We were staying at the Taumeasina Resort and were so relieved to get out of there and find this gem within walking distance! Excellent hospitality, food, price and vibe I highly recommend this restaurant

Anyone staying at Taumesina Island Resort should take the five minute stroll to eat here, fantastic food, great service, lovely staff and very good value for money. The owners Losa and William are very friendly and fantastic hosts. Things are tough for the hospitality industry...in Samoa at the moment so eat here and help things along for them as you will not be dissapointed! Greg and Isabella BrisbaneMore

Me and my husband were stopping at the Taumeasina resort and advised by another guest to walk down the road into the village and visit this restaurant, and boy are we glad we did. Unfortunately this was our 3rd from last night and suffice to...say we visited this hidden gem 3 nights on the trot. The first night had a tuna pasta and my husband the chicken parmigiana, both of which were absolutely lovely but we noticed someone else eating a curry sat in a pineapple, the waitress confirmed that was the Thai chicken and pineapple curry. So that was it, we had to return the following night to try this amazing looking dish and I can confirm that it tasted as good as it looked. Then on the 3rd night we both had the steaks, which are New Zealand steaks and very nice. We had a long chat to the very friendly owners, a lovely couple and very passionate about their beautiful restaurant.More

William and Losa place is like going to a family home for dinner. Pastas are authentic and fresh. Oka was good. (This coming from one who is very fussy about the fish she eats)the views from the dinner table is awesome. Been here three times...while in Apia. Price is reasonable.More

My wife and I enjoyed a very good lunch and conversation with the Sicilian-Samoan husband-wife team at Taumeasina Restaurant, which is located just outside the large Taumeasina Island Resort. We opted to order part Samoan and part pasta plates. While all were quite good, I’d...still emphasize the pasta, because you can find good local food in several places for a reasonable price, but pasta done right is a rarity in Samoa.More

This restaurant is a gem. Along the road from the Taumeasina resort - but not part of the resort. The owners Losa and William are very friendly and passionate about hospitality. Losa is from Taumeasina so this is truly a locally owned place. Her husband...William is Italian and the food is delicious! The pasta is great but also try to local palusami and crab entree.More

Fantastic Italian & Samoan food, fresh local seafood. If it’s not local it’s not on the menu. We ate here 3 times while on Holiday and took our friends there as well. They were more than happy to accommodate the vegetarian with us as the...pasta is cooked to order. Losa truly is a fantastic hostess, great local knowledge, we had her join us and asked about local attractions & things to do.
