The restaurant that we planned to go to was full so we cruised the old town & decided to stop here. As it was cooler outside we asked for an inside table...We were brought into an amazing place with greenish walls & nice lighting from wall sconces. As spagetti bolognese wasn't on the menu we asked the waiter if he... More

While the food is very good, the staff was overworked and slow. The tables are really close and if, as am I, smokers bother you, you may have to reconsider this location.

Attended had pasta with broccoli and prawns very nice a beer and she had scaloppin a sparkling water bottle of arneis the total $64 euro. The staff friendly and quick service nice outdoor area maybe a little to pricey for the end result. The area is in the square so you pay for that. Nice clean food and service.

Very disappointing, food well below par, my pizza was a tomato mush, partners sea bream also flavourless and soggy. Staff in attentive and management rude. Noticed two tables leave without eating, one family was given wrong food and manager was very rude

Good food. But the staff were very unfriendly and seemed disinterested. Service was fast and efficient but attitude of staff made the place from good to average!

Came here twice, once to get take away pizza as I was staying in the square and second time for a loner meal. Both times the food was great and the service was very friendly.

Great location amongst other restauarants. Outdoor seatings perfect in the summer. Ordered seafood pasta it was just average, however the pizza was very good. Good service from the staff too.

What impressed my wife and I when looking for a good local restaurant that covered our tastes was finding one that took the trouble to provide a complete translation in English of the menu. Whilst providing a typical selection of Italian pizza and pasta dishes there was also a good selection of alternative cuisines A good selection of local wines... More
