We had a lovely meal at the restaurant and the local fish was delicious. The service however is very slow and quite laid back. Worth a visit if you have the time !

Located on a tiny piazza this restaurant was full at lunchtime. Service was very friendly, portions were very good and the dishes were simple and fresh. The smoked mozzarella grilled on lemon leaves was so flavorful. I followed up with Spaghetti al Limone - a light cream sauce brightened with grated lemon rind, yummy! House wine was also good and...

We shouldn't have been sitting in in the first place. We were not hungry but my wife just wanted to have that famous specialty of the area, namely fried anchovies. In short, the dish was on the menu so we sat down and tried ordering it. The waiter told us that it was not available. Here is our miss -... More

Stopped in on a rainy, chill Sunday afternoon when most other places were not yet open. Waiter wasn't especially congenial but otherwise was prompt and attentive. Started with a superb stuffed squid appetizer. Followed by a top notch ravioli with tomato sauce and basil, and an equally nice scialiatelli pasta with tomato sauce and grilled eggplant. Just really good, unassuming,... More

At the recommendation from a local store we were told this is a local hang out serving good food. Very small plain decorated and owner was running the show. Bi-lingual English and Italian we were able to communicate with him. We order tomato and mozzarella, linguini and clams, spaghetti with meat sauce and spaghetti with capers, olive and tomatoes Everything... More

we wandered in hopefully and left satisfied. our waiter quietly reassured us that the food was gluten free, even brought out the packet of g-free bread to show us. Fantastico! delicious pizza, insalata calabrese, eggplant parmigiana, and some really good coffee to finish. A great find after a long walk.

This was the second restaurant we ate at outside of our hotel on one of the tours. We asked to sit inside as it was warm that day. They were very accommodating as there were five of us and only 3 tables inside. I had pizza and it was so good. Much better than the one I had in Sorrento... More

Ordered the basic spaghetti bolognese and seafood linguini. The friendly waiter suggested the homemade pasta as a possibility instead of the linguini. Nothing was basic about our lunch. Both were delicious and service was very nice.

My wife and I ate here in late Sep 2015. We ordered the rocket salad and eggplant pasta. It was amazing. Some of the best food we had in all of Italy. It was recommended by a shop keeper. And just to prove that it is a place where locals eat we actually ran into the restaurant owner of il... More

We were proposed to go here by local friends. And it was brilliant. Kids running around, the family serving you. Italian as it can be!
