The waiter was very rushed because of the load of visitors. My risotto was ok but nothing special. what irritated me was that it was decorated with... More

During my holiday I found the offerings from the various restaurants and pizzerias to be somewhat predictable, however when I read through the... More

Not many non-seafood options, long wait between courses, but otherwise, great food and fab location. Reserve ahead and ask for a outside table if possible.

Amazing food and abundant portions. We ordered some house wine and it was very good too. The only remark, the atmosphere is a bit drab. A pity we didn't go back a second time.

Me and my wife had a wonderful dinner at La Tavernetta. The personal is really nice, and specially the restaurant chief. Big and really good meals for a good price. Often fully booked, so make you booking to enjoy a great meal!

The food was exceptional, my daughter was in well, they cooked a special dish for her and could not have been more helpful. Even an old school lemon drink was made. Can't recommend enough!!!

Ate here recently - thought I had booked online but there was a problem with their system. Thought we would be unlucky but the owner was very charming and apologetic and seated us immediately even though the place was full to bursting. Had great food - lovely vegetarian antipasti, spaghetti with clams cockles and mussels and then delicious cannolo. My... More
