Eating inside, so be prepared to be hot! However the food was fantastic, pizzas to die for, pasta gorgeous but huge portions. Staff lovely, chef walking around checking all is well. Very reasonable, lots of locals eating there.

Chef/Owner Tarek runs a fantastic restaurant that caters to the locals. He is a very enthusiastic and engaging proprietor. We ate there twice this year, all pastas, appetizers, desserts, wine were fantastico! We will be back next year.

We were taken here by the lovely couple who owned our rental house. Everything we ate was outstanding and the prices were so reasonable (7-10 Euros per entree). I had the Gnocchi with 4 cheese sauce and I am still thinking about it a week later. The staff is so nice and accomodating. The prices will lead you to expect... More
