Would not recommend eating here. We we're treated as second class citizens, probably because we are tourists and not Italian. Our Italian neighbors received olive oil, salt and pepper with their bread, we had to ask twice before only receiving olive oil. The 'boss' or...More

In this area almost all restaurants look like the typical tourist traps and so does this, but the quality was much better than initially expected. We had a seafood mixed pasta that was actually really good. The waiters are somewhat loud but than can be...More

Great restaurant, lovely atmosphere. Food was very, very good; and considering the disappointing prices we'd found elsewhere on the island (Golfo Aranchi), we felt it was very good value for money. Service was excellent, waiters had time to answer questions about the menu even though...More

Nicely presented food in a friendly atmosphere and atmospheric rooms (inside). The waiters showed great humor and made the best out of the congested situation and our kids not being the tamest ones. Very positively noted was the vegetarian menu. Generally the food was typical...More

Restaurant looks nice but that's it! Staff unfriendly, prices for food and drinks very expensive, portions small and not worth it! We ate better in a Snackbar and that's not a joke! Unfortunately I need to give 1 Star....for me 0 Stars! Not recommend it!

Decided to eat here after an evening of wandering around the old town, sat outside which is a little challenging as the flagstones under the tables are very uneven but it was worth the effort to hold on! Had seafood pasta for a main course...More

Food, vine and staff🖒 Great pasta. Absolutely worth to try. We are going back for another great time.

The food was ok, maybe a bit too expensive. We found the service to be a bit too invasive, the waiters were constantly near us and also took away bread and cheese without even asking. Camerieri costantemente presenti al limite dell'invadente; bisognerebbe cercare di evitare...More
