We came to this place feeling lucky to have the terrasse.. We were sitting next to a table reserved for 6. We were 2. It took a very long time to have us given the menu, one for the wine, one for the plates. After a while the table of 6 local people arrived. A fat dirty man who looks... More

What a Beautiful view for a lovely meal! We had a great waiter who was very accommodating. We had very nice meals - the langoustine was yummy. Definitely worth booking as it was extremely busy and many were turned away whilst we were dining.

Today we had lunch at A Casarella and now we are all sick. The view is really amazing but it is a crime to serve such a terrible food. The tuna tartare was everything but fresh, the zucchini were sour. Could we add that the bill was extremely high?

My BEST meal in Corsica! I actually wanted to visit another restaurant but ended up here. Absolutely loved the food! The service was non-intrusive but still attentive/good. If we stayed closer to Bastia, I would have definitely gone back... but my husband said the drive was too far. The view on the tiny terrace was lovely and the gentle breeze... More

Lonely Planet did it again. They recommended A Casarella restaurant in Bastia and we had a great meal. We sat outside beneath the tower of the Citadel with a breathtaking view of the sea. The food and service were excellent. The waiters were friendly and efficient. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone spending time in Bastia.

We had dinner, so the evening on the Citadel was great with special atmosphere. In a good weather it is very pleasant to seat outside. Very good local cooking. I enjoyed the "Crabes Farcis", and the "Cochon Noir Carmelise". Nice wine list. Very friendly service. Very good value.

Absolutely fantastic ... I'm on a diet, but there's no way I could respect it that night !!! 'm English, so the cooking of the meat is particularly painful for people abroad, and my future daughter in law, who's pregnant, can't eat red meat ... perfect cooking !!! The ambiance was perfect ... a balmy evening overlooking the sea ...... More

Crabes farcis, then Cochon Noir caramelise, then Le Ginger (with Canistrelli and citron), all absolutely fabulous, especially the Ginger, which I ordered because I noticed the people at the next table enthusing about it. Not cheap, but not ruinous, and definitely worth it. After your meal you can wander out watch the yachts and fishing boats in the old harbour... More

Not feeling inspired by any of the restaurants around the Vieux Port, we ventured up into the Citadel to check out a couple of places recommended by Lonely Planet. We were initially unsure about A Casarella, as for a Thursday night it was not at all busy (despite reviews recommending to make a reservation), so we decided to have a... More
