We were out for a long walk and find ourselves in the middle of nowhere. We called our hotel and asked them to recommend a restaurant where we could have a good meal in a casual environment. They directed us to Anema et Core. What a charming Neapolitan restaurant in an informal garden setting by the river. Pleasant fare in... More

This restaurant is 5 minutes from my apartment and I go there for dinner regularly. I love their cuisine and the pretty space they have outside where you can dine or have lunch in the summer under the trees and next to the Cassarate river, you really feel on holiday. My favourite dishes here are their special pizzas (like the... More

I have visited this place frequently. The food is consistently good, especially the seafood. Inside seating is rather constrained, not much room. But outside is great, in the garden and by the river. It is usually pleasant for lunch all year or dinner outside of winter time. But beware, if you are in a hurry! Service is consistently slow. Be... More

In the warmer season, you can sit in the garden and hear the river run alongside the restaurant. It is a very relaxing atmosphere. I don't enjoy the inside seating as much as it seems cramped to me. The food is usually good, with specials every day. The fish is very good but everything I have had is very good.... More

Been there for the fist time with a friend of mine. My children were there too. Evebody was truly kind and, since we arrived before my friend, they offer straight away, without me asking to prepare something for kids. The service was great. My pasta was extremily good and my children were really please about their pizza. We will be... More

My friends and I were looking for a place to eat before going out to some lounge bar, and many people suggested this place, so we gave it a try. Let me say that the restaurant is pretty small, not more than 15 tables, which I do like. The waitress we had was very kind (even cute!) and she put... More
