Pleasant dining experience

4th night in SV and up until GNA Sara the eating experience had been distinctly average. When visiting GNA Sara both the food and service were extremely good. Always busy with people queueing outside, so if you don't want to wait to eat arrive before 19:30.

Get here before 7.30 or you will wait 30 mins - hour for a table always a good sing and we were not disappointed. We had the seafood risotto, fillet steak in marsala sauce, pizza and pasta dishes all very well cooked and presented. Next time we are back in S.Vito Gna sara will be on the to do list.

When visiting any part of Italy, we always look forward to the food and wine, and we were certainly not disappointed! The hotel staff recommended Gna Sara, and the food was delicious! We ordered a local wine, which was a red, full bodied semi-dry wine, and many different dishes to share. The service was outstanding and the food was amazing!... More

Great food, amazing service, very reasonably priced- would recommend it to anyone! The muscles and clams were delicious, the fresh pasta was also divine- thank you for a night to remember!

We wondered why there was a crowd outside this place. They don't take bokings, you can ask for a number and if you are around when it's called you get a table. Very fair. WE thought we'd give it a go and went for a pre dinner drink and managed to return at just the right time. And how lucky... More

The anti pasti was the best I had on this trip and service was always perfection. The restaurant is always busy and no reservations possible for dinner only on walk in we got lucky... More

Highly rate this restaurant with friendly and attentive staff & wonderful food. The mixed seafood antipasti is fabulous and wonderful pasta and seafood. Bit pricey and busy at weekends so advise booking.

Cous cous is nothing special. The other dishes anonymous in type and taste. Price is high. Not worth it. Don't go.
