“Good and a bit different”
Reviewed October 12, 2012

We ate at polpetteria in October. The polpetteria are small balls of stuff which are its speciality. My wife had the fish of the day grilled which was large and not hugely expensive. The restaurant is very busy with lots of Sicilians and that's a good sign. We ate outside which was pleasant as it was still hot. its in the same street as Sale which was also recommended to us but we didn't have a long enough stay to try.
only downside was that only one waiter had good Engish and for some reason we ended up with our allocated waiter, the maitre d' and the trans;ator all gathered round which was a bit intimidating.
House wine was good as was the steak that I had. Good solid mid level restaurants, a bit different from the usual trattoria.

“Unusual concept - great food”
Reviewed August 31, 2012

This restaurant offers a wide range of polpette, both meat and fish based. We had the mixed meat and mixed fish, which were both very good.

“Good!”
Reviewed August 30, 2012 via mobile

Good food, cooked with attention to detail. Pasta al dente and well seasoned, pizza with nice base and quality ingredients. Overbearing but generally well intentioned service.
