“Delicious food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2014 via mobile

We ate here twice during our week long holiday to the old town. The food was delicious. We had steak and pizza and it was so good we went back later in the week. The service was excellent and the waiters cracked jokes with us and made us laugh. There was a great atmosphere. We noticed that quite a lot of local people ate there which is surelya good sign!

“Not the best”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2013

Was very disappointed by the food.
I was expecting more Italian authenticity.
It was lacking the ingredients that would have made it perfect.

“Dissappointed”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

The tout was very pushy and in the end we went in after he grabbed my 9 year old daughters hand to take her in the restaurant. The pizza wasn't the best, I had the La barca pizza and the prawns were mushy. I could of got a better pizza in tesco's.

My wife had a Lasagne and she was half way through it when the waiter came and took it from her before she had finished.

It was the worse restaurant we had food in during our stay. Top dollar for very little food. Avoid at all costs.
