My Wife and I went here because it was highly recommended by just about every source we came across. The Chef Maximo was friendly and entertaining, he and his staff speak great english and cater to tourists but remain authentic with amazing Italian dishes. We ate breakfast, lunch and dinner here once we realized how great the food was. There's no view and the location isn't the best because it's a little bit away from the main village center, but you will not be disappointed with the quality of the food. Ask your server or Maximo what he recommends when you're there and be willing to try something different and possibly outside your comfort zone. I ate the lemon anchovies and they were the best fish I've ever had. My wife had a lasagna in creamy meat sauce and it was absolutely amazing.
