We wanted a local speciality and went for the pasta with sardines.The waiter was extremely helpful and warned us that the sardines had been preserved in salt. We chose it anyway and found it so salty as to be almost inedible. The waiter offered to change it but since we'd ordered it after he'd told us about it we didn't... More

We have eaten here before at lunchtime and the experience was good. On that basis we booked a table for a Saturday evening. The table we got was at the top of the stairs and obviously not one specifically kept for us. During the meal (which was good) drunken people were queueing in the stairwell waiting for a table and...

The atmosphere is charming, yet elegant. Service is friendly and efficient. The food is what kept us coming back. My favorite entrees were the seafood bean soup, seafood spaghetti and the ravioli with a pistachio sauce. All three were exceptional. You do not want to miss out, so make a reservation and enjoy.

My wife, daughter and I enjoyed a wonderful dinner this evening at Al Gondoliere. From our Romeo and Juliet terrace position overlooking a quiet square we were thrilled with the service provided by Arsenio the owner along with his wife and daughters. The polenta mushroom and Gorgonzola starter was perfect. The spaghetti with sea food, spinach gnocchi and grilled squid... More

This is Italian dining at its best. A small restaurant with personal, professional service and outstanding food. I highly recommend the shrimp & zucchini gnocchi, the grilled orate, finished by the semifreddo. The setting is upscale, but casual.
