We stay in Maratea for few days of seaside and relax and we have been recommended this restaurant by some friends.. we ended to go there twice in 3 days. The food is very good and the quality of ingredients genuine and tasty. The choice of courses is good and no matter if you like meat or fish you will... More

Followed lonely planets recommendation on this one, and it was not wrong. Pretty little place with just a few tables. Good Italian food, we had different pastas and got the waiter to recommend the wine.Good choice. I can't help thinking that Italian restaurants could gain something when it comes to atmosphere just by dimming down the bright lights and lighting... More

This is a small, charming restaurant which delivers some really excellent dishes. Service was also excellent; our lovely waitress (who has studied to be a translator and speaks fine English), was always available, but never hovering. We started to order from the menu when the waitress explained that there were several seafood items that they didn't have that evening...that they... More

This restaurant was recommended by two of the guests at our hotel as the place to eat in Maratea. The atmosphere and ambience was non-existant. The food was poor to ordinary and one plate had to be sent back as it was not cooked through. The speciality of the day was ordinary, small portions and very overpriced. Told the owner... More

We enjoyed our meal here and would definitely recommend it. The calamari was great: huge pieces of octopus in a tasty tomato sauce. Also a nice house wine.

Starter went overkill on the lemon. I like lemon, but omg, couldn't eat it. This place is a lemon. Asked for large portion of pasta, I offered to pay extra. But only available in standard sizes. The waitress got distracted on middle of conversation and left to attend to something. So rude. Forgot to bring wine. Sea bass main was... More

We come to Italy every year for several weeks and have eaten hundreds of excellent meals all over the country. This was a shocking disappointment. The place looked good - off the main street and cosy. The starter was awful - some mozzarella on toasted bread with an anchovy. The bread was largely inedible - certainly nothing like the crostini...

The worst meal we had in Maratea and its environs. Tasteless, slimy mush describes all three courses although we refused to pay for the third (grilled seafood). The waitress has good English but is deluded since she seems to think the cooking is good. The waiter, a young officious boy in a cummerbund, was polite other than his regular moist... More
