Good pizza

Would recommend this pizzeria. Stunning views of the coast with a relaxed atmosphere. If your visiting for a few days definitely worth a trip to granduca.

We were a little underdressed for this fancy restaurant but they let us in anyway! Fantastic views, great service, food and wine!

We visited 3 times this week, twice for dinner and once for lunch. Great views over bay and good food selection especially for fish and pizza. Our Grown up children said these were the best pizzas they had ever eaten! Staff generally attentive though perhaps a bit brusque on occasion. Best to book a table at the front of the... More

Met up with two friends at Granduca and really enjoyed the ambience and scenery. On a busy night, we happened to get there early and the moved us up the list to the lone empty table. Great view of the water from any seat in the house. I am a huge Tagliatelle fan and their Tagliatelle Bolognese was great! For... More

We experienced a lovely meal here, having just dropped in on the off chance. We managed to get a front row table with view out over the bay. The menu was expansive and easy to understand, with lovely accompanying wines. Very busy the evening we were there, but service didn't suffer. Would recommend!

If you are looking for a wonderful view with dry food, tiny pasta portions and tuna steak drenched in balsamic dressing...look no further. 1/5

Dress up if you're going to this place. The food is delicious - but slightly overshadowed by all the waiters trying to be more supercilious than the diners. This is definitely a place to go if you're wanting a special meal in pretty surroundings. Just try not to laugh at the arrogance of the head waiter...

Go elsewhere for food. We had reservations and were 30 minutes late so could not sit on the patio (that's fair, our fault). However, the staff was not as knowledgable or organized as expected. That was fine we were just excited to try the food. The food was bland and flavorless. There are a few other restaurants with the same... More
