Ragazzi Restaurant, Grand Cayman,(meaning 'good buddies' in Italian) is owned and run by good friends Paolo Polloni and Andi Marcher. For years they worked in Europe and then Cayman, building up their ideas and doing their research, always knowing that their dream would be to one day open an exceptionally good Italian restaurant - a place where customers want to return again and again. In the summer of 1999 their dream became a reality and Ragazzi Ristorante and Pizzeria was opened.
With it's vibrant colours, authentic wood burning pizza oven and central location, it has become a meeting point for family and friends, and repeat customers many times over. Ask a local and they will say the food at Ragazzi is exceptional and consistently good. The wine list has won the Wine Spectator Award for Excellence for the last four years and wine aficionados love the range and reasonable prices. The service is warm and efficient and because of their convenient opening hours- 11:30am to 11pm, seven days a week, including Sunday lunch- you can drop in and eat no matter what time you are hungry. For anyone that is eating alone, a nice thing to do is come and eat at the bar - even if it is for an appetizer or a late night snack. The bar was designed and built in Italy especially for Ragazzi.
Ragazzi in the Cayman Islands is very popular for parties, whether small or large, especially for birthdays and Christmas parties. The place has a fun atmosphere, is quite loud when full - which it invariably is, and is considered reasonably priced. Every day they have wonderful and tempting specials - two appetizers, four main courses, one pizza and one pasta special. We hope you enjoy it as much as we have.
Hours:11.30am-11pm 7 days a week Including Sunday Lunch

With uninterrupted, breathtaking views of the beach and the Caribbean Sea, Luca's location on Seven Mile Beach is unrivaled. The brainchild of the highly successful team that brought us Ragazzi - one of the Island's busiest and most popular eateries for the last nine years. Andi Marcher and Paolo Polloni, owners and business partners, describe the exquisite menu as "Italian-based, fused with international flavors". It has been fine tuned to perfection by their young and creative chef, Federico Destro from Venice, formerly head chef at Ragazzi and the results are amazing and speak for themselves. Everything is made fresh daily in Luca's kitchens, from breads to pastas to desserts. Federico's culinary philosophy is pure and simple: Source the best quality, freshest ingredients possible and don't mess with them. Freshness of product and simplicity of presentation pretty well sum it up. Daily specials highlight the team's ongoing creativity.
Sleek and stylish, Luca oozes smart sophistication. The team's attention to detail is apparent everywhere; from the marble floors to the Venetian hand-blown glass lights. Five Italian craftsmen were imported from Europe and spent six weeks installing the wooden paneling and other finishing touches, including the leather upholstered banquettes. The cutlery and china is Villeroy & Boch. Taking pride of place along the north wall of the high ceilinged room is Luca's fabulous glass encased wine "cellar", holding several thousand bottles, representing a choice of over 350 different varieties.
Managed by this dynamic team, Andi and Paolo's attention to detail is meticulous and they provide warming wraps on chilly nights, reading glasses to those that have left theirs at home, and recommendations on wine and food if you need direction. We hope you enjoy Luca as much as much as we have.

Prime in Grand Cayman is not your ordinary steak house; it is a new and exciting dining experience that is based on the Brazilian art of dining. This unique concept originates from the Southern Region of Brazil, called the Rio Grande de Sul, and South American cowboys, known as Gauchos, prepared these feasts for their families on the open prairies. Prime brings you this same authentic taste from Brazil, but mixes it with a dash of Caribbean charm.
This recently opened restaurant has had no expense spared in creating a sumptuous atmosphere where these Gauchos, or carvers, frequently approach your table to serve you delicious meats straight from the Brazilian Churrascaria. This is another dining experience brought to you by Markus Mueri and Neil Bryington, bringing another elegant, fun and original dining concept to Cayman.
The centre-piece of the restaurant is an impressive appetizer buffet, created with Italian granite over two levels, that will impress the most die-hard of vegetarians. Meanwhile the tiled dining rooms feature cosy wooden furnishings and offer unrestricted views of the Brazilian rotisserie.
To really get the most from this restaurant, you should order a Caipirinha, which is Brazil's national cocktail and is a mash of cachaca (fermented sugar cane juice), sugar and lime. This should set you up nicely to enjoy a bottle of red wine, the perfect way to dine at Prime. The international wine selection features a wide variety of great wines from South America which are designed to complement the food perfectly.
Prime really is a meat lover's dream as they operate a great system for constantly bringing more rotisserie meats directly to your table and when you are full you turn your card to red to indicate you just can't eat any more!
Markus and Neil are very proud to bring this unique dining experience to Cayman and invite you to enjoy their Brazilian Churrascaria with a dash of Caribbean charm.
Lunch: Friday and Saturday 11.30am-2.30pm
Dinner: Daily 5.30pm until Closing

One phrase, "A Rare Steakhouse, Very Well Done," describes this unique restaurant.

In essence, you create your own magnificent meal. The impressive line-up of Certified Angus Beef steaks are all hand cut, aged 28 days, and grilled to your specifications. If you fancy a change from steak, they also offer delicious chicken dishes, pork chops, pasta dishes, lamb, seafood, vegetarian dishes and an extensive wine list.
