Good seafood

Very good starter of anchovies and chopped tomato bruschetta. Excellent main courses of swordfish and prawns and a very good bottle of house wine. Not so good was the tiramisu which tasted a bit synthetic and why is it when they practically drag you in off the street do they charge €2 each cover... read more

This place is great for families and couples alike. Very friendly attentive service, wonderful antipasti with generous portion of local grilled vegetables. By far the best sea bass of the trip served grilled, whole and deboned right at the table. Good reasonable house red wine and complimentary limoncello to end. Recommend!!

The ambience in the restaurant is one of welcome. Would recommend their specials. Stayed above the restaurant for 7 nights and ate there around 4 times. Prices well within the average for above average food.

Wonderful and extremely attentive staff. The handmade pasta was to die for... Mine came with a mixed bag of seafood that was incredibly fresh. My boyfriend got the plate-sized swordfish cut.. which was insane! Loved this place, would have gone back for another meal if there wasn't so much else to try in the area.

After nearly two weeks in Italy, we have finally found what we think is the best pizza ever! This restaurant has it all - great food, friendly service, reasonable prices, and a great location. We stopped in for lunch after seeing how good the food looked when we walked by the evening before. So glad we did! The pizza with... More

We enjoyed our entrees but the overall experience is what I will remember. There are not that many cars on the road in the evening, but watching the staff cross the road to serve is still entertaining. Don't miss the lemon delizzia for dessert. Reasonably priced.

This was one of the close restaurants to our villa and a walk DOWN the road. You can either choose to eat in the main dining area or walk across the street to a number of outdoor tables. The food was delicious and the service even better. Teresa was the first waitress that we met at our first meal in... More

I had the pleasure of staying at the B&B Dimora del Podesta for a week and ate 3 times at their restaurant, Saraceno d'Oro. The food was so delicious, I didn't want to eat anywhere else. Some of their specialties are seafood, veal, ravioli with mushroom sauce, pizza & pasta, beautiful desserts. I had the veal & the ravioli &... More
