“Not good, not bad”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2012

It was a mixed experience, in that the position of the restaurant was really convienent, on the square in the old town. We were hungry after the ferry ride to the island and the shady outside eating area was very comfortable. The downside was that the grilled vegetables were very overpriced, and not well grilled at all. The mixed salad was pretty ordinary, with soft lettuce and insipid tomatoes. Quantities were miniscule. BUT the zuppa di pesce was really good, and would have fed 3 of us, if only we had known. Its a shame the waiter didn't explain things more (we speak Italian so it wasn't a question of language). All a bit lacklustre, and overpriced for lunch with no wine.

“Awful experience, really bad!!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2012

Awful: the fish was not clean (…I’ll avoid you the unpleasant details of a not clean squid…), and when we complained the waiters just said “yeah this is it”. I understand sometimes a mistake can happen, but they just showed a very pour attitude in customer service.

As mentioned by other, indeed the food and wine choice was very limited.

We were there late September (so not the most busy period).
