OUTSTANDING from the Homemade Spinach Ravioli with Grilled Shrimp to the delicious deserts everything we tried was perfect. The service combined with the view (especially the sunset) made for the perfect evening out for my wife and I and will be back with the entire family.

Wonderful menu selection and great kids menu. We ate at both Casanova by the sea and le Vele and liked them both. We tried one pizza while we were there and loved it! We ordered a variety of foods and loved everything. We’ll go back for a nice dinner and also for pizza.

This second floor restaurant with a deck overlooking the bay (and small parking lot) has excellent food. We had a pizza as an app and it was excellent (took most of it in a box). The selection of food has something for everyone from lamb to local fish to lobster. I highly recommend this place because of the food and views. The waiter was a little slow coming around at first but we just kept making him stop whenever he walked near...

This modestly decorated restaurant hangs over a parking lot facing a beautiful bay full of cruise ships. But it goes from zero to 60 in 10 seconds. Also very accommodating. We went with a vegan and they came out with a vegan treat almost as soon as we seated. The crust of the vegan pizza was superb, as was the topping. While dishes were not all works of visual art, the skill of creating impressive dishes with locally sourced materials should be awarded top awards by any experienced food critic. We were a party of 8 and could not resist comparing the potato with the breadfruit gnocci, heaveny pillows floating off the dish....and ate all 9 brilliant main courses. The quality of the wine list seems to be more a matter of luck than familiarity but we did find a couple of well-priced good wines, red and white. We are foodies and this was probably our best meal on 7 Mile Beach.

Wow... Great service, fabulous food and a wonderfully tight wine list would make this a super spot anywhere. The seaside venue puts it over the top, watching the sun set and the cruise ships head out. Amazing specials! Don’t miss this gem...

This authentic Italian restaurant was outstanding. The pizza was as good as I have had in Rome and the owner was very hospitable. Outside dining overlooks the ocean and was a definite must.

This was our first visit to Le Vele but we will be making it a staple of future visits to Grand Cayman. Excellent Italian dishes with probably the best pizza on the Island. Outside seating has a great view of Georgetown. All in all a terrific place to take the family.

Dined here on a Thursday night over the Holidays. Great view and would be a great spot for a sunset dinner if the clouds cooperate (they didn’t). THE GOOD: the fritto misto della casa appetizer, my risotto Le Vele (the tomato risotto was outstanding, the pisto risotto was very good, and the champagne risotto was good), and the key lime mousse (special not on menu). THE MEDIOCRE: her penne mare e monti (weird mustard taste pervasive in both the sauce and meat) and the service (at times personable and attentive but others absent and a little off). THE BAD: N/A

Great ambiance, over looking the ocean. Staff was great, very hospitable. The food was just okay, I had better Italian on the island. Maybe it was just what we ordered - the lamb was undercooked and the seafood pasta sauce was a bit too watery.

The staff is very friendly and makes an extra effort to satisfy guests. It was a little chilly inside but staff adjusted the temperature when asked to do so. The selection of food was excellent. If the restaurant was downstairs you might be busier so, advertise that there is an elevator.

Fantastic food, impeccable service and spectacular view! We just had dinner there with our 8 year old and 13 year old who had absolutely delicious authentic Italian pizza. My husband and i tried the sea bass and a couple of sea food dishes which were full of flavor and masterfully prepared. Our waiter was wonderful and the whole family enjoyed the experience!
