“Nice food & ambience and great for people-watching”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2013

We came across this place because we liked its look of relaxed elegance. It's on a pedestrian street in the centre of Grado and it's also great for people-watching. The food was good and well-presented and the portions are ok but not too generous. We ordered the local aperitivo, spritz aperol, which was also very good. We tried the caprese salad, roast beef, roast chicken, mixed grilled fish, grilled squid, melanzane parmigiana and fritto misto. We didn't order desserts but they brought us a lovely fresh peach sorbet to end the meal. The staff were cheerful and made us feel welcome but they probably should refrain from making judgmental comments when foreign guests ask to add something like peperoncino to their food!

“Best meal in Italy (so far)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2013

We stumbled across this restaurant, and we are glad we did.

We ordered caprese salad, lasagne, wienerschnitzel, spaghetti a la mar, and several types of dessert, plus wine and beer, and everything exceeded expectations. The staff were unfailingly helpful and did everything they could to overcome language barriers. Grado is a wonderful, serene city, and this was a great place to sit and enjoy the scene along with great food.
