pretty spot in Old town

Be careful if you order fish of the day as it is priced by weight and can be expensive. We dined on a Monday and several items were not available. The kitchen is away from the dining area so there is a slight drama in serving food with silver lids. Slightly old fashioned feel. Not enamoured and had... read more

.......but a shame that the Restaurant did not match up. This restaurant has a Michelin rating, but sometimes this causes the proprietors to get ahead of themselves. On a lighthearted note the Xmas music played during our visit (June) seemed just a tad out of place! The Michelin rating has probably caused the pretentious ambience, and probably also the prices....

A lovely location marred by average food and slow service. It took an hour from when our order was taken until our main course arrived. Except for saying "it happens", the wait staff were total unresponsive to our plight and when the food did arrive it was only average.

We visited Gli Archi for lunch. The told us that they did not do outside service for lunch, we had to sit inside. They even turned on the air condition, wich was very nice with temperature rising to 35 c. Food was very good (stuffed zucchini flowers is worth a try!). Service was good, and with a smile. Decent wine... More

I was at Gli Archi for the first time in 2012 and left with a great memory of their superb tagliolini with moscardini. I returned this year and tagliolini were still fully up to expectations ! The quality of the food definitely compensates not having a sea view, although the setting in a courtyard along the stairs of an alley... More

Having eaten here a year ago, I remembered this as a good restaurant in a nice location in a quite alleyway. Well the location hasn't changed, the food is good but no longer exceptional, but whether due to the recession or pure opportunism they seem to now have more focus on as making as much more out of the less...
