“Smoking in the kitchen”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

If only we had remained in ignorant bliss! On arrival it seemed fine, the waitress was the wife of the owner and though friendly on arrival, soon donned a sour face (wearing her slippers no less). The food was quite nice - tasty but average considering the price. I had a sea bass(16 euros) and it didn't come with fries or anything. It was good hut I had to fillet it myself and made quite a mess - when an Italian couple ordered the same they were offered to have the bones removed!

The service left a lot to be desired, though it wasn't busy you had to signal for attention and most of the time they weren't looking our way.

THEN WE NOTICED THE SMOKING!! There was a glass panel with a view to the kitchen through which we could see a blonde chef casually smoking! IN THE KITCHEN- WHILST COOKING!!! Thank goodness we had already finished. This woman was literally smoking in the middle of the kitchen whilst food was coming in and out. And the owner and his wife were oblivious - they knew as they walked in and out during her 'fag break' and did absolutely nothing. DO NOT RECOMMEND if only for hygiene ...

One bonus - they gave us a beautiful drink of ice cream, prosecco vodka and limoncello. No idea what it was called but it was delicious.

“Good intimate dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

Very good food and service. Excellent wine, pleasant tables.
Not on a busy street, of the main stream. Prices are reasonable, but not cheap.

“Excellent family run”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

Great food, clean and friendly and a good mix of pasta, seafood and pizza on the menu. This restaurant was recommended by Bucintoro hotel staff and did not disappoint. Great night which included the owner singing a couple of songs on his guitar. Go there if you can

“Good restaurant off the beaten track”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

Good evening meal, but not exceptional, pleasant atmosphere and great service. We were 4 adults and 3 children and we wanted something close by. Our hotel recommended this place and the TA reviews were ok too. Appreciated the attentiveness to the children as they did not want anything on the menu so the kitchen prepared some of the best spaghetti carbonara I've ever tasted!
