Ended up here as the restaurant that was recommended to us was closed on Sunday afternoon. Basically fresh catch of the day at slightly higher price than I expected to pay in the fishing village...... but seriously overpriced starters and mains. My friend had grilled fish which was ok but his side of grilled vegetables were nowhere near grilled or... More

Menu is not very diverse. It is very expensive while the food served is not superior to any other normal restaurant. Garnishing is not impressive at all, and the taste and portions are OK, but then again, not something impressive. Service is good. Waiters are friendly and helpful.

We went there for Sunday lunch, at 1.00pm only one type of fresh fish was available! When the waiter came to take the drinks order he was talking to me & left to deal with another table & my order was not even taken yet. As we waited for more than an hour for our food, it was not full... More

Today we had a great lunch experience, its not our first time but I have to admit that under the new management its more welcoming. To update on previous guest comments, we requested a mixed fish platter which it wasn't on menu and we paid Euro22.95, really worth the money paid. Its an affordable outlet really not expensive.

This restaurant served us bad food with green mould on it. We ordered coffee and desserts and the cassatella siciliana had mould on it. The waiter said that by mistake they served the dessert which was meant to be thrown away. I'm pretty sure they knew that it had gone bad and tried to sell it anyway. The restaurant did... More

My first visit to this establishment. I was looking for a nice fresh fish restaurant toenjoy a Sunday lunch. The decor is acceptable. In my opinion the backgroung music is tediuos and for an outlet with 'Italian' connotations I expected the music to be in line with this. The fresh fish selection was, even if a little restricted. Prices are... More

Dear Sir, Thanks for your review regarding our restaurant, it was our pleasure to serve you and would be our pleasure to serve you again. It was an expensive lunch for you, because you chose a Pesce San Pietro nearly weighing 2kgs for two persons. A fish that size usually it is shared between 3 or 4 people. The price... More
