We had to wait almost 2hrs before our food finally arrived. It was busy when we got there but at least 6 tables that arrived after us got there food before us. There are plenty of other places to eat in the square. You're better off going to any of them.

We enjoyed an early dinner on the patio. We had a shrimp pasta and enjoyed the fact the heads of the shrimp remained on. It added to the great flavor of the sauce. We also enjoyed a small Pizza. I thought the flavor of the pizza was good but I did not care for the chewy bland crust. We would... More

This is a way too touristic place to go for dinner... They will take to many people (was there with 6 with reservation and they placed us at a table of 4), making it too crouded and service might go slow / some things are forgotten / etc. It's definitely not a bad restaurant, just not one of the bests...

We visited this place on an evening without reservation. We were lucky to find a table. The pasta with seafood was tasty and fresh. We think it's good quality for price.

Menu was available in english and possibly more translations too. Service was excellent, friendly and we were not pestered. Food was good and varied. Atmosphere was calm, yet lively. Best of all the dog was allowed inside or out, our choice. Stumbled upon by chance as we were late finding food, mist places shut by 9pm.
