Little hidden gem

The staff were so pleasant. The food was excellent. Dessert was to die for. Very cheap especially for the amount of mmms we were doing while eating. The inside is a beautiful stone walled building with an authentic arch. Couldn't rate it higher.

The antipasti and primi were good. Unfortunately, the secondi was below average. The meat was overcooked. The staff is friendly and very nice ambiance.

Had fantastic spaghetti with sea urchin, a good steak and 2 risottos plus desert for under e60 for four. The place isnt flash but food perfectly cooked. No pressure to eat a full menu which was most appreciated.

The owner and his son were very attentive and kind, They even phone the owner of the B&B we were staying at whom we could not contact ...he turned out to be a good friend of theirs, so... More

I found this place (finally) by going off via Roma at plaza domenico, then turning right -- the restaurant is on the left. It is also possible to go down the steps at Sant'Antonio Abate and then turning left. In any case, I had three courses -- appetiser, pasta, and meat -- plus wine and water for 25 Euros. Everything...

It was around 2pm, we were the only ones there with it being siesta time. The food was very good, loved the pasta. It was a great experience all around, the waiter was helpful and I... More

This is the worst meal we had in Italy (ever), really the place was dirty, the waiter was rude, the wine watered and the food awful. I had a Funghi porcini Rissoto, that was nothing but badly boiled rice and soggy mushrooms, and some very dry and thin piece of meet that tasted like cardboard. I was really pissed, because... More

This little ristorante is well worth the trip. Our group of four walked there from the port area and it took about 20 mins. We all enjoyed our food which was brought out piping hot. The service was friendly and helpful. We had the pasta of the day, I type of macaroni and cheese and fried patata anti pasta. Delicious!... More
