This is a great restaurant to sample local specialties. The portions were large and the waitress was very helpful with her suggestions.

We chose this restaurant on the basis of reviews here and the wish to try some typical corsican grub. The food was ok but really cannot stretch to use the word 'excellent'. The biggest frustration was with the service. The waitress was in the middle of taking our order when she noticed an old friend and left us to greet... More

I have been travelling for some years to Corsica, so I ate in at least 50 restaurants. Only two restaurants I visited got ever the '"excellent" review, U spuntinu is one of them. Traditional non foreigner oriented food is prepared here using the best ingredients of the island. I suggest you the menu de degustation. Try it and convince yourself.... More

Good traditional Corsican food , very friendly staff and the cook came several times to ask if we were satisfied with very thing . The large plate of Corsican specials is worth trying together with a desert it cost 24.50 euros as a set menu .

Unfortunately no tables prepared outside on the patio on this sunny lunchtime in late March so we ate inside in a very attractive dining room. The service was very attentive and friendly from a young woman. My husband had the Corse Assiate with delicious courgette baynettes, veal stew, cannelloni, aubergine & chestnut ragout, & mushroom risotto. I had the entrecote... More

Traditional home cooked food but very touristy restaurant - Choose the "grand assiette", it's a very tasty mix of good Corsican cuisine.

U Spuntinu could have everything to be a very good family-run restaurant, but it actually lacks something to rise above average, because not all the dishes are up to par and the service is hasty and confused. In front of the menu, most customers hesitate between two different set meals, the €23 "assiette géante" (giant course) and the €26 three-course... More

This restaurant is simply wonderful: delicious, fresh, hearty meals and friendly service. The courgette beignets with mint and the aubergine gratine with chestnuts are perfect for vegetarians looking for a traditional taste of Corsica. We cannot wait to return.
