“Good value typical restaurant”
Reviewed November 26, 2012

A restaurant which seemed popular with locals and tourists with plenty of space (terrace room, and upstairs). It got quite crowded. Food was enjoyable without being exceptional. Prices reasonable : 56€ for 2 courses and wine by the glass, 36€ for a lightish lunch of pasta and desert. Waiters were helpful.

“Lots of Menu Choices Make it Easy to Go Wrong”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

This is a bustling place with efficient service and a wide variety of menu choices. The problem is that a large number of possibilities brings with it the risk of ordering a suboptimal dish. Our pastas were all right if not outstanding, but the fresh tomato appetizer was disappointingly bland (the flavorless tomatoes reminded me of what one typically finds in American grocery chains). Desserts seem to be popular, and since you can see many of them in a glass case by the cash register, you can order one and know in advance what you'll be getting. Service is efficient, and prices are moderate. Given what other reviewers have said, I assume that we might have had a better experience had we gone back and tried some different dishes (the fish at a table next to us looked quite appealing). But for a short stay in Ravenna, once was enough.

“Great food, good atmosphere and good for veggies too.”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Although the restaurant was full and busy the service was efficient and friendly. There's a good selection of generous servings and an extensive wine list, Also a good choice for vegetarians - even with a secondo listed, the swordfish carpaccio was delicious as well.

“Probably the best fish restorant in Ravenna”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

Excellent food quality!
Good choice of fresh fish, " a point" cooked, and nice plate dressing. Also side-dishes are very tasteful and make the meal complete.
The white wine of the house in caraf is OK. Flexibility for ordering half-portions of dessert(s).
Quick and correct service despite a full place.

Reservation is recommended. Specify if you want a place in- or outside, since inside places are limited when weather turns colder. The place was fully-booked till late in the evening.
Closed on Thursday.
We enjoyed dinner early october.

“Best meal in Ravenna”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

This place was packed but rightly so. They went out of their way to find us a table. The food was original & fresh, with a very extensive menu. It was great value for money & by far the best meal I have had in Ravenna.
