Good coffee, excellent foccacia, great terrace. Staff can be a little slow, but all in all, very good. Nice place to have morning coffee at and have a foccacia for breakfast.

Nice and relaxed, great home cooked food. Famous for coffee and cake, pies and huge salads. A nice escape from the Hilton from time to time.

A nice and friendly place. Great for a business meeting, or a nice relaxed night out. Unfortunately they do not validate parking in a place where parking is very difficult. It is a bit costly however good service was given.

We ate here several times over our weeks holiday for breakfast or lunch. The toasted sandwiches are fresh and great value for money and pizzas are lovely! Also position in a sunny spot perfect for watching the world go by.

A lovely caffe (note the Italian spelling and pronunciation) next door to Hilton Hotel, Portomaso residential complex and the casino. Prices seemed fair. Good access to public transport system. Service courteous and generally very good. Nice clean establishment.

It has a very good location, and menus consistent with its "cafe" branding. I have enjoyed a couple of times a diner watching a football match. This time of the Euro 2016. The match could have been better, but the service was excellent.
