Excellent and charming place

We ate here in the low season as a lot of other places were still closed. This one was open and filled with a happy crowd of Italians and tourists. We had awesome pasta, risotto and great grilled seafood! This place isn't about being fancy or chic - it is about great and honest Italian food! I wish... read more

We ate here per recommendation of the owner of the home we were renting in the area. Unfortunately, our experience was not a good one. The staff was not very attentive and food just average compared to other local restaurants that we have enjoyed during our vacation.

Reasonable, very good food and even creative, something rare in mid-priced restaurant in Italy. We went back twice.

Went here for dinner & was a pleasant evening. Was really looking forward to fish after reading the reviews. My partner had the fish ravioli truffle oil which was amazing. My vongole was nice but lacked the depth of flavour and the grilled seafood platter was fine, with 2 large king prawns, a loungistine & a small piece of swordfish... More

Not sure how others rated this so highly maybe we made bad menu choices. In particular both starters average both lacking taste/ flavour. Mains clams linguini (not) oily 50 clam shells 10 with clams in. Other main was red snapper with thin sliced potato (gratin) half not cooked enough and hard, dish was lacking in taste/flavour and over salted. Very... More

Unfortunately you didn't enjoy our food. As we wrote elsewhere most people love it, but it's impossible to be loved by everyone. Thank you and best regards. MV More

We arrived without reservations at about 8:00, a bit early for dinner in Italy. They had no room for us, but said if we were willing to leave by 9:30, they had a table for us. As it turned out, we would have liked to stay longer, because it was an outstanding experience. We both had seafood entrees and they... More

We ate here twice in one week partly because we wanted to vary the meat heavy diet characteristic of the area and partly because the food was good enough enough to tempt us back. The restaurant is in the centre of the old part of the down in a quaint narrow street and has a corresponding ambiance. The staff were... More

Hard to judge here as ate with kids who were hungry and it's not that sort of place. But seemed a little bit disorganised and not really sure of what they were about. Food was alright but I've had much better seafood pasta all over Italy. Atmosphere bit quiet and not enjoyable.

We've been to Montaione on holiday for the last couple of years and have eaten here on a number of occasions. The repeat visits are an indication of the experience! The food is excellent and whilst I think the seafood is the best, my family have also enjoyed selections away from seafood. If you like moules marinière, then I recommend... More
