Been here before, just opened after a short unexplained closure, usually best to book as always packed. Waiter very good, explains menu & specials on offer. We had Italian starter for 2, meats, cheeses, olives, fritarta, salad & a few other things, excellent. Pasta for one main & gnocci for other, both very good although a bit to much on... More

You will have to make a reservation, this seems to be a very popular place, even if not easy to find or looking very inviting at first glance. But, the food really good, Italian as in Italy. Best meal we had in two weeks in this area. Good service. Enjoy!

The young couple who run this small ( about 30 covers) bistro deserve maximum praise for creating a unique atmosphere combined with superb value cuisine. The menu is not particularly extensive but as they operate from a kitchen no larger than a normal domestic sized space they work wonders. We visited 3 times during our holiday and weren't disappointed Indeed... More

Relaxed and nice atmosphere, but had to wait long time for first drinks since the waiter wanted to discuss so much with other customers (which is a good thing in a way). Linquines with sea food was good (not special), but lasagne was tastless - although it was made according to "grandmother's recipe". The esplenation was that they don't get... More

All were very happy with meal. Desserts were lovely. Presentation, taste and ambience were excellent and a very satisfied group left in our own time.Excellent, meal,... More

We just had our 49th wedding anniversary meal at First Love. It is the best Italian meal I have ever had. Fantastic food, excellent staff, friendly and helpful. Love this restaurant.

We visited first love a number of times before and loved it. This time, the food is still very nice, place is the same and I would highly recommend a visit. I would say the service has gone a little bit downhill, the lady who owns it didn't seem too interested and the experience was a little disappointing compared to... More

Made a reservation the same day no problems. Decided to go here because of the excellent reviews. We were allocated a table and served by a friendly waitress. The menu is small but good choices. Ordered a pasta carbonara and my partner a lasagne. While we were waiting for our meal a large hen party arrived, which in a small... More
