“Skip the Piazza”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

We found it to bussy, to expensive and not at all like the real Island is. Better to go a bit further and have a drink at a nice restaurant up hill.

“Nothing special, and not a good dining location”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

It's crowded and the dining options are expensive (16 euro for salad, 30 euro for pasta, 5.5 euro for cafe), yet not noteworthy. The farther from the square you go, the more reasonable things become. Its is one of the main bus terminals. The buses are a great travel option on the Island.

“People watching”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

This piazza connects all the "shopping" streets. It is made up of 5-6 cafes where you sit outdoors and sip espresso, imbibe on alcohol and /or eat gelato or light fare.

“Busy”
Reviewed September 1, 2012

The town center. Busy and touristy. It is something to walk through but holds little appeal as a site on its own.
