Five stars are not enough to describe this lovely neighborhood restaurant. Our family of three hiked up several staircases on the search for this elusive spot. When we finally found it we almost weren't able to stay because we had not made reservations. However the wonderful chef and hostess suggested we return in half an hour. It was so worth... More

Not the easiest to find and looks nothing from the outside but wonderfully interesting food and a very good wine list, tried 2/3 local wines we had never heard of! Interior deco again nothing to write home about but very friendly and attentive service. Would certainly go back again and recomend to any food lovers.

When we told Alberto he said, 'the first time i went there I was afraid to take my wife and children in. Then I got to know Massimo. Trust me, you will love... More

Not fancy or elegant, but a warm & comfortable neighborhood place. No menu or prices in sight, but we trusted the staff and were not disappointed. My appetizer was a plate of mixed cold fish (an assortment of 6 different fish preparations - all excellent) & my wife had 2 different types of breaded scallops which she rated "very good."... More

This small neighbourhood restaurant full of locals was a real surprise. We were welcomed inside by our friendly host. There was no menu and due to our lack of Italian one of the locals helped to translate. We had really delicious scallops to start and amazing prawns and mixed seafood for main. It is a simple seafood restaurant which has... More
