Visited here in late October. We were the only guests at noon. By 1:30 (and, yes, we were still there) a few more tables had filled up. Incredibly slow service, even by Italian standards. (Not rude, just not around. Maybe they went somewhere else for lunch?) Merely adequate pasta, and a frankly terrible beefsteak. Stale bread. Really nothing good about... More

Lovely simple Italian food. I took seafood pasta. It looked delicious and smelled too, the taste was gorgeous. Very friendly staff. The small piazza is beautiful.

I order carbonara and it took quite long and was not good. More oil than anything else, onion and bacon in very uneven big pieces and missing cheese to make it creamy. Maybe the seafood is better but the pasta was definitely not.

We had dinner here in this little restaurant on the piazza during our post cruise trip in September. Pasta with clams and mussels, not too bad. Service was nice and waiters are kind. Food was average.

Their food is soooo tasty and delicious especially their Seafood Pasta... The staff and owner are very friendly even though they didn't speak English but they were all smiling and tried their best to understand us :) We went twice and were not disappointed..

I come here about once every two months for lunch and dinner. It is predictably decent. No nonsense. Pleasant owners family friendly. Simple unfussy menu. Not touristy. Mostly seafood dishes. Here at the seaside many restaurants serve only seafood in the summer. Far cheaper than in Rome BTW. Roman fish or crab is usually outrageously expensive.

Thank James1527
