Sitting the sun to drink coffee - the perfect spot

The outside terrace catches the sun most of the day, the coffee is good and the staff efficient and friendly.

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

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........!!!!

Busy place with standard local things like ftira and pea/cheese cakes + some salads. I took Caprese Salad which was very good. Fresh mozzarella, high-quality olive oil, tomatoes had more taste than you typically get during winter season. One thing to mention - the portions are not very big, so you might need two dishes to feel satisfied.

Came out of an event from the Hilton. Of course others followed the same so place was full. Ordered a duck wrap and a pie. Took over 35 minutes to get our food. Pie was good but wrap was horrible. We did not want to complain so we were ready to pay for it but ordered a second pie instead.... More

Visited here a few times for a night cap on the way back to the Hilton after a night out. Always excellent service and very reasonable prices. Recommended.
