We dined at Don Pedro's 3 times during our week long stay. Unaccustomed to the late dinner hour in Italy, we would show up around 7:30 and we were usually the first customers there. The staff was so gracious. Don Pedro's prides themselves in serving fresh local fish. It was delicious and you can be assured that it is fresh... More

This wonderful find is opposite the Cimalonga Tower. There is free parking nearby. We met friends and shared antipasti, then pizza. The antipasti was a meal in itself! So many plates of fish and vegetables in all typical variations for the town. The pizza was delicious. Service was attentive, even though the tables were full. Rosita gave us a warm... More

Set in a beautifully picturesque setting in the top of the old town. We waited an hour and a quarter for cold antipasti. We had to ask for averything at least twice including basics like cutlery and drinks etc. We cancelled our secondi as we had almost lost the willl to live. I think this might be fine off-peak when...

We had a very good lunch at this restaurant. We ate Pepata di Cozze, which were excellent. The cozze were freh and huge and the sauce was excellent. As a secondo we had linguine ai gamberoni which was also an extremely good dish. We also ate Pollipo salad which was good but not excellent because it was not as tender... More
