“Worst yet in Italy”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2013

Seriously.... I didn't think service could get any worse in Italy... not to mention the food. My wife and I ate here for lunch after looking around the waterfront and we were very disappointed. I ordered the grilled calamari, which consisted of one small squid grilled. It tasted bitter and was served with three pieces of wilted lettuce. The fried calamari my wife ordered was respectable, but not the grilled version. Trying to actually get the bill was like begging. After asking for the bill I had to go up twice to remind the waiter and was waived away, as he obviously had more important clients. There are plenty of other places to eat on the waterfront, so pick another. Surely it wouldn't be as bad as this tourist trap.

“well, well...”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2012

what should I say: typical tourist trap. Or at least it felt and tasted like that.
Gnocchi Bolognese were partially cold and the grilled gamberoni raw. Service was too slow even though the restaurant was not very full.

“Good family restaurants”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2012

Very good value for money which is true on the entire island.
As always fish tomatoes and pasta and local white wine which is excellent no need to drink other expensive bottles

“OK food - service...”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2012

the food on the restaurant is great - no problem. we ate there once, and had a reservation for the second night. when arriving one of the waiters tried to put us inside, simply ignoring that we had an outdoor reservation. it was like he just didnt like foreigners!
