Absolutely fantastic food. We started with a large antipasto plate and their amazing burrata. Thankfully everyone at the table ordered a different pasta so I was able to try several. The 5 cheese ravioli and cannelloni were favorites. Great value too. They were closed for most of our trip, otherwise we probably would have eaten here more than once.

We have been in Guadeloupe for nearly 2 weeks (don't ask!) and it was so nice to find somewhere that doesn't churn out the same Creole fare as everywhere else. There was a good choice of Italian food starting with carpaccio or cold meats followed by delicious pasta. Very pleasant service and a warm greeting. A welcome change!

If you have a passion for homemade pasta this is your place. It's tiny, so make a reservation, and be patient - every dish is made from scratch.

Everything was delicious and authentic. The ravioli was exceptional. Great atmosphere and friendly staff. Well worth a visit or two in our case :-).

Do check their opening times. We booked and we able to sit outside on this quiet road. Our food was both delicious and interestingly presented. If you like Italian food and fancy a change from Accras and Dourade, then this is a nice place to eat.

We first ate here 2 years ago when we visited Guadeloupe, and this is the first time back since then. I made the reservation via email prior to coming on holiday as the restaurant gets booked up and this was done with ease. We were looking forward to returning and we were not disappointed, the food was beautiful, tasty and... More

Relatively small restaurant with some outdoor seating and a fairly limited menu. Nevertheless, their menu selections are fresh, well prepared and presented, with reasonable portions. We began with with a caprese salad which was very fresh and flavorful. Coming from a cold winter climate it was great to taste fresh, flavorful tomatoes that we just don't get this time of... More

A great place for lunch in St Francois. We sat outside on the sidewalk, watching the world go by. A bit hard to find but once there great for fresh pasta. We had no reservations, just walked in. We had read the reviews and were not disappointed. The Italian cold cuts plate was generous and tasty. The pasta spot on,... More

This is a small restaurant by the Port du Peche in town, so make sure to snag a reservation in advance. The owners are very friendly and patient but speak little English so brush up on French terms before visiting. Small menu, but everything is excellent. Don't sleep on the house made burrata and charcuterie plate.

I. Pates lives up to its name, at least on the night we visited: it serves only pasta, and really only two type of pasta, cannelloni and ravioli. If you are looking for a bolognese over spaghetti (or any other pasta dish), don't bother with a visit. But if your enjoy ravioli and cannelloni, you will not be disappointed; the... More
