Perfect - Once again

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

Anyway the food was really nice,... More

A great little restaurant offering wholesome Italian food - from pizzas and pastas to beautifully cooked and served fish and meat dishes. The staff are always so friendly and so enthusiastic about the food they serve. There is a charming courtyard where you can eat 'al fresco' on warmer evenings - but a large interior restaurant is also available Can... More

Though the pasta and pizze were nice we took alway the daily specials. Sometimes live music - then you should make a reservation. Friendly owner, Signore Bucciero, invited us every time for a...
