Really good range of vegetarian food. Also you can choose the type of pasta for the pasta dishes which is something I have not come across elsewhere and nice for my wife who is not a big spaghetti fan. Service was good and food excellent.

The Antipasti starter was a bit over-sized, but delicious with plenty of variety. We both had the Frutti di Mare main, it was also good. It wasn't busy on the Sunday night, so service was quick. For some reason we had to ask for the...More

Reassuringly quite, except for the conversations of fellow diners. We were well served by the knowledgeable, and well mannered waitresses and waiters, and one felt like asking them to join you at the table. We returned two nights later for more perfection.

Great Italian food, good staff, clean and tidy. I had the meatballs which was really good. It is not right in centre of town but not to far out, next to the Villa Marina.

Meal served by lovely Itlalian lady from near Rome, who made us welcome on our first evening on the island for a week for walking and history. Sadly the meal was ordinary and did not match the surroundings. My chicken was just ordinary. So not...More

Decided not to eat at my hotel, so wandered out along the sea front. Almost gave up hope of finding anywhere when I came across this gem. A great, traditional Italian restaurant serving pizza, pasta, meat and fish courses. I had a fabulous Quatro stagioni...More
