The homemade gnocchi is delicious - like pillows of heaven that melt in your mouth. We sampled gnocchi throughout the region, and this was in the top 3.

Noisy restaurant, indifferent service (which is much better if you speak Italian) - average food - nothing creative, no vegtables except potatoes. No reason to go back

The restaurant appears to be a long standing family run operation, slightly in a bit of a time warp as cutting edge would not be the first words to come to mind. Place was quiet for a midweek evening and our waiter was not one to raise the excitement level. Very pleasant and efficient in his own quiet way though.
We shared a mozzarella, tomato and anchovy starter - good if a little light on the anchovy. We followed on with a salt baked fish, which came with a single baked potato (we were pleasantly surprised at how well an Italian kitchen could do baked potatoes as we haven't seen them offered in any other restaurant). The fish was well cooked but portion size was a little on the piccolo side.
Overall, competent cooking but not especially memorable. The cost of the meal felt a little high for what was presented.
Ladies have the pleasure of a rose presentation to look forward to on leaving the premises.

This was our favorite restaurant in Santa Margerhita. Very small family run business. Great value for the money. Try the frute de Mare salad.

Over-rated for the real quality you finally have in front of you, I would not go there anymore.
