I had the seafood degustation menu and it was great. 3 appetizers, 1 pasta, 1 main Service was attentive but they speak minimal English. There is no wifi in this cave environment. All for 30 euros with wine and water.

Fantastic food that rewards eyes (very nicely presented), tongue (tasting delicious) and belly (huge portions) - after the appetizer we could not finish the main. Waiters are reverent, attentive and friendly.

This place offers original recipes with sophisticated flavours yet still typically Italian. The service was friendly, helpful and interested in all their customers ( I watched them at other tables). The wine (a local sauvignon blanc) was the best Italian wine I have tasted. The...More

The owner of our B&B recommended this place. The service was really friendly, it had an upbeat atmosphere and they serve great food in generous portions - beware of ordering too much. This place is such good value for money - we couldn't quite believe...More
