We visited Papa Rex Restaurant after a long day of sight seeing and did not disappoint with its yummy pasta dishes and pizzas that completed the kids. Prices are reasonable and would recommend it to others. Very good service by Steve and their staff. Good wine to top it off 🍕🍝😋

All of which... More

Decent pizza and pasta. I would give them a 7. The place was close to our Residence. Better than the restaurant next to it!

Alessandro recommended a very delicious wine, sweet and soft just... More

Dear Sir/ Madame For the description you give i am convinced you are talking about another establishment whose name is almost the same as ours (only without the "X") we don't charge for cover or special areas of the restaurant and have not have vegetables in oil on our menu. We pray you (if the action is possible) to cancel... More

What a hidden delight ! We stumbled upon this gorgeous restaurant by chance but continued to visit throughout our stay. The food is without doubt far superior to any other restaurants we tried. So we were amazed to find it was actually one of the cheapest as well. The staff are friendly welcoming & nothing is too much trouble especially... More
