Read the reviews on tripadvisor and as my hotel is just opposite the restaurant, decided to Try it out. Didn't fail to disappoint. I ordered a spegatti dish and my husband had the risotto. Portions were super big and We thought we would not be able to finish it but it was so good that though we were pretty full... More

We came across this place after restaurants in the adjacent market were closed. It's a small place with a cafe feel and is clearly popular with locals. We each had a pasta dish which was delicious and unbelievably cheap for the area (around 5-7 euros). We returned there the following day and weren't disappointed. Some family and friends of the...

We stopped in here because my son was so hungry. He just let the way. The first thing I noticed (besides how small it was) was that the chefs were cooking the food right as we walked in to the right. There was a small bar there where you could eat and tables set close together. The menu was in... More

No pretension here. Straightforward home-style Italian cooking. The mushroom risotto was fabulous and the Chicken primavera, with mozzarella and tomato and just the lightest touch of lemon, was a hit. Get several dishes and pass them around just as you would at home. That we were the only tourists in the restaurant says it all.

We went to this restaurant for dinner based off of other reviews and I liked it overall. We were seated immediately and my first impression was that it was very charming. I liked that you can see the chefs cooking. There weren't very many people in there but it started to fill up as we were finishing our meal. I... More

Small restaurant with open kitchen. Staff perhaps the owner/chef & a helper. Ordered the Seafood Pasta & when it came out it smelt so aromatic... Wafting of white wine perhaps used in cooking. Was very tasty & seasoned perfectly with well cooked, good amount of seafood. Also ordered the mushroom risotto but that was average, not as flavoursome. Seems like... More
