We booked this restaurant due to its high rank on Tripadvisor but like many Restaurant in San Teadoro it had mixed reviews. The restaurant was very welcoming with initially a very attentive service. We were allowed to try the wines before buying and the waiters...were helpful. The food was well cooked and good quality (swordfish and steak ordered). Toward the end of the evening as the restaurant got busier, the service dwindled and we had to wait a long time for our bill or a waiters attention. Overall, I’d recommend a visit, the food is good quality and the staff friendlyMore

This is the worse fritura mista di pesce I ever had. It was tasteless, very small and had one single onion tempura(which they called vegetables). Also overpriced.

My wife and I enjoyed dinner here in September. The Italian food was of a high quality and the staff were very attentive. Our table was on the elevated terrace, providing nice ambience on a warm evening.

Very dissapointed with this highly rated restaurant, taste-less fish and under cooked veal. High prices for poor food.

We had a ridiculously good meal here! The wine list was super comprehensive and we had an amazing local sparkling wine. The food was incredible! My husband enjoyed insanely delicious lamb jobs and I had an amazing seafood soup. I also had linguine with spider...crab that I will never forget. My two kids were being absolute nutters and we grabbed our check early to leave. I was honestly kind of embarrassed. The owner came out to say goodbye and told me that he was a father, and I shouldn’t feel bad. It was all together an incredible experience.More

This restaurant is just outside the center across the bridge. Because it is not in the center the food is better and more authentic. The service here is excellent, very attentive and quick. We had the degustation menu: 4 courses with water, a matching glass...of wine and coffee after for 55 euros. Good tuna tartare with sparkling wine. Good red mullet tortelli with vermentino. The fish (ombrina) was a bit dry but very nice with the caponata and a good match with a different, fuller, vermentino. To finish you can pick any dessert from the menu and it comes with a sparkling Muscat. Reservations recommended.More

A very lovely place with delicious (albeit a little on the small side) dishes. A nice selection of wines. Superb service. Booking in advance is a must.

We ate here twice on our holiday as it was near our hotel and the staff were lovely and the food was delicious both times that we went. Well worth a trip just outside the centre of San Teodoro.

An haute-cuisine restaurant in San Teodoro. Fresh seafood, homemade pasta, great pizza. The staff is very quick and helpful. Great selection of local wines. Strictly recommended! But book in advance, cause it’s always full.
