Excellent Organic Meal

We had a really wonderful lunch at Oniga. They have many options on the menu that are slow food and many organic dishes. Even the olive oil they serve is organic. We had the organic ragu with spaghetti. It was absolutely delicious. They also recommended a really nice glass of wine. We would... read more

While serving traditional dishes, his is one of those small places trying to put a modern, fancy twist to it. Anyway, the food is good and well prepared. Valid selection of traditional dishes. The service is good, the staff is courteous. Prices are moderate, not the cheapest place, but affordable.

This small restaurant off the beaten tracks offers an authentic, excellent regional cuisine (which is mostly fish and seafood) with regional, organic products. They have only a short menu - usually a good sign - and a small selection of very good wines from Northeastern Italy. I tried one evening the grilled octopus (which was perfectly cooked) and a great... More

We ate here two nights because of the food and service. Portions large, and the restaurant always busy.

This restaurant looks lovely, rustic, warm lighting, reviews good so we booked for dinner after a day of walking, were so tired we wanted to eat on our doorstep. It was full, they had no space so asked us to come back in an hour which we were happy to do as we thought we were in for a treat.... More

My husband and I visited this restaurant for dinner after a recommendation from the couple we were staying with. The ambiance of the restaurant is perfect - warm and romantic, and the food is amazing! I had the salmon burger and my husband had the lasagna dish - both were SO GOOD! The prices are fair and the house wine... More

We were looking for another restaurant which was unfortunately closed at that time. Oniga is close and recommended by lonely planet so we decided to give it a try. At the beginning things looked good: warm welcoming and nice atmosphere. But all three dishes were too salty which made us disappointed. Waitress was not helpful as well. I can understand... More

Popular amongst locals and tourists alike, easy to navigate menus, excellent value wines by the carafe. The portion sizes are very generous, perhaps too much so! My starter of fried baby shrimp and polenta , very tasty and simply prepared. Black ink spaghetti was accompanied by a sauce of octopus, calamari, tomatoes and olives, which sounds like it shouldn't work,... More
