Thank you to the lovely staff at Cantine Bernadini! We had a beautiful Gluten free meal and glass of wine for an exceptionally good price. Perfect place for coeliacs, vegans and vegetarians with a great range of options. We will be going back!

We shared a cheese sharing platter as a starter with honey. The flavours were amazing and the best we had experienced in Italy. For mains we both had pasta dishes that were equally good. Prices were very good. The restaurant had a great atmosphere and the service was excellent. We were very pleased with our choice and would recommend.

When it was time for us to leave the owner took pity on us and lent us an umbrella to walk back to the hotel with. A simple... More

A truly great gem of a restaurant. Perhaps we were lucky (the specials of the day included home made pasta and black truffle- divine. The weather was perfect.

We stumbled across this little gem. Each course was a delicious surprise from the large creamy mozzarella ball, the fresh red mullet to the tasty extra virgin olive oil and the coffee. Relaxing atmosphere and attentive service. Would definitely recommend a visit.
