The concierge at our hotel recommended this restuarant as the one we wanted to go to was closed. The decor is pleasant and inviting as was the owner. He recommended a few starters which we ordered with the grilled squid being the pick of the bunch. A few other starters arrived which we did not order. The mains were average... More

It lacks the atmosphere of a high class restaurant, yet its portions and prices are absolutely ridiculous. As an extra we got €5 on our bill for a few slices of bread we didn't even ask for. I admit I didn't fully understand the concept of multiple dishes, but then again I would assume some sort of menu on the... More

After reading on trip advisor this was nearly 5 stars me and husband visited this restaurant as he loves seafood. The menu was very limited and horrendously overpriced. I ordered the recommended ravioli which was nice but nothing special and there must have been 5 small pieces, My husband ordered the fillet of sole and he received what only can... More

We were beyond disappointed in this place. On a 17-day trip, this was by far the worst meal/experience we had. Let me run through it to explain why. I was tempted to give them a two-star review for the nice people and service, but the food was not good and the price was entirely too high. We chose this place... More

"But, if you try sometimes, you get what you need." Poorly made cherry tomato basilico. Having unripe tomatoes and no basilico makes for an uphill battle. I also don't like 'al dente'. I couldn't finish the dish. The side of fried artichoke positively ruined the artichoke stems inside tasteless, heavy, tough , thick batter. I'm from CA and I know... More

Booked a table based on other good reviews, what a mistake that was. We arrived and were given a badly placed table right by the kitchen door, we should have just walked out there and then but we didn't. We were given a small tray of thinly sliced stale bread and a small bottle of water - this we later... More

Dear Lord, I'm sorry that she liked nothing in my restaurant and I am very sorry for this. Regarding the reserved table it was reserved at 21.15 to 21.30 and we had only what really is the best in front of the kitchen, but she did not appreciate that it was the best table, and I'm speaking evil of the...

Was great! Just great!! High rating from many ppl has reason why. You can even ask them to cook as u want even though its not on he menu. But should remind them to put less salt for pastas cos our 2 pasta dishes were terribly salty. But they changed for us very quickly.

The food was really tasty but we were disappointed when we saw the bill- 300 eur for 4 appetizers, artichokes, 2 main courses and wine (30eur/bottle). Everything tasted wonderful, the waiters were attentive and we didn't have to wait long for our food. But we made a mistake at the very beginning- we didn't explicitly clarify the number and cost...

We visited at our Hotels recommendation and followed Stefano's suggestions- antipasti were small plates of squid,octopus,tuna,shrimp carpaccio all of which were fresh and fabulous. Entrees were equally good and in all this was one of the best restaurants we have visited.
