Staff was amazing and very friendly. The owner actually sang a few Elvis songs as I enjoyed my perfectly cooked veal cutlets and anchovy appetizer.

This is a decent restaurant in an attractive garden. Service is pleasant and the food - mostly fish - is competently executed. However, it is about 20 per cent overpriced. Consequently, I would not visit again.

We got a table - that was a bonus on a busy Friday night. Service was great, food was excellent. Our appetizers and main dishes were delicious. It is very popular with locals so it is a very positive sign. Highly recommend.

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.
