“Lovely Staff, good athmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2013

We were staying at an hotel just a few minutes away from this resturant, although the menu was in Italian they were happy to transalate for us . The food was very good and reasonable, and the house wine was excellent at 6euros for a litre.They seemed to apprieciate my husband trying out his limited Italian on them, because unlike other tourists at the end ot the meal 2 bottles of liquers were placed on the table for us to help ourselves too. According to my Italian friend they usually only serve liquers in the bottle to Italians, not Tourists.

“Great little family run restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2013 via mobile

This is close to Hotel Athena where were were staying. We did not have a reservation but were early birds. The waitress was very friendly and spoke English and explained the menu as it is in Italian. The spaghetti was nice and fresh. Veal was sliced thinly and there was lots of it. Vegetables were ok. Pork was very tasty also. Nice family run restaurant full of locals. Very reasonable price for three adults E68. Oh and coffee was excellent. Complimentary amaretto and grappa was a lovely touch to end our lovely meal.

“Excellent service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2013

This restaurant was an easy walk from our hotel.We were seated downstairs and served quickly and efficiently. The menu in Italian only but we were happily given assistance and recommendations. The food was generous, tasty and home made. The atmosphere was friendly with other diners and we were soon chatting away.Complimentary grappa and amaretto and good house wines made up a most enjoyable evening.

“Eat gnocchi”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2013

Lovely little restaurant with reasonable prices and delicious food. Have the gnocchi with the chef's "secret" sauce and anything with pork. Free amoretto and grappa caps off the meal nicely. Try some biscotti with sweet wine. Enjoy!

“Great osteria”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2013 via mobile

Tasty food, complimentary amaretto and grappa at the end. Great prices and good house wine. Not fancy at all but it's got the whole classic historical sorta thing going on. I'm sure it's been family run for ever and almost everything was homemade.
