We had a late lunch here consisting of a plate of Sardinian meats & cheeses and a bowl of spaghetti carbonara with a couple of beers. We cannot fault the quality of the food/beer but when we got the bill we were astonished to find that the cover charge equated to 25% of the total - and we don't recollect... More

The restaurant looked appealing from the first sight due to the location on the pier, but that was the only advantage of this place. I ordered pasta with porcini, but it turned out to be pasta with worms what couldn't be left unnoticed. After having showed this to the waiter she called the manager of the restaurant, the rudest manager... More

Having been on vacation to Italy for about 20 years, the way I speak Italian is ok. But as soon as the owner of this restaurant noticed I wasn't Italian, within 5 sec. he urged me to speak English or German, because otherwise I was wasting his time and would leave our table. Very rude behaviour and even the food... More

We were disappointed with the food here. The starter of spaghetti with prawns and asparagus was OK, but the main courses of mixed fish and grilled prawns were overcooked and the prawns were really rubbery. The tuna salad was the best, but you can't really do a lot wrong to that! We didn't feel tempted to risk a dessert. The... More
