JAMES BEARD AWARD WINNING CHEF MICHAEL SCHWARTZ BRINGS HONEST ITALIAN FOOD FEATURING FRESH INGREDIENTS FROM THE HEARTH AND THE SIMPLICITY OF HANDMADE ARTISANAL BREADS AND PASTA TO FI’LIA.
A meal begins with a crusty loaf, presented with olive oil and oregano snipped at the table. Rustic pizzas from the wood oven highlight beautiful produce in season in special combinations. Caesar salad is tossed tableside in a shower of shaved parmigiano from a roaming cart, with the smell of toasted garlic croutons reminding you of how satisfying and memorable the classics can be.

Cocktails are refreshingly uncomplicated – less about complex recipes and technique, and more about how unpretentiously perfect a spritz is on a July or December afternoon. A focused wine list celebrating Italian regional varietals and American wines with an old world sensibility.

Excellent! The corn agnolotti with lobster was SO GOOD, one of the best pasta dishes I’ve ever had! The octopus was also very good. Highly recommended!

Table side Caesar salad was amazing But would have been better if Italian music was being played since it’s an Italian restaurant

Everything is way overpriced at this resort and especially the restaurants. Fi’ Lia is no exception but if the food was exceptionally good I would say “Wow that was worth it”. Worst meatballs I have ever eaten.. they were really over seasoned bread balls really bad stay away. And cacio Pepe was meh. Order a pizza from an off site restaurant and have it delivered you will be much happier.

Had reservations obviously but hostess wouldn’t seat us outside which is most of the restaurant because of another party that was coming (never did) and tried to seat us at inside area. There were probably 9 people at the restaurant when we got there so this was incredibly frustrating. Ended up eating at bar.

We were seated late, slow wait staff and service in general. The food wasn't particularly tasty considering the price point and finally when we were ready to leave they were exceptionally rude about splitting the check.

This was our first time dining at this restaurant. Even though we felt rushed (in and out in less than 40 minutes), the food was so good that we went back the next night. Our meal was a little more leisurely. The bread and olive oil with fresh oregano served at each table is outstanding. The fried calamari appetizer worth having and sharing because of the large portion size. The pastas and pizza are authentic Italian and very delicious. Staff very friendly and courteous.

We had our 50 th anniversary dinner with you. The pasta dish was just terrible as the pasta was chewy and the sauce was bland. My wife’s shrimp was fine.

The experience was ok but there was nothing special that would set this restaurant apart. The setting was somewhat sterile and the outdoor seating uncomfortable. The staff, however, were friendly and accommodating. The meals were mediocre except for the mushroom pasta which was amazing. I was sorry I had not ordered that.

Vacation. I m glad I found this place here, I would say it’s the best one on the Bahamar premises. Delicious bread, calamari, pizza, salads, eggplant spread but I think that’s all we had. Didn’t have dessert. Staff is attentive. Both times we sat on the patio, I liked it better than indoors. But then again when the weather is perfect and you re on vacation why sit indoors.

Service was just plain awful. 4 of us at dinner--- 1 got served main course and 2 other main courses came out 20 minutes later--- last one 20 minutes after that. Claimed there was a 'problem' with the last main course. While the food was quite good, due to the service this was an entirely unacceptable eating experience based on the service

The outdoor seating is charming but sitting on a couch is very uncomfortable. The hostess could have been nicer. The menu is interesting and the food is tasty. I though my "roasted broccoli" was basically raw and un-edible but the staff did not seem to care. It is very expensive as are all the restaurants at the Baha Mar.

We ate at your restaurant in the Bahamas but the service was slow and they brought the dinners out at different times so we did not eat together

They charged 5 dollars for hot water

The manager was no help

I felt bad because he ruined a great dinner and great food

Not our favorite. Overpriced for what you receive. No presentation with food. One person in our party received their food 15 minutes after the first three. Wine pour is maybe 3 oz for $17

Italian restaurants should have amazing red sauce, the red sauce has no flavor. Tasted like tomatoes out of a can. The steak was quite tasty. Branzino is also very good. Service is spotty.

I put in our reservation online that we were celebrating an Anniversary(29).The people at check in were less than nice. No one asked us if we were celebrating an occasion. All of our other restaurants did ask us. Table was small and in the middle of chaos. Server was ok. Ambiance was awful. Food was not good. The Commonwealth was much better!!!

Came here for lunch and had such a great time that we made reservations for dinner that night. For lunch we had the caprese salad and the spicy pepperoni pizza. All were very good (needed a bit of salt and pepper flakes). The pepper flakes are incredible, so fresh and flavorful. The house made ciabatta bread they brought with lunch was delicious. Unfortunately, it wasn’t as good for dinner. The OO they offer is also very nice.

Because all the reviews raced about the table made Caesar’s salad, we ordered it. I live in nyc so perhaps my palate is biased, but the salad itself was nothing special. It was tasty, and what you would expect from a Caesar’s. The puttanesca pizza was burned, so we had to send it back but the waitress was very nice about it and offered a new one.

Service for lunch and dinner both were great. Very nice staff and we did not feel rushed. I would come back.
