Restaurant somewhat hidden off the main boulevard and inconspicious front. Difficult to get a table on Friday evening end of July and left tel number, but Alberto (who speaks good english) called and arranged one. Simple setting, but excellent food paired w good local wines. Try the suggestions off the menu; tuna tartar, tagliata of tuna, etc. prices in line w quality. Highly recommended.

My wife and I ate an early dinner (7:30 pm) at this recommended restaurant. It was a cold day and we were looking for hot soup. This restaurant serves a local traditional soup made with fava beans and vegetables. We ordered two bowls, plus bread, beer, and wine. At 10 euros per bowl it was substantially overpriced (that's $27 for American readers--for two medium bowls of bean soup). The soup was fine but nothing special. We wouldn't order it again. The bread and wine was excellent. The service was friendly and attentive. Only tourists in the restaurant. No locals, which is somewhat revealing. They also charge a "coperto"-a cover charge of 3 euros per person.

Pleasant experience, the staff and the cook were extremely attentive but I have to admit that, as it may happen from time to time, my own expectations were higher than the experience itself. The relation quality/price was average. The food was nicely presented and overall of good quality but not suprising in terms of freshness and taste. No negative remark to be underlined but "not my favourite plate of tuna" in town neither.

The service and food presentation here are a cut above that found in most other restaurants for a price which is not really that much more. This place specializes in tuna which it serves in a myriad of ways.

We loved the food so much that we came back the next day!
We were 5 and ordered different dishes, all tasted amazing and were so fresh!
I personally had the homemade pasta, a vegetarian dish, simply incredible!!!
Service is good, the chef is very friendly and stop by every table to make sure all is well.He brang me a special cheese with a grade instead of Parmesan for my pasta, so nice of him and delicious!!
This place really deserve the highest note for the food quality!! And it's a very good value for money too! don't miss it!
PS: The restaurant might seems umpty or even close when you get in but you have to go upstairs, that's where all the tables are :)
