My friends and I had such a wonderful evening here! We were made to feel so welcome. The wine recommendations were perfect, the menus delicious and reasonably priced, and the conversation priceless. I would recommend it to everyone.

Rolando was such a friendly host, especially for a ourselves, who speak quite limited Italian. He really made an effort to welcome us. The interior was very warm and homely and had a family feel to it. The food was excellent. We both had the vegetable set menu, which for €20 was the best priced food we had in Italy,... More

They offer 3 course meals for 20 euros. We both chose the meat version. (you can choose seafood or vegetarian as well) The meal was really amazing. It was so good that we had to try a dessert as well. We had crème brûlée and it was great!

We were recommended by the owner of our guest house and this place is truly amazing. Great decoration, brilliant food. The chefs were very welcoming too, making the whole experience very personal and family like. We tried the sea food and meat tasting menu. Very reasonable price (€20 for each set of three courses) and the best Italian food I... More

This was recommended by a friend and it took a bit of finding but it was well worth it. The chef also waited in tables and told you all about the food, and even brought the fish (still moving so couldn't get fresher) for us to look at. For €20 you get a 3 course meal of fish, beef or... More
