We have a dinner for a 14 pax group. As the food is all freshly prepared after our order, we have to wait. Portions are small (see photos) but our fish & deserts are very good.

Pleasant menu of the day meal, tasty well presented, very quick service. Location 200 metres off the main square was peaceful and quiet and made it a tiny bit better value. Recommended for a very nice lunch.

First of all the waitress was really rude. The main course i ordered was small and not tasty and after all that mess they tried to charge more then written in the menu. Dont go there, cook yor own meals or buy some fasr food but dont go there. Its a shame for italy!

Visited for evening meal. Probably the worst quality and value for money I have ever had. 2 1st courses were adequate but very basic pasta dishes. both 2nd course meals were appalling quality. I never thought Italian food could be this bad! When we mentioned it wasn't great when asked the waitress just wanted to argue...........

Please dont go there. Food is average, overly priced and portions are goddamn small. Waitress is so rude and they charge extra for everything e.g. olive oil to go with bread, hot sauce was charged 2 euros! So freaking rude.
