Went there twice

The first time we went there, the restaurant was almost empty, everything was perfect, the service friendly and timely and the fish very good, so a five stars experience The second time the experience was not the same, say a 3 star dinner So the my vote on average is 4 stars

We visited Lo Sfizio on the recommendation of our innkeeper. He recommended a couple places but the others were on their off night, so we went here and loved it!! So much that the next night, when searching for dinner and looking at menus, we felt we would be disappointed in anything comparing it to how good Lo Sfizio was!... More

Chef obviously good and the fish of the day we had was very well cooked and tasty however waiter said would come with grilled vegetables, it didn't so just ate fish. The house wine is cheap but undrinkable so we just had water. Restaurant was busy but not ridiculous but almost impossible to get hold of a waiter or waitress... More

Some plus points, the menu is broader than some and dishes such as veal in tomato and fried anchovies were well executed. The starter of fish six ways was nice but somewhat lacking in finesse. Kids menu started well with pasta and then transitioned to deep fried chicken nuggets which were left. Seated outside our view was two rows of... More

Really nice place for dinner with friendly staff and good home wine. I would recommend two things - book a table and don't take the grilled fish (better oven, grill is dirty and thus bitter)

Worrying sign with all negative reviews in Italian and all positive in English... Wish i'd trusted my instincts! Food mediocre, place pretty standard and regret going here considering how much good food there is around here...

This restaurant is in a really beautiful town. The service was excellent with the owner showing great pride for his wonderful restaurant! For starters I had spaghetti with seafood and pesto and my husband had crab gnocchi both of which were heavenly dishes! We followed this with fried anchovies and grilled vegetables and I still can't stop thinking about those... More
