A lovely Italian restaurant serving very good food. Staff were very friendly. Food was good and had some choices different from the usual menus. I had the veal which was really good.

We were staying at The Residence so this was really close. It is part of the Porto Mare hotel but for an "in-house" restaurant the prices are very reasonable. The Prestige Gold discount makes it even more favourable. Both the food (scrummy homemade pasta) and atmosphere are excellent - and it's open on a Monday evening. Good quality wines and... More

If staying at the Porto Mare hotel, this Italian is very convenient choice for dinner or for lunch. Nice surroundings near the ocean and the ocean promenade. Located at the bottom of the hill, the hotel residents are able to use the reception of the Porto Mare Resident hotel, which works for all ages and all conditions. Pizza for lunch... More

We were taken by some friends and were very pleased with the food and service. Good value. My friend has tried many calzeonis and this was declared one of the best.

Really many had told to eat here because of food. We were hungry for Italian food and some really good pasta, but we were really disappointed. Our meals didnt have any taste at all. tasted more like something you can grap from buffee table. And prices were quite high compared to quality.

We love 'going downstairs' from the Resience & eating in our 'own restaurant'...the friendliness & the atmosphere is so warm that you enjoy being there as well as enjoying the great selection of meals & lovely house wine...you are guaranteed to have an enjoyable evening there and come away after a lovely meal.

Great for pizzas and the desserts particularly chocolate brownie are very good. Not so keen on the steak dish. The service and staff are brilliant.

We tried this restaurant as its part of the restaurants at Eden Mar and Porto Mar. The service is very good and welcoming. The food is lovely, we visited 3 times, so it's one of our favourites, and very close to our hotel, you can walk through the corridors of Eden Mar and Porto Mar, so if it rains you... More
