We ate here a few times, lots of choice on the menu. Pizzas fresh and tasty and bruschetta was so good! Really quick service and they provide blankets if there is a nip in the air (very windy the first night we arrived).

Stumbled on this place for lunch. I had gluten free vegetable soup which was delicious, my husband-tuna salad. Both yummy and cost 15euro all up. Prompt service and friendly staff, nice views from outside.

Food was so good! We ordered shrimp salad (which could have less parmesan..) and pomodoro pasta and it was delicious! Price was cheap and the view most amazing... If you go, go to the upper terrace!! So amazing view.

The pizza, wine and tiramisu we had were good, really good but perhaps did not wow. What really made us happy was the excellent service. Despite a full restaurant in high season our waiter was never more than a look away and we got our...More
