We have eaten in this restaurant back before it's current location on the Decameron road. Francesco is a talented chef and owner. He is from Italy, and the food is authentic. The only place in town to get real veal. We were there 4 times over the last four weeks, and as busy as it is in high season, the... More

We have had numerous delicious meals here but last night just did not measure up. Service was fine. Friendly and efficient. However, for the first time the food did not hit the bark. The Quinta salad was delicious. Huge portion , fresh and dressing is tasty. The spaghetti bolognese was just plain bland. It was missing the spices or ingredients... More

Our second visit here in 2 years and the quality, service and food is excellent. They make their own pasta, bread and food to drool over! Worth a dinner reservation.

We have walked past this restaurant numerous times but have never tried it. One night this week, we were running late and were having terrible luck finding a restaurant open as it was almost 9pm. We were about to give up and just taxi back to our condo without dinner in our bellies. As we were walking to the taxi... More

We have walked by this restaurant many time and never eaten there. We finally stopped in for dinner this week. Both of us ordered gnocci and it was very good. The texture and taste of the pasta and sauce were both excellent. The server was helpful and welcoming. It was a very good experience.

A nice fine. Loved the bruschetta. Huge flavours of fresh tomatoes, garlic, evoo!! Yum! Pasta el dente, veal very tender and nicely lemony. Service attentive and friendly, a good local restaurant where the owner Francesco is also the chef. Noticed it's an expat hangout too.

Great Italian food, friendly staff, met the owner, very nice too! We ordered the special great meatballs and spaghetti in a wonderful red sauce, and the lasagna, both tasted great, cooked to order, very fresh and great flavors. The waiters were very accommodating, brought fresh chopped garlic, fresh basil and wonderful bread with oil and balsamic vinegar. This place is... More
