Slightly out of the way, but well worth the trouble

We were the only people here on a Monday evening. Despite this it was a great and memorable meal of a antipasta and two primo. Very much fish focused and well presented and cooked. We loved it and found our hosts really friendly and doing everything they could to make the meal enjoyable. We would... read more

My wife and I made a reservation at Trimalcione for dinner at 8 p.m. We arrived and were warmly welcomed and seated in a covered, outdoor courtyard. I noted that we were the... More

I visited the restaurant with my husband twice in January 2015. He does not normally choose fish dishes, in fact I can't remember the last time he had one before dining in this restaurant. We both found everything about the place, exceptional. Both the owner and the charming waitress were extremely helpful and the food wonderful. So much so that... More

My friend and I were told about this little place off the beaten track. Having found it we were not disappointed. If you love fish and seafood then this is the place to go. Everything is so very fresh and the flavours are amazing, some of the combinations you would never think to put together. The atmosphere is cosy and... More

I was hoping for something special and we were not disappointed. The location, although difficult to find, is superb and the food was excellent. We had at least 7 or 8 courses which included just about every type of sea food you can think of.if you are looking for something truly special then this is it. A big thank you... More
