Its a bit difficult to find. It is out of the main centre of the town near the sports stadium and its worth persevering to find it. A big restaurant in terms of the numbers it can seat. Clearly local extended families and friends meet there to share traditional, wholesome, unpretentious Italian food at a reasonable price in a convivial... More

Great food and like others the antipasta de la casa is an unbelievable starter. Pizza and Pasta dishes are wonderful for families and very good value. could not fault this place and will be going back there.

We ate here on our first night and enjoyed the food, service and atmosphere so much that we returned several times during our two week holiday. Simple food that tasted great - I'm addicted to the fave and cicoria! Vito was very charming and happy to explain all the dishes. The staff were all delightful. We are looking forward to... More

A great place to eat and very popular by the local people too. We were very lucky that one of the waiters spoke fluently English and good give us good advice about the food and the wine. It was delicious!!

Wonderful food, fantastic atmosphere and, oh, so Italian. As others have said, you can't go wrong with the antipasti della casa starter. My wife and I were pleading for mercy after the 28th dish arrived! Stunning food and well worth a visit.

My husband had the antipasti della casa which was a meal in and of itself. Twelve or more sample dishes He liked everything but the strange bitter olive dish. I had gnocchi with pomodoro sauce. It was just ok. The sauce was more like mellow Campbell tomato soup. I expected chunks of real tomato given home growns are abundant right... More

Excellent service despite a full restaurant inside and out . Excellent meals for us , 2 adults and two teenagers. Not being a person of many words all I can say is that it is friendly well priced and all of the dishes we had were excellent. We were on holiday and had eaten at many restaurants in the area...

Gorgeous venue if you eat in the garden. Slightly more "utilitarian" inside. However, I love this rustic decor and if the natives flock here (and they do!!) what better testimony to great food, service and atmosphere do you want? You MUST try the ANTIPASTO DEL CASA. It just keeps coming and coming with fish, meat, vegetable, salad and bread delights... More

We were recommended by our hosts to eat thereand were not dissapointed. We booked a table for Sunday Lunch. It was packed full of very animated italian families. No better place to go than where the locals go. We ordered the antipasti - wow, we were full after that! The pasta was beautiful. No pizza at lunch - big disappointment... More
