Lunch was ok but nothing special. The Risotto was tasteless. Pizza average. The Lemon cake looked very nice, but we didn't try it. Prices were ok. The little island is so touristic, don't expect any nice food there.

We ordered pizza and found that some toppings are not fresh (canned mushrooms) Overall everything is average: room, atmosphere, service, choice and food

We visited the island two days ago and came across this restaurant. The food was average. Service was friendly and quick. It's ok for one visit. The best, the don't charge for the service, something rare in Italy.
