The portions are tiny, we went for pizza after our dinner at La Sponda. The main course looked like something brought for tasting... If you decide to have dinner at La Sponda, make sure you have a good lunch or a pizza before your dinner.

Oops I mistakenly answered for the restaurant at Villa Franca. We only had dinner here so I cannot help with the breakfast. Dinner at La Sponda was good with a romantic setting.

Charming restaurant in the heart of Le Sirenuse Hotel. The restaurant is entirely lit by 450 candles. The cuisine is contemporary Italian, using only the freshest local ingredients. The view is breathtaking as is the impeccable service.
