Un semplice menu su lavagna appesa al muro per le poche semplici cose della cucina locale. Tavoloni conviviali che potresti dividere con chi non conosci ma che poi ci passi la serata, Servizio veloce, buona cucina e.....i dolci preparati giornalmente dalla figlia del titolare....golosa pasticceria. Long family style table that you may have to share with unknown guests....but that's fun,... More

We arrived with a group of 18 and were easily accommodated as it was just at 7 PM when they opened. Good thing as by the time we finished, they were packed. Portions were ample and the flavors were A+. The owner/waiter was a bit grumpy but he grew on us (or vice versa) as the evening progressed. All 18... More

A bit off the main road , not hidden but not on the main busy strip. This was recommended by a friend. We arrived without a reservation at about 7:00. We were seated immediately. The interior is cute, a simple osteria. The menu is in both English and Italian. The prices are very good for this town which can be... More

Amid expensive restaurants, the coperto often goes up to 3 euros per person, the restaurant takes only one euro. Tables were filled with locals with their dogs.

We stumbled upon this place when looking for a place to eat. It was fairly late in the night and this place convinced us as there were locals having their late night dinner. The simple dining room has oversized tabled that are shared by several parties. We started our dinner with pasta Trofie, tiny hand made pasta with green basil... More

Few dishes all really good. It's definitely been my favorite restaurant in town. It's the less "touristic" restaurant I visited there and I appreciated the genuine atmosphere, the delicious food and the kindness of the owner. They offer takeout! I did it once because the restaurant was really crowded and I didn't want to wait for a table! Maybe it's... More

A very nice place with solid food and swift service. Opening hours are also generous. The "Trofie al Pesto" is a very good choice from the menu!

I always come here on the first night arriving at SML. The staff are friendly, the atmosphere lively, and the food is incredible. The pesto lasagne is a firm family favourite as is the calamari, light and delicious and the sword fish. It's always busy, especially in the summer around 7-9pm so either book or arrive early. A great find.

We have had lunch here a few times and always been satisfied. A simple blackboard menu offering a handful of dishes provides enough choice for us and very pleasant and efficient service provides the perfect escape from the tourist traps. No views of the sea but we can manage without that while we enjoy our lunch!

Thank jrverne
