Excellent food but extremely agressive selling of 'bill enhancement options"

The Eggplant Bonifacio was one of the best dishes we have ever had anywhere. However to get there we had to overcome the waiter's insistence that we really wanted to order the much higher priced sampler of three dishes which included the eggplant. The waiter served us the sampler anyway--which we... read more

Let's be clear: food is excellent at Stella d'oro. House specialties like Aubergines à la Bonifacienne and Lasagnes au four are definitely safe bet. Menu is well balanced with seafood (pates aux homard: top!), fish (assortment of grilled fish: top!) and meat (cochon grille: top!), deserts are ok. Wine list is short but they have some good stuff. staff is... More

This was by far one of the best meals we had in all of our 6 week trip! I had the seafood risotto (which had a hint of tarragon in it) and the scallops on the top were sheer perfection! My husband had the duck and vegetables - a total melt in your mouth experience! This family run restaurant would... More

The duck was simply to die for. Perfect cooking and the sauce was scrumptious. The fresh pasta melted in my mouth. The frasier was unbelievably delicious. The staff was so helpful and patient with my questions. They were so polite and attentive in a natural welcoming way. It was a special bday dinner for me and this restaurant exceeded my... More

Already when making the reservation over the phone, the people were kind in tone of voice. The place is on two floors, not too big that it feels like entering what might have been a home. we were perceived to speak Spanish, so were sent a young waiter that spoke Spanish, it turns out he is one of the sons...

If you are out to find something special for dinner, this restaurant, which was riun by the same family for 3 generatios is one of the best in the old city of Bonnifacio. The service, including the cook is run by nearly entire family and they often come to your table to inquire in a gentle and polite way about... More

This restaurant was the most disappointing experience of our stay in Corsica.The waiter recommended the catch of the day at 400 grams per person. We ended up with not too large portions of very oily fish, full of bones. As mentioned in other reviews, the catch of the day seems to be the trick to increase the bill. Also, several... More

Not only will you be having diner in a typical Corsican decorated restaurant but you will taste very good Corsican food and meet the charming and nice family that runs the place. Enjoy the "moitié-moitié" or Lobster Tagiatelle. Plate are well sized so dont over order. I went 3 times and each time it was good, friendly. A must try... More

One of the most perfect meal I ever had. Bonifiacio was a great trip and Stella d'Oro was our highlight. Try the eggplant dish please....
