The food took forever to arrive and was not good quality...most likely frozen instead of fresh. No extra bread, and had to beg to get more water. The place was understaffed so it was no surprise the wait was long, and the waiter(only one!) did...More

Extensive menu, excellent house wine, family/local atmosphere. Priced very reasonably. Very busy---obviously a favorite of the locals. Very little English spoken, but no barrier to good food and good times!

The owner of Hotel Visconti made us a reservation. Very local crowd, no tourists, inexpensive, and fabulous seafood. The seafood antipasti was extraordinary. So was the dorado, the pizza and the house wine. A great last night dinner in Italia!

Recommended by Simone at Hotel Visconti, this is a neat place. It specializes in fish and seafood but has great pastas with game ragu sauces: rabbit, venison, boar, etc. Decent and cheap house wine. Apparently they do a big pizza business --they looked good but...More
