I want to start by saying our server was very nice, but the food was awful. I ordered stuffed ravioli and it tasted like it was from a can. A lot of people in our party ordered the shrimp pasta - the shrimp were whole, just smashed up, so they spent half their dinner picking shell, claws, and even an... More

Got a table on the front deck, and had a really nice dinner. Service was friendly and quick, and the meals were nice. The kids said the pizza and the gnocchi with seafood was great, my steak with pepper al verde was very nice. The special of the day, soft-shell crab with tagliatelle contained pretty much a full small crab,... More

This is by no means one of the best resturants I have been to. There are so many quaint resturants throughout. We sat in the back part of the resturants as there were seven of us. The back part is actually in the back street where we had just sampled wine! I ordered the seafood pasta. It was huge. It... More

This place was a real treat and a real surprise! The steamed mussels as a starter and the sea bass as a main course is what I would recommend however the pasta was also one of the best we ever ate. The house wine was very good. and the desert WOW try the hot chocolate desert,its a wonderful cake/sweet. These... More

We stopped here for lunch on the main thoroughfare in old town. The ambiance was not much to write home about, but the food was good and the waitress was very friendly. The steamed mussels were the best we have had anywhere--very fresh and delicately cooked. Went very well with the local white wine. The green pasta with crab was... More

Our hotelier recommended this place, even called ahead to make sure we (vegetarians) could be accommodated. They had a couple of options, and the food was really flavorful and well presented. The price was about average for this area.

While the service was not the best, the food absolutely made up for it! I started with the steamed mussels which came in a huge portion (definitely shareable) and a perfectly seasoned broth. My wife had the Ligurian Minestrone Soup which she still says is one of the best soups she had ever had. We both had the Trofie Pasta... More

This was without a doubt the best meal I had while in Italy. We shared the steamed mussels; and it's a good thing. We stopped counting after 80. After that came the fish ravioli. It was simply delicious! I know you are supposed to have more than two courses in Italian restaurants; but it was impossible to eat more. Anna... More
