Had a very good meal here. Friendly service and excellent food & wine. The seafood was very good. Dessert was fine. A great place for long and lazy dinner

We sat there for a Sunday lunch. I ordered pizza and my wife ordered pasta. Pizza was OK, spaghetti with vongole also good, but the pistacchio sauce was bit too heavy for seafood in our opinion. What was bad is the waiting time - way...too long, people who came after us enjoyed their meals while we were still waiting and waiting. And at the end they made the mistake in our bill. Come on! Sorry to say but their service was the worst we experienced in Italy.More

This is a small but very efficient restaurant serving a variety of pizzas,meat & fish dishes. Food is very good and at reasonable prices.Most of the seating is outdoors but protected by a large tent with heaters for colder nights.

It was a public holiday (New Year's Day) and not a lot was open, plus it was out of the regular eating hours, so we were lucky to find a spare table in this restaurant, after thinking it was full but seeing a couple of...people leaving. They squeezed us in even though very busy. I tried something I would never normally try, and it was so delicious! Linguine with Pistachio Pesto and Vongole! So delicious! Also had 1/2 litre of the house wine (red) which was very good. My husband had the rather more conservative Steak and grilled vegetables. The vegetables were very minimal and probably not worth the money, but the steak was good. The boutique beer was also very good. Very happy with our choice!More

Great place to have lunch when touring Pizzo. Pizza and pasta bolognese were our best on our entire trip. Outdoor seating with good views, service was excellent, highly recommended!

Really delicious pizza. Very good size at a very decent price. It was nice sitting outside watching the world go by. The toilet facility in this restaurant could be better.

We ate here on a night away from our resort. We were certainly not disappointed. The food was absolutely delicious. The flavour and aroma just devine. We ate typical italian fare - pizza to start, fried calamari, linguini, risotto, and penne for mains. Whilst service...wasn't the quickest, we weren't in a rush. The restaurant was extremely busy and we were enjoying soaking up the atmosphere of a typical Italian evening in a busy town square. I would definitely recommend eating here - an Italian delight.More

My date got her plate after 10 minutes and I had to wait half an hour, so I had to eat alone basically. I asked the waiter for news about my plate and after 2 minutes it came, he said there was "a problem with...the oven" and apologized, but I would have liked to know that beforehand. In addition, my date asked for a salad and what the served was basically a badly chopped head of lettuce without anything. Kind of disappointed.More

We arived at 13:20 the restaurant was almost empty an we were wainting about 30-40 minutes for the first meal (gnochi with mussels, home made pasta with seafood, octopus salad, insalata mista). Than about another 40 minutes fo the second dish (fried calamari, insalata mista)....First meals were OK, but nothing special, fried calamary were chewy not good at all. Kind of dissapointed.More

We went for a late, lighter dinner. Great lively atmosphere on the main square. We had a pizza which was very good and a salad which was ok. Good service despite it being a very busy evening.

Ordered a pizza napolitana. Came with canned pitted black olives - in Italy! Chewy and pretty much inedible. Disgusting.
