Fantastic local experience

We decided not to sit at the touristic harbour but go inwards to have a more local experience, and we did! Sitting amongst Italians and eating delicious local food prepared with fresh ingredients and a lonely owner. The pizza was really good and the beef was super tasty. Something we would... read more

Just skip all the pricey restaurants along the waterfront and head for Dal Baffo if you're interested in experiencing what it is like to dine as the locals do. Despite it being a busy Saturday evening, we had excellent service - prompt and friendly. Although pizza seems to be the most popular menu item among the locals at Dal Boffo,... More

We decided not to sit at the touristic harbour but go inwards to have a more local experience, and we did! Sitting amongst Italians and eating delicious local food prepared with fresh ingredients and a lonely owner. The pizza was really good and the beef was super tasty. Something we would definitely recommend to anyone who wants a local experience!

We had a super meal of two pizzas, bottle of wine, water, two desserts and a coffee. The staff were very friendly and the service extremely efficient. A very popular family restaurant with inside and outside dining. Considering the heavy downpour the staff coped admirably with serving outside and trying to keep the food dry en route. The bill was... More

It had great pizzas and pasta and friendly service. The staff spoke English and gave us a couple of suggestions which were great. The house wine was even quite good. There were a couple of big local groups that night but the staff were still very attentive to us

Away from the touristy restaurants located at the port, this restaurant is a favourite spot for locals (according to our hotel receptionist), and I can see why!
