Qerky little family resturant, with classical Italian dishes, where the price list doesn't show sign of the place being situated in a holiday Hotspot. The pizza was crisp and delicious.

Dined here twice in June 2016. Quintessential local, value for money restaurant with lovely warm atmosphere. Food is good, reasonably priced and service is excellent. The kind of place you would want to return to every night. We also had a takeaway pizza which was excellent. One thing to note for those with a gluten-free diet is that the condition... More

You cannot go wrong. They serve all the classic sea food and pasta dishes, plus the best pizza in Santa. The prices are extra ordinarily low. Don't miss this place.

Went to this restaurant twice while in the resort. Away from the tourist places nearer the sea front and looks as if frequented by the locals. Pizzas were good and service was friendly and efficient. Good choice of pizzas to choose from. Would recommend to anyone who fancies a pizza or pasta and away from the tourist spots.

We were introduced to this restaurant by some local friends and what a find. Inexpensive, great food, attentive service and a really great chatty informal atmosphere. In the summer opt for the outdoor seating... alfresco dining in the garden. The vino sfuso (fresh wine) is slightly fizzy, and delicious so I am told. And the calamari is some of the... More

The 15 or so minute walk from the sea front area to Dal Baffo is easy and builds the anticipation for what delicious experience one will have. The walk back after a great meal is just as nice. We ate there twice, but would have three times had it not been closed Tuesday eve. The atmosphere is nice and the... More

Agreed that you should just skip the pricier places and come to this relaxed, local restaurant where you are made to feel like family. The food is good, the wine is good and the service is great. We ended up eating here almost every night we stayed in SML. Why mess with perfection!

Everything in this restaurant is so delicious, so good that I'm there almost every day except Tuesday's when they are closed! The pizza is also top notch as well as the service!

We did not book but were welcomed to the last table available - a good sign. We both had pizza which were good but not amazing. A nice family run restaurant, plainly decorated, good for family, the decor lacks a bit of charm

Just skip all the pricey restaurants along the waterfront and head for Dal Baffo if you're interested in experiencing what it is like to dine as the locals do. Despite it being a busy Saturday evening, we had excellent service - prompt and friendly. Although pizza seems to be the most popular menu item among the locals at Dal Boffo,... More
