This is by far the worst Restaurant I ever visited. The children was served some stale bread with only cheese, which they called a pizza. My wife got rotten salad and meat slobs. My dish was so terrible that I only managed two bites, hen sendt it out. The waitress was nice and deducted a couple of euro on the overpriced food, but NEVER NEVER GO THIS PLACE!

Worst of 5 restaurants we ate. Waiter was rude. Did not even try to speak english, we ordered main course and got meat only. No patatoes or salad (and even as this may be the italian way of a menu he could at least had pointed this out); meat with sauce is 25 euro.beer is 5 euro. Far to much for this spot. Never again.

We stumbled across this restaurant on our first night and were surprised by just how cheap the place was (eg ?4 for a 10" pizza, 0.5l bottle of wine ?3.50!). It had a nice interior and was bustling. Service was good and the food was tasty. This was our fall-back restaurant whenever we couldn't find anywhere else to eat!

A group of six of us went to the Ponentina, on the recommendation of a friend, who was with us. He ordered an assortment of antipasti followed by an assortment of pasta. All of it was delicious and well done. My discovery and favourite dish was pasta caccio e pepe, a simple dish done to perfection. The pasta carbonara was also very good, the pasta al dente and the sauce delectable.
Do try to order outside of the set tourist menu, it is the best way to try something new and interesting.
