The restaurant is very cute and has a wonderful atmosphere, however the food is at best average and the prices are awfully high for San Vito where you can find way better food for way less money. We ordered one appetizer (to share), two main courses and 0,5l of house wine and paid 75 euro for all of this, which is pretty ridiculous. One of the main courses (a pasta dish) also completely lacked salt which is pretty much a cardinal sin when cooking pasta. Some of the staff members were very welcoming and friendly and others pretty rude, so service was a bit of a mixed case as well. For a place this wonderful aesthetically and atmospherically I was really disappointed.

We chose this restaurant mainly because they offer a small selection of dishes each day, which means it should be fresh and interesting. And it was. I don't think I've ever had another meal like it - proper local cuisine. You get a variety of starters then a very substantial main course. All of it was excellent and strangely exciting. My only complaint was that we were served too much food. But, it's fine as we took home some of the excess to eat over the coming days. We are intending to return in a couple of days and will just share an order. The desert was also lovely, the house wine was also very good and the effervescent water even had a decent bit of fizz in it!
I'd definitely recommend this place if you are looking to sample some really interesting food. Probably not for you if you just want the same old same old.
(The waiter even offered to turn the music down without my asking! That's a first!)
The restaurant is wheelchair accessible.

There are some critical reviews i saw, but i had dinner in some very good restaurants in san vito and corallo was the best. No menu indeed, but that guarantees fresh food and typically good food. Antipasti was great, best i had over here. The raw tuna was well balanced with saltiness and lemon, something other places got wrong. The pasta was excellent. Followed by fish that was fresh and tasty. Granita at the end, light and perfect. Bill for 2 including wine: 80 euros. Not a cheap place, but excellent value for money. Staff did a good job.

So forget the critics, this is a solid place to have good food, maybe the best in town.

We were recommended this eatery by local friends and were attracted by the beautiful courtyard setting. The menu is fixed (Euro 30) which includes an assorted antipasta and either two tastes of pasta/ cous cous, or a main course of fish. The food was good but the service felt a bit rushed.
