Tortellini Sophia Loren is amazing. I had it about 5years ago on my last visit and this time it exceeded my memory. Fresh fish from the blackboard amazing too.

Three of us dropped in and we're lucky enough to get a table. Comfortable rustic Italian style atmosphere. Attentive waiting staff, good service, timed very well, nice gaps (not too long!) between courses,for wine and conversation. The food was excellent, and fairly priced. The main course was the star, Scallops with a crisp, tasty breadcrumb topping, served with grilled giant... More

We have eaten in this restaurant many times over the years, either as a couple, with friends or with our children. The food is always good and the staff are very welcoming and extremely friendly. It was a relaxed atmosphere and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.

I enjoyed an excellent seafood risotto and a lovely chat with the chef afterwards. The rice was perfectly 'al dente' and the dish absolutely packed full of fish. It was served at our table in a copper pan, which looked wonderful. I can not convey the smell and taste of that dish in words and therefore suggest that you try... More

The restaurant was busy on a Saturday evening but Nico had no problem finding us a table despite us not booking. As we are regulars he asked us if we would be happy to let him chose for us. We readily agreed and what a wise decision it proved to be. For starters we were given an Italian tapas/ meze... More

Went there for dinner last night after a drink at The Custom house bar. Set on the harbour front this restaurant serves good Italian food. Simple tasty, we had the Avacardo and prawns which were very fresh and the veal which was excellent . The wines are mostly Italian and a little dissapointing .

Had been a while since we last visited and wondered why we waited so long. The food had an authentic home cooked feel about it and the service and welcome was second to none.

Arrived Saturday night during the boat show, the restaurants we'd researched on TripAdvisor were either full or the menu was not what we wanted. Went down to the quayside and there was Da Vincis, a pearl in a plethora of rather awful shabby pubs with terrible reviews for food. The very friendly Italian staff were able to find us a... More
