Our review is a bit biased because Don was recommended by close friends that loved the views from the Patio. We are here in off season so very quiet and gets cool and dark to early to sit outside.

Don was a great host with a smile to share and very patient with our lack of Italian.

We are not big evening eaters, especially late as we come from Canada and not used to multi course meals that are offered here at Ristorante's.

Don did not make us feel uncomfortable at all about only eating single courses and suggested perfect items for us to try. The second night we
arrived for dinner Don came out
with a fresh Amberjack (Ricciola) fish that we chose which they then split in two and pan seared with a simple seasoning that was fresh and delicious.

Don also recommended two local rosso vinos that were right to our tastes!

Yes we were biased, but left each night wonderfully satisfied!!

If we had to make an overall statement it is a fine dining experience with a small town sensibility.

Probably the best pizza in pizzo. And Tony was entertaining us with a voice that blows the roof away. Very friendly and welcoming place. We will definitely go back there next time!

We stayed in Borgonovo and went here as we were feeling lazy and didn't fancy the walk down to Pizzo centre - if we were staying in Pizzo this restaurant would definitely have been worth the walk up !!! We love Pepata di Cozze and so usually try this in every restaurant we go to - Don Diego's was by far the best, in fact it was so good we came back here for our last meal. Apart from the Pepata all of the other dishes we had were also very good, grilled fish, pasta and their pizza (lovely wood fired oven as you walk in).
