Good Service and Large Portions

The view of the beach and ocean from the dining area is beautiful. Service was very good and the staff was very personable. We ordered the mixed seafood antipasto for two and a pizza to split. The antipasto was so large that we were stuffed by the time the pizza came and really couldn't enjoy it... read more

We had dinner here twice. The first time we all had spaghetti, which you would expect to be excellent in a place that advertises itself as a spaghetteria. It was good but not excellent, nothing remarkable about it. The second time we had tuna and steak. The tuna was fine but the steak a bit chewy. The terrace is nice... More

Went here due to good reviews about service and food. Although cannot fault the food (partner had lasagne that she still talks about a few days later, I had a nice pizza) the service wasn't 5 stars, felt like we were ignored a bit, it was 11pm on a Wednesday night and maybe we were just unlucky since many others...

After a long day of travelling it was nice to have a good meal in a relaxing atmosphere. The service was polite and efficient. Food was good (we both had pasta) and appetizers were generous (bruschetta and... More

After 10 days to decide that, with all the restaurants around, this is where you want to return has to say something. In fact we went there 2 nights on the trot. First night they gave us frizzante wine which they quickly replaced with some really good house white. The pizzas were the best we had. You can tell as... More

Didn't like it. The waiters were reluctant to combine tables for our small company. Pizza was detestable - I never could imagine that I can try such pizza in Italy!
