My wife and I both got the pesto lasagne and potato octopus for starters. The octopus salad was amazing, so many different flavours and it worked really well. The lasagne was ok, nothing to write home about but it was still good. A pretty cheap honest meal

After being in Europe for almost three weeks now and having eaton great food, this was astonishingly amazing. The caprese was some of the best we have ever had! I had the stuffed mussels which were astounding. Perfectly done and the red veggie sauce on top was unreal. The best dish served of the night was what my mom ordered:... More

We went to this restaurant with mixed feelings after reading the reviews. Our dinner was delicious. We shared a starter of octopus and potatoes which was tender and amazing. I ordered the grilled swordfish, which was a large portion. My husband had the stuffed mussels, unusual and very tasty. We ordered a carafe of the house white, with no problem.... More

The swordfish was nice. my husband thought he'd try the 'breaded chicken'. A small piece of processed chicken arrived with a few French fries and one small lettuce leaf. Definitely not value for money. We were with friends and wanted to order a carafe of house wines, but were told it wasn't possible and that we could only order bottled... More

Very delicious seafood spaghetti. We had the potato and octopus antipasti and the octopus was so tender. Then we ordered the seafood spaghetti for 2 and shared it. My husband and i each got a langostino and 2 shrimp as well as a handful of oysters. The pasta and sauce were cooked just right. There was definitely a lot of... More

We had dinner here on a local recommendation. This restaurant had swordfish made 6 different ways, and my wife and I had two of them. They were totally different dishes with the same fish. Very delicious and well presented.

Enjoyed a good meal and a respectable house wine. The staff seemed inattentive, and kept removing things from the table that we were still using? We felt really rushed- which is not normal for Italy and took away from the experience.

I don't really expect much from service, and I almost never review on it, but man alive the waiter was rude. Besides that, the food just wasn't that great. Comparing the pesto with trofie from Sandro vs. Gianni Franzi (the only other place I had it), it's not even close. Given all the great food we had over two weeks... More

food was OK, nothing great but the portions were very tiny for the price. rude owners & staff. denied us tap water so we had to buy mineral water even if we did not need it. another pair of travelers was asked to go elsewhere for "just coffee" as they only had place for people who wanted to eat food,...
