Excellent pasta dishes with good portions at reasonable prices. The staff are firendly and seem to know many of the customers very well. It was recommended by the owners of the agriturismo that we stayed in and we were not disappointed.

Food was good but portions were quite small compared to what us Maltese people eat. Fries and vegetables have to be ordered apart as if you order only chicken you will only be served chicken. No butter available with bread only olive oil.

This is a great little local restaurant, very popular with locals and families. We ate there almost every night whilst staying at the Casale Romano hotel, just down the road.
They open from 7pm and are closed on Mondays. We sampled many differrent dishes on their menu and each one was a delight. The local sausages were delicious, flavoured with wild fennel, as were the pizzas, each hand shaped and cooked in their wood fired oven. The 'polpette con limone', 3 little meat patties flavoured with lemon, was fantastic.The local vino rosso was excellent value at on 4euro for a litre, but don't be put off by the price, it is emminently drinkable and goes well with the food.
Appetiser portions were generous, the price reflects the size of the plate, All pasta, pizza and meat dishes start from about 5 euro with sides (salads/chips/bruschetta etc) starting from around 2.50 euro. The meat dishes do not come with anything - sides must be purchased separately. On our first night we had 2 meat dishes, 2 salads, chips and a half litre of wine plus a beer; with cover charge included it came to 21euro for 2 people. Great value. Service is freindly and efficient and all meals, although freshly prepared from scratch, were quick to arrive. The staff do not speak alot of English but they are very approachable and with a basic Italian phrase book and their willingness to help we managed to communicate very well.
The atmosphere was very informal, no music playing but instead Italian TV on 2 TV's located on different sides of the restaurant.

We recently stayed at the Casale Romano hotel, but walked to this place nearly every night. The staff were very friendly and welcoming, and the place is clearly popular with locals for family parties, takeaways etc. Pizzas came from a wood burning oven, and the pastas included some local specialities eg. maccheroni Norma and penne with anchovy and wild fennel. It was very unpretentious, and good value with pizzas and pastas ranging from 5-7 euro.
