“Just as well we weren't in a hurry!”
Reviewed October 28, 2013

Came across Il Corsaro when looking for somewhere to have lunch. It took over an hour to prepare and serve two plates of pasta with seafood. This was something of a mystery as the restaurant was only half full. Perhaps there weren't enough people in the kitchen? Once the food arrived though, I couldn't fault it for flavour, freshness, presentation and the quality of the ingredients.

“how long can you wait for food?”
Reviewed August 21, 2013

If your answer is more than an hour then go for it. It took them to serve us more than an hour and all we asked for was mozerella and tomato salad and tuna fish. The service is super slow. The venue is ok as well as the food but it is not worth it! Save your money and time

We had mussels, linguini with vongole, salmon and octopus, all very tasty. Friendly staff who gave good service. Nice tables in the narrow alley gives let you sit and watch all people passing by
