Went to this restaurant just the once but we enjoyed the food. Sat out on one of the tables in the small street. The restaurant was recommended to us & we understood why. Tasty food & not expensive either. Well worth a visit

We were quite surprised by the number of scooters that passed by while we were sat there but that's al fresco dinning for you. The food was really good. I had the daily special of pasta with meat in a tomato sauce... More
