If my stomach would have managed more, I would have had two mains. Excellent pasta and also the rabbit was awesome!

A small restaurant giving good service. An interesting range of local and other Italian dishes. Good quality ingredients expertly prepared. Not cheap, but the prices were about right. No inexpensive wine options, unfortunately. They get full very quickly so it is better to book.

Osteria Carabas is a very good place and it is very close to the train station. The food is traditional and tasty, the place was full of locals, and we were only tourists there. Personal was friendly and nice!

The best thing that can be said about this place is the cheerful owners. We went for lunch. We are mystified by the ratings, but maybe they are attributable to a separate chef serving dinner. They have a limited lunch menu, made even more sparse...More

I had the swordfish with fresh vegetables and everything was delicious. The menu is in Italian, but they explained it all to me so I could order. Food came quickly and was very good value. I plan on going back while I’m here this week....More
