We were really pampered at this place. The dishes were fresh and delicious (and of good size), the staff was really attentive and they even made something on request that wasn't on the menu. The ambience is good with some partial sea view from the non-smoking glassed terrace. Not cheap, but for this kind of food, the price is totally... More

We had been living here for almost three weeks when we first discovered this place. You could walk right by on the little strip of tourist shops and not realize inside you would find the best food in the city. Caponata that melts in your mouth. Polpette with perfect seasonings. But even better, the owner and servers are fantastically friendly... More

We ordered steak, meatballs and mussels. The steak was okay, the meatballs not very special. Mussels were offered with garlic and white wine but serves with tomato and parsil. The waitress said there was also garlic and wine in it. But it wasn't. Small portions for the price paid. No second visit

We dined for two nights in a raw at L'Incontro and we were very happy about it. Fish and sea food was very fresh, and all dishes that we tried were properly cooked. The environment is friendly.

This restaurant was a few minutes from our hotel and having read the reviews, decided to give it a try. We were so glad that we did. The hosts were so friendly and welcomed us as if we were family. And the food was amazing. It was so good that we went back another night and were welcomed warmly again.... More
