I went to this restaurant a couple of time already, mainly every time I go back to Italy for my holiday. The food is really amazing (even my grandad likes it). The menu is really simple and reflect the characteristic cousine of the region. The staff is very friendly and the cook is often next to the tables talking with the costumers.
I can't wait to book my next meal hoping the cook has made his nice 'Basil's Liquor'

I'd been told about this place that serves 'amazing food' that is very inexpensive so thought I'd give it a try. As a woman alone, in the dark, I really didn't enjoy the walk there. The location is in one of the less salubrious parts of town
I arrived soon after opening and my request for a table for one, in a virtually empty restaurant, was greeted with 'you'll have to be quick' . Assuring the waitress that would be the case I was allowed to be seated
I do not expect to have my menus translated into English but it was quite difficult to follow the menu, which is not written down anywhere . There were 4 starters and 4 mains to choose from
My starter of homemade ravioli filled with prawns, decorated with mussels and swimming in a courgette sauce was quite good. Rather too much sauce which was a rather unattractive shade of khaki but tasted fine
For main I had sea bream, good quality, with potato, tomatoes and black olives. Again, really quite good just not memorable. I wouldn't rush to have it again
The pistachio tiramisu was excellent and this coming from somebody who doesn't do desserts. House red wine could have been better but in its defence was cheap
An enjoyable evening that didn't break the bank

The place is purely authentic: the food is amazing, everything is freshly cooked. The service is very good, the stuff is very friendly and the location makes you feel like home. We highly recommend this place, if you are looking for an authentic experience. Gratie to the cook :)
