Traditional, cozy restaurant down a side alley. We had sliced smoked pork with fig to start. Second course was seasonal vegetables with pasta. The 2 of us shared the first 2 courses. For our mains, I had perfectly cooked encrusted sea bass and my husband had chicken stuffed with fois gras. We shared one bottle of wine and split a... More

Beautiful restaurant with out standing food. Well served well explained. A Cosy period room of high taste. Menu is varied and the cooking was delicous.

There were only tourists dining when we visited. There is little to recommend with very average food. The service was quite good but let down by the cooking. Far too much salt for us but this seems to be a local thing...possibly because of the weather.

Quaint, charming restaurant in a small alley off the main piazza in Maratea. Very good local traditional food. A little pricey for what we ate

On the surface this appears to be a real find. However the food was poor and expensive. Left feeling we had been ripped off like a couple of unsuspecting and naive tourists. Don't be taken in !!

We went twice to this restaurant during our stay in Maratea. We were left on the fence as to whether to recommend it or not. The first night my husband had a pork roulade which was amazing and I had the fish with almond crumb which unfortunately didn't have much taste at all. I like fine dining portions but this... More

We ate here on our first night of eight in Maratea, and were left a little flat and disappointed by the whole experience. On a narrow side street off the main street, this is quite a traditional venue. Food was of reasonable quality, but for the prices they are charging, not that great really. What left me even flatter, was... More

Ate here after seeing good reviews from Trip Advisor. Food and restaurant were more upmarket than the other town restaurants. Good choice of local dishes and wines. Advice from the English speaking owner was very useful in choosing a great meal.
