Tucked away among a clutter of restaurants this was recommended by the hotel. The layout is super but unfortunately it was too windy to sit outside, inside was fine as was the service and drinks.

After our first meal here, we returned twice more, and have not been disappointed! The swordfish rolls in the local sauce tonight was so tasty, and there was plenty of it! The service is friendly, and the staff are all helpful! Highly recommended!

Just sampled the delights of this restaurant. What a find. The service was very good, the food even better...try the Sicilian plate as a sharing starter....it doesn't look much from the outside, just small tables, but well worth it. Will go back again hopefully.

The anti-pastis were very good. The risotto was good but the spagetti not good. The service is good. The quantities very generous.

Cozy small restaurant, u cld share the sicilian plate wit ur partner, very delicious. We continued with superb fresh tuna pasta. Exellent espresso finalized our meal. Patron's cute 9 (?) year old son assisted with serving. Some musicians from street popped in and we heard lovely serenades. Friendly and fast service. A place to go.

The food was excellent, cooked by the owners wife, The local wine that was recommended was very good, and the service was excellent, with the owners' eleven year old son playing his part also.
