We had dinner here early one evening around 7pm with our two young children. We were seated in the garden to the rear of the restaurant which is peaceful, prettily lit, with lots of trees and flowers. The food was very Sicilian, pasta, pizza and seafood. The staff were friendly and welcoming, even taking into account our young children, something... More

We went there because of the "excellent" reviews, but we found the typical restaurant that doesn't care because their clients are "stupid tourists, so what do they know." We received all the food already cold. The caneloni were slightly undercooked, but ok. The risotto was undercooked. The chicken breast was undercooked. We asked for a new one, and after inquiring...

We booked a table for 6 and when we arrived, our table was in the sun so they made a real effort to move it into the shade! The service was great and the food was really good and tasty! The menu was the most varied to any other restaurant we had been to! We had a lovely lunch!

This restaurant is excellent for food and location. The staff are very friendly and as we like to eat early found it just right for us. The portions were very good the steaks out of this world. Would definitely recommend trying here. First class in all respects.

This is a restaurant with many tables outdoor in a backyard. They served olives when we arrived. We tried a wonderful starter Duo Parmaggiani aubergine. very tasty. The fish was fresh and the grilled vegetables was good. Maybe we should have asked when ordering so that we knew that the pizza caprese with fresh tomatoes and mozzarella cheese is served... More

A wide selection of dishes to suit all pockets, from excellent pizzas to local seafood specialties. Dinning in the garden is lovely, but arrive early to avoid disappoint. Local desserts are gorgeous.
