We went to the restaurant in August, it is necessary to reserve a table as a lot of people want to eat there in the evening. The restaurant is in a very nice square, very central. The staff is extremely hard-working and friendly, the food...was really fabulous and tasted good. We had pizza & pasta and loved it. The service is 10/10, the waiter bought an extra blanket as my girlfriend was cold!! Great, that's what we mean by high-end service.More

Nice atmosphere, relaxing and romantic. The service is good but not great. The pizzas are really good, we tried the mushroom pizza and the picante and were both excellent! Also, the buratta salad that we had, was refreshing and tasty. The two desserts we tried...were not what we expected. The tiramisu is not the original tiramisu, if someone never had tiramisu in his life then he might find it ok, but it’s not! The chocolate trilogy was just ok, nothing special.More

Really cozy place at the square. Had some wine at 7 and continued into dinner. Really nice burrata salad to share as a starter. Had the Orzo and Beef pasta as main with an amazing glas of Valpolicella. 5 star Italian food.

Me and my family visited this restaurant twice in our 7 day visit to Zante because it was incredible. The food is authentic and fresh, especially the Arinchini. It was all delicious and the service was also amazing. The location is beautiful and it is...right in the centre of Zante town, so perfect to explore before or after your meal. Overall a really lovely restaurant that I would definitely recommend to others visiting Zante.More

While the location is nice, some things need serious improvement: - while you are seated to the table, nobody brings the menu unless you catch a waiter - if we asked the waiter on our sector when drinks are comming, response came patronizing and ironic...- takes 10 minutes to get drinks - simple waters - after eating first course, empty dishes stayed on the table many minutes while the same lady waiter was doing nothing aside BUT the biggest problem, it is now 12h since my daughter is been throuwing up the Napoli pasta she had, because of food poisoning. Probably it was made of boiled leftovers!? So - location - excellent - service - poor - quality - poor - food poisoning - unacceptableMore

Amazing Italian food some of the best gnocchi i have ever had. Pizzas were tasty, thin and cripy stone baked. Restaurant is very romantic, candle lit and great for couples. Lovely service. Located right on a main square so easy to hop from bar to...bar afterwards.More

If you want to have proper Italian food in Zakinthos, this is the right place to go. We had pasta and as an Italian I can say, it was cooked perfect.
