“A surprising delight”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2014

With my Italian being poor and the waiters English being non existent it was bound to be an interesting evening! Their menu bears no relation to the dishes we find in Italian restaurants in England and my wife and I failed to recognise almost everything listed. The waiter brought over a tablet pc that had pictures of what was on offer and that worked a treat. A lot of finger pointing ended up with an order being taken and a 0.5 litre of white wine sticky sitting on the table. I large starter shared 2 delicious mains the wine and 2 coffees all for less than 20€.

“Awesome Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2014

Awesome, authentic food! Nobody spoke English, but we made it work with my Spanish, and friend's German. Come in on Sundays, they serve squid & octopus!

I brought my family to visit my wife's grandmother's home town. On our second day we had lunch at Il Duca. Great food, great atmosphere!
