This restaurant was recommended to us by various people in the area. It does not look that inviting from the outside. Once inside it is clean and comfortable. The menu looks very good but the prices are very high. The starters started at about 15 euros,I picked one for20 euros with fish and lobster but expected more than a thimball... More

Had a special offer for a 4 course tasting menu. Was really looking forward to a lovely meal. Got a very impersonal reception when I produced my offer receipt. The décor was not inspiring either. WE were given the 4 courses without any information on what we were getting. Any previous tasting menus we had we were always given an... More

We were the only foreigners, I think, when we had dinner. A coincidence, maybe, but the restaurant was full and all customers were middle age and above families. The owners knew them. We ordered the same local dishes that the others did and ended up having a delicious dinner. Prices were reasonable. The only problem is that the menu was... More

I went to the bathroom and found it dirty (urine on the seat) which I deem unacceptable for a high class establishment. The fish wasn't very fresh (I still haven't digested the... More

despite a tiny fruit fly who kept flitting around, everything was pretty perfect - excellent focaccia and fish - tonno with balsamic was heavenly with red onions on top - won't forget it - my husband had Dory - both wonderful with a bit of gorgeous white wine - superb freebie sweets- friendly waiter altogether really nice ..

The place is very cosy and comfortable; the 'chateaubriand' was perfectly cooked, between rare and medium (I did not needed to ask for ...) and served with a good grain mustard.

We visited this restaurant as it is a member of the Buon Ricordo Association. We found the service attentive but impersonal. Likewise the food whilst of good quality was somewhat lackluster in presentation. The decor was also a bit impersonal. This probably a place more suited to business lunches than for people like us on holiday seeking a memorable night... More
