We visited Astemio after reading reviews on Trip Advisor. We were the first to arrive but the restaurant soon began to fill up with a few tourists but mainly locals. It was a pleasant evening so we were sat in the lovely atmospheric courtyard garden. The menu was in Italian and English and the waiters were very attentive. Each customer also got a complimentary drink on arrival.
My sister and I had pizzas and after reading a fellow reviewer saying these were the size of UFOs, they were not wrong! We could only eat just over half but the waiter offered to box it up for us. We also had a starter and and dessert and wine. The portions are very generous, even for Italian standards. Everything on the menu was far more competitively priced than Italian food in England, and obviously the quality doesn't even compare.
Wine is sold by the bottle or 50cl carafe, meaning we had over a glass of wine each for €4.50 in total, a bargain by anyone's standards.
The waiters were friendly and attentive without being overbearing. A very enjoyable meal. We even plan to visit again before we depart Riposto!
