We found this Italian restaurant by surprise as we were planning to go to another restaurant. It is kind of hidden in an alley. The restaurant is very nice decorated and has table linen service on the tables. The food was fantastic and they offered nice daily specials. The service was very pleasant and attentive. We are going back before... More

Have been coming here for the last four years. Absolute faultless. I'm not easy to please but there is always something on the menu and specials board that suits my taste. If you are anywhere in the area please book. You will not be disappointed. Great family atmosphere and always welcoming.

Went here in the second night of our stay in Jacaranda Villa The food was nice, the service was slow. 5 adults and a child. We all had bread, cheese and fish paste and a main course. We had beer,wine, juice/water Bill came to €135, which we thought was expensive for pizza and pasta
