A small locally run restaurant, by Italians who live in the area. The food is great though the menu is limited. The thin crust pizzas are to die for. The service is excellent and the staff are wonderful.

This is perfectly situated on the square on the terrace. Lots of Italian customers so looked hopeful for pizza and pasta. Very good service and the food was very tasty with high quality ingredients. Try the fish and pasta dishes especially. Desserts were also superb and beer was very reasonable. All in all a surprisingly good restaurant.

We fancied a change from the greek menus and decided to try this Italian restaurant. It wasn't as busy as some of the others but the staff very attentive and the food delicious! Do try it :)

Sadly we only found Il Gelso near the end of our holiday so we could not return but really wanted to. We both had pizza which had the thinnest lightest crispiest base and the most delicious toppings. The restaurant is pleasantly informal and rustic both inside and out with the great atmosphere that you would expect of a properly buzzy... More
