They have really nice sandwiches and the potato & leek soup is heaven in a bowl! In the summer the food can take a while to get to the table but it's usually worth the wait.

We used the café for breakfast on most mornings to avoid the hotel prices, and when we were coming back from a long day sight seeing, they do a take-a-way service which is so useful. The staff were really friendly and the quality of food and portion size great value for money. If you're stopping at the Hilton then please... More

We ate their last night and both had the specials, always advised off season. Both meals were large and tasty and washed down with some local brew. The staff were attentive and the service was fast but not rushed... All in all good for no fuss dining

The perfect place for your daily morning get-up coffee....!!!!! The place is ideal for all seasons since they have a good seating capacity both indoors & outdoors ! The food & pastries in addition to the pizzas are simply exquisite....my meeting place for clients over a snack or a coffee....

I like the fact that you can have anything from a good plate of pasta to a simple coffee any time of day. Location is great with parking at Portomaso, and if the weather is good you can sit outside and watch the world go by........!!!!
