“Great food, great wine, great service, great view!”
Reviewed July 24, 2011

We went to Pulalli wine bar for a drink one evening, as they were fully booked, and so booked for the next evening - you HAVE to book, it's small but very popular. Service was superb and nice views of the piazza.

“So happy they fit us in!”
Reviewed July 15, 2011

We loved our meal at Pulalli Wine Bar last evening. The food was fresh and well cooked -- fantastic homemade pasta. Prices were reasonable and much better than many other places in the area. The location was charming - great to sit out on the terrace above the crowds. Sunset and views out the other side were not to be missed. Carmen was friendly and gave wonderful tips on the rest of the island. Plus, she makes a terrific tiramisu. We will be back!

“#1. REALLY?!?!?!”
Reviewed July 15, 2011

We just started using TA for planning our honeymoon. So far, the top rated restaurants and hotels have been very reliable; however, our experience at Pulialli was way off the mark. We made a reservation for the balcony table the night before and confirmed it in-person during the day - we were in the area. The staff seemed to be very accommodating and friendly. We were looking forward to our dinner. We arrived for our 8:30 reservation with only one other couple sitting at a table. Based on TA recommendations, we started with the anchovies (honestly, best ever - but ALL downhill - like a steep Capri incline - from there). We ordered spaghetti with zucchini and spaghetti with clams - average at best, and the Prawns listed on the menu. When the so-called prawns arrived they were, at best, small to average sized shrimp - not prawns, and even worse - under cooked! When our friendly waitress approached our table, we indicated the shrimp were not good. The'manager' came over, apologized and said, "the we only serve fresh shrimp." We know the difference between fresh cooked shrimp, and fishy smelly "fresh" shrimp. Pulalli served the latter! The manager apologized for the mistake of giving us shrimp instead of prawns, but ignored the fact that the meal was under cooked! They attempted to make it right, but removing the dish and brought our the prawns - which were 4 medium sized shrimp for 25 Euro! Upon leaving the restaurant we were shooed off as just another set of gullible tourists entrapped by an unreliable TA review and a table with a view. STAY AWAY FROM THIS PLACE.

The night before we went to TA's #2 on the list, and had a much more enjoyable experience!!!!!!!

“Very nice food, surprised at the price of the special though”
Reviewed July 12, 2011

Reading these reviews made us determined to find and experience Pulalli Wine Ba, and the experience was definitely enjoyable.

We had no reservation but they fitted us in, and the service was polite and warm.
The food was excellent, and the atmosphere charming.

The only thing that wasn't perfect was the price of the special. My fiance ordered the fish, and we were surprised to see on the bill that it was 29 euros. By comparison, the steak dish I had was 19, and other dishes less again. We felt like they should have mentioned that the special was significantly more than everything else on the menu.
