Excellent. Great service.

We got tipped by some local people on this restaurant and it was not a disappointment. We were with two families including 2 small children. as suggested by the locals we ordered the seafood antipasti which were really good and highly recommended. They have apparently also deals with the local museum just one block away. The pasta was also excellent.... More

We went last week with a friend who had visited the place a couple of years ago. Standards definitely slipping. Food still okay but less refined. The fritto misto was overdone and we asked for the pasta al vongole to be spicy which it was not and undercooked as well. We were served by the owner first but later by... More

A very attractive restaurant, with cute photos on the wall of the restaurant and team in the old days. They were almost full on a Tuesday lunch time, which is unusual around here. However, many things were not available which were on the (freshly printed) menu. The wine we selected was not available and the waiter opened an alternative without... More

After three hours of Milan's sights we ended up in the Galleria at the Duomo at lunchtime. Trattoria Al Gatto Rosso, thanks to Sergio, provided an exquisite noonday meal. Osso buco was to die for, and my wife's pasta with tartuffe unforgettable.

Very good experience, since we were there for dinner twice and nothing wrong happened. Quality of fresh fishes is excellent , pastas are as expected. Service is good, could improve a little. Wine list is not extensive, it is advisable to follow the suggestions of the owner and you will not be disappointed. Price is acceptable.

This is really an excellent place in Taranto, in a quiet street near the wonderful archaeological Museum MARTA. We ate there at lunch, in a very hot day, so we had to eat moderatly. As entrées we had baked mussels and sea salad and than a great grilled fish. The fish is the best I had since a very long... More
