Truthfully I wasn't expecting much from this restaurant simply because it looks like a tourist trap, and it's located right in the centre of town, but my 'Other Half' wanted Italian, so that's what we had.Inside it's larger than one might have thought, but is pleasantly decorated and feels comfy. There are quite a lot of waiting staff, and they all seemed friendly and personable, and were all very attentive without being intrusive.
We shared a spinach and ricotta ravioli main course as a starter, and it was just fabulous. Beautifully cooked, full of flavour and in a creamy spinach sauce, yum!
My wife had the lasagne which she loved: firm on the plate without being dry; lovely filling and with a very good sauce.
Because I felt like I hadn't sampled enough fish on this holiday, I allowed myself to be talked into a quite ridiculously expensive catch of the day, but boy was it good.Obviously it was filleted and pan-fried, and then it was served in a tomato/caper/who knows what sauce that was truly exquisite. As part of the dish came a creamy tomato and prawn linguine and together, well, superlatives are failing me so I going with perfection!
We finished by sharing a fantastic crème brulee, and were both very happy campers. Apart from my fish, everything else was reasonably priced, including our usual tipple of local wine, so I would be more than happy to return
