missed!”. Enjoy a casual lunch or a magical evening where Italian owners Anna and Leo welcome you, while the chef delights your senses with tantalising dishes
