Don't waste your time, money and appetite! Don't go!

We followed the trip advisor to go to this restaurant to have something a bit casual. But we didn't have anything good about this restaurant.

Food: The worst taste we tasted in Italy for sure. It is so normal even less than normal. Lucking of taste in the mouse. Nothing unique and special about the taste. I can cook even better. The meat dish is pretty boring.

Service: Chef seemed friendly and wore proper chef cloth. But waiter keep watching TV and very dull service. Nothing friendly about him and a bit messy on himself as well with his daily casual cloth without apron and white shirt.

Atmosphere: If we could have the table at outside, it could be different experience. But it was raining and still a bit cold. We took the table inside. TV was on. Staffs kept watching it. Big reglet we didn't leave there when we saw it.

It seems some people has had good experience. But somehow we had the worst experience in Italy. Because of the off season, they don't put much effort!?? Even taste is worse than their high-season!? We don't know they can be better if they are happy with full of people at the restaurant. If you are considering this restaurant, don't take any risk when you stay in such a beautiful place with many other restaurant option.

I'm disappointed to have to mark this down. We went on the basis of Christina S's review, especially in light of her recommendation for gluten free options. When we went, at around 7 on a Saturday night, we were the only diners, and remained so. The food was good (my schiaciatelle with seafood was excellent) but there was obviously no atmosphere and indeed the owners seemed a little fazed by us being there at all - almost as though they weren't expecting any custom. But most disappointingly, there was no gluten-free pizza or pasta, and no GF desserts either. On reflection, I wish we'd gone to Masaniello a third time.

Visited here on recommendation of the hotel for their pasta. Food was excellent and a good price. The pasta and onion sauce is excellent, although have your mouth wash handy when u get to your hotel!!
This restaurant was full with locals the night we visited which is always a good sign.
