Low lighting, a little entertainment by some buskers and a quick karaoke song by the owner helps create a good atmosphere. The pasta dishes where fresh and served timely, the wine recommendation was perfect for both price and quality. Would happily go back.

The restaurant was built on the ruins of an ancient Roman Villa, protected by ancient walls, a delightful citrus garden. Inside you can enjoy our dishes looking at archaeological finds from the 1st-2nd century AD. BC Our specialty is the fish quality, always fresh, the friendliness of our staff. We are waiting for you, thanks.
