We dined here a couple of days ago. The staff were welcoming and friendly, accommodating to our quirky requirements. The food was nice although all the main courses did not come out together which meant some of us had finished our mains before others had started. But it's a small kitchen and the food was good, staff were lovely so... More

The food was delicious I tried the walnut pasta and was very pleased with it. Everyone enjoyed the food. The only complaint I would have was the service was slow and they only have 1 drinks menu ???

I found this restaurant while walking down a little street and it was the best food I have had here so far. I had the pesto which was excellent and my mom had the ravioli with with walnut sauce which she absolutely loved. Reasonable prices and a good old home cooked meal. Will definitely go back another night.

This restaurant is located in an isle away from the crowd of the main plaza. Food is EXCELLENT. Nice carpaccio, home pomade style.

This is in a quiet side street which we thought would be nice because the main road through town is surprisingly noisy and busy. Food is OK. Not particularly exciting and not particularly cheap. The restaurant lacks atmosphere-it's obviously family run, but they weren't big on the warm welcome. In all honesty, if travelling with kids for a few days... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by a local. We had Caprese and ravioli with walnut sauce to start and followed with tuna with basil and mint pesto, and veal in a tuna sauce. All very tasty, service was good. This is a much quieter restaurant than the others in the town so makes for a different dining experience. Menu... More

The minestrone was very tasty. I had a pesto pasta with green beans, with about 5 green beans for the entire plate of pasta. The beans tasted canned, but I could be wrong. My husband had a salad with tuna that was OK. The location was off the beaten path, and the atmosphere a little worn, but certainly clean and... More

The restaurant is small and basic. The waitress friendly. I was disappointed not find neither ice nor Coke Zero. And the bread basket came without olive oil . However the food came really good. We ordered octopus carpaccio and sea food spaghetti and we enjoyed it. Prices are good most dishes not more than 20€ .

We were looking for authentic Italian but found poor service and no atmosphere. We were offered a menu but no wine list as it turned out there seemed to be one for the whole restaurant! Service was slow and eventually we decided to have a dessert and coffee else where. The saving grace was that the dish we ordered (veal... More

Reserved our table through the Hotel Continental concierge. Arrive on time, empty restaurant at 7.30pm..Ordered 3 courses, good anchovies, calamari carpaccio very good. Then an excellent main course choice of Tuna in pesto with grilled veg and Sea Bass. Great food. During main course, we were still the only clientele, but the staff grew in numbers and tables all around... More
