“Good food, argumentative waiter”
Reviewed November 2, 2012

We have been to this restaurant about five times and the food has always been good, especially the antipasti. The last time we went with friends we ordered to share the antipasti as we were not especially hungry and it is huge. When the bill came we has been charged for four. When we queried it, they were having none of it and an embarrassing argument ensued, with no happy outcome, so I think in the future we will be giving the restaurant a miss. A shame as we like the food, but there are plenty of other lovely restaurants in the area with a better customer service ethos.

“Great value! Great food!”

I sat in the garden and enjoyed wine, food all at a great value. Pasta was exceptional! Tiramisu - delicate with a bit of almond

“Excellent”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

Everything at this restaurant is worth going there: the staff with the service they provide, the fact that there is very few tourists, but mostly local people, the quality of the food and the reasonnable prices. Would go back anytime.

“Excellent value for money”
Reviewed August 21, 2012

We tried this restaurant after a morning wandering around the Trulli village, upon a recommendation and we were not disappointed ! We had already decided not to have starters, but a bowl of olives and nutty bites along with a basket of bread starved off the hunger pains, then we had bruchetta presented on the house !! I had the taglitelle with salmon which was generous, filling and fresh. No pizzas at lunchtimes. The other members of the family had carbonara, lovely and creamy and spaghetti with sundried tomatoes and rocket, all just as nice !! We decided to top the meal off with tiramasu which were huge and very tasty. All in all, with 3 large bottles of water and coffee the bill came to less then 55 Eruos which was fantastic value, so good we are off again tonight.

“Excellent - but not as good as the neighbouring Fidelio”
Reviewed August 5, 2012

This was the first restaurant we visited on our vacation, and came away very impressed. In fact if it had been the only restaurant we visited - would have given it top marks.

Very generous antipasto - spaghetti alle vongole, pappardella with porcini mushrooms, pizza and lamb were all excellent. So why not top marks?

I gues not quite as inventive or refined as Fidelio - though still absolutely top notch.

Highly recommended
