Reviewed 6 September 2011

we ate lunch here 3 times and each time our food was served promptly and was very tasty
drinks are reasonably priced
childrens portions are provided if requested
service charge of 1.5 euro inc so saves wokring out tip
eat inside as nicely air conditioned
only slow element was paying but we were in no rush
staff very friendly but not intrusive

“Disappointed”
Reviewed 4 August 2011

We wanted to try this place after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor, I have to say we were very disappointed, the food was very average but worst of all was the service, we had a small child and were provided with a high chair which was good but we felt quite unwelcome. maybe it was the language barrier, the owners didnt speak English very well but the young waiter spoke a little. We tried this place once and certainly didn't go again, we spent most of our meals at Cafe' Sikelia a bit further down the road, a much better choice.

“Great evening with a great ambiance and very nice and friendly waiters”
Reviewed 27 June 2011

We were welcomed very warm in this nice italian restaurant. The ambiance is relaxed, there were people from many different places, so not only italian people, but everyone was treated like a friend. The food was fresh and tasty, and later in the evening they made music which was quite amusing. When we left we got a very friendly goodbye. We will probably go back tonight.

“Great Food and Entertainment”
Reviewed 11 June 2011

This restaurant is great for family's and friends. The pasta and fish dishes are excellent. We ate a lunch and dinner there. At dinner time the owner and staff play guitar and sing. The guests join in the sing and dance. The staff make sure you have a great experience.

“Close to Hilton, better food elsewhere”
Reviewed 31 May 2011

The location mapa on TA os wrong, it is between the Hilton and their parking lot in a basement level with outdoor seating. They had a couple of guitar players going from table to table which were kind of cheesy. The owner personally visited each table and advised us on what to order and she was very nice and a good salesperson. But the food was average quality. There are better places to eat. Had pasta and a second course which were ok but not great. Ford the price you would have expected better.
