When no locals recommended it, I was leery, but it was close to our hotel. They were friendly when we arrived and seated us right away, but they were very inattentive and slow after that. I enjoy the Italian style of a slow-paced dinner, but when the wine bottles are empty or food arrives and there aren't table settings, that's... More

We had great meals here during our stay in Tirrenia and go back very time we visit the town. Christian the owner always remembers us and makes us very welcome. The food is great and the desserts are exquisite.

We have visited this restuarant since it opened and had some excellent meals and memories. However we visited twice last week,we were dissapointed on our first visit, a reasonable meal but rude owner. We ignored this believing it to be a one off. This was a mistake , the food arrived intermittently, cold and with poor uncaring service.Nevermind all good... More

Chance on this restaurant while wandering, looked like they were preparing to open, asked what time and was told they were open, I suppose we were just early for Italy. The menu is in both Italian and English, very varied, waiting staff very helpful with the local wine and beer choice. Ordered a starter each, mistake they are easily big... More

The waiter was pretty unhelpful. Both my husband and I had pasta dishes, perfectly fine- nothing special tho. (Pasta cooked perfectly but you surely should expect that in Italy!) Wrong beer and water (we didn't complain). Charged twice for the water. Again the service charge was abit of cheek for the sloppy service!

This was one of the best restaurants we tried during our stay in Tirrenia. The food was delicious, staff were friendly and helpful and the atmosphere was great. I throughly enjoyed my salmon ravioli (beautifully presented) followed by delicious chocolate profiteroles! The decor was amazing I wish we had tried this one first so we could have visited more than... More

This place had a great review so we were keen to visit. We have a young toddler but there was nothing to really accommodate her except a rickety high chair and us being squeezed in an unconfortable corner. We were advised it opened at 6:30 when we walked past earlier, we arrived at this time needing to eat early but... More

Great food and service. We enjoyed all of the dishes we eat there. The house wine is the best. We went there 3 nights during our stay. You have to go there to eat if your in the area.
