“delicious seafood pastas”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2013

We had lunch at La Grotta Bar and Trattoria. I had the seafood spaghetti. It was very attractive, served with mussels in the shell, squid, anchovies, and a prawn or two. It was absolutely delicious. My husband had the spaghetti with anchovy balls and it too was good.

“Great Breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2013

Casual restaurant located after the fruit store coming up the street from the train on the main road (Via Colombo). Did not see any busy times to avoid. Had breakfast here on September 24th and 25th around 8:30 am. No wait to be seated. Drinks and food arrived shortly after ordering and were exactly what we ordered. The food was fresh and good. Service was average. Nothing bad, they were available when needed and we were served quickly. Under 20 Euro for a good breakfast for two.

They have free WiFi available at breakfast and the password is inside.

The focaccia is great.

“Great seafood”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2013 via mobile

We tried the seafood risotto for two. It was delicious as were the stuffed mussels. Location and service nothing to write home about but its definitely worth a try

“Below my expectations”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

We will forget easily this restaurant if we compare it with others around. The flamed pasta was very visually appealing but it was not appealing to my palate. The service was good but I cannot give to this restaurant more than two stars.

A great spot in the village. Tasty fresh seafood and pasta. We had the baked spaghetti which comes out flaming onto the table. It was so good!
