The food is very good, sitting in the street on a nice day is also good, but the food is a bit expensive. Cars are also passing near you as you are eating,even though they are not allowed.

The chicken in the salad was not old, it was ancient and inedible. The waiter raised no eyebrow or made some comment when he cleared and brought back the uneaten dish.

We had high hopes for a great dinner having read other reviews and having learned about the chef's credentials and we were not disappointed. Every aspect of the meal was excellent and it made for a great final evening to our holiday. Sfoglia is a must if you appreciate fantastic food. We will definitely be back next time we visit...

We ate here tonight, it being one of only a few places open on a Sunday evening, and we were not disappointed! I had porcini mushroom ravioli, which came in a cream sauce, beautifully seasoned, & topped with soft, unctuous tomatoes and a little grated cheese, and my husband had a good portion of seared tuna, with a selection of...

Lamb rump, huge tuna steaks, the best calamari ever - followed by caramelised pineapple. Highly recommend this restaurant - it's a real find, and will definitely be back!

During Notte Bianca we were looking for a place to have a drink only. Two other restaurants refused to serve us. Without any problems at all we got a table and our drinks. We asked for deserts which were served quickly and were really nice. Prices were reasonable and service really friendly. Definitely going to have a meal there.

Visited for the first time yesterday and was impressed. We shared some fish-based starters, which were all delicious and cooked to perfection! Main courses were perfect as well...some of us went for the duck, some for the rabbit and some for sea bass. Delicious! Then the deserts....they are to die for! Definitely worth visiting!

Just don't get the preceding positive reviews. Visited on a Sunday recently and walked in, there being little else open. A pasta with mushroom sauce was sweetened by what might have been a wine reduction but was almost treacly and a pasta with sea urchins was a tomato based slime from which the sea urchins were seemingly missing. It is... More

I don't go on TripAdvisor often, unless somewhere provides a memorable experience like No 3 in Ross. Last night during Notte Bianca Oswald served me a beer when no other restaurant in the city would. I made him a promise that we would return for lunch, which we did today. The point is I'm the winner as well, because I've... More
