Ate here twice during our week long stay, and unfortunately only found it late in the week. Prices, quality of food and the friendliness of staff were all fantastic. Their menu of the day was a huge meal and each course beautifully prepared. Not to be missed.

We were staying at the Grand Hotel Pianeta just down the road for a family wedding and their restaurant is pretty mediocre. The younger family members had already been to the Piccolo Ranch and came back full of praise and pasta. A bigger group of about twenty went back for our last night and it was very good. The seafood... More

One menu of pizza, ranging from about €5 to the best pizza I've ever had, the Pizza Tucci (all of €10) The base was excellent, but it was... More

Our friends surprised us with a trip to Ristorante Il Piccolo Ranch. We all had pizza made in the wood fired oven. Delicious, with many varieties to choose from. The service is superb, the owner very agreeable and welcoming. Marvelous view. I highly recommend it.

Comida deliciosa. Fizeram o possível e o impossível para nos agradar, quer em relação à qualidade da comida quer em relação à apresentação de pratos típicos e diferentes. As cozinheiras trabalhavam felizes e se desdobraram para nos oferecer o melhor. Adorei. Recomendo! Food is delicious. They made everything to please us, whether in relation to the quality of food and... More
