This Italian restaurant was crowded as we walked past it. As it seemed to be the only one open for dinner around where we stayed, we popped in. The atmosphere was homely and the team members appeared to be enjoying themselves whilst at work. It also seemed to us that it was a family-run business. The menu came in 2... More

A bit outside from the city center, it is more a local place than a touristic one. It is a huge restaurant and all tables were taken or reserved. I think locals only. The food was really good, specially if you compare it with some restaurants in the center, serving mostly to tourists. Pizza was good, as well as salads... More

The restaurant was also visited by locals and was well visited - good sign, we thought. Unfortunatelly only a good start. After the appetizer i waited 40+ minutes for my calzone. My partner ate her gnocchi and i sat there waiting. I tried to conctact the service twice, but no reaction at all. When we wanted to leave, my plate... More

Excellent appetizers based on fried coccoli, ham and burrata. Pizza in the average. The place is a pretty big room, good for large groups, no privacy allowed. Price is higher than expected: 1 appetizer in two, two pizzas, 2 drinks, 1 coffee for 45 €.

Although the service was really good and welcoming, we received calzone and focaccia burnt. We also didn't like the additional fees for "coperto". Considering the quality of food, it is definitely overpriced. We do not recommend.

I honestly have nothing negative to say about the food serves here. Delicious. The pasta with the lobster was amazing, as was the pizza. One of us got the steak dish and it was cookes to perfection and the quality of the meat was very high. Out of the tourist zone too so prices are what you should be paying.... More

We are at a near hotel and the rest is very good. We went at saturday and it was plenty of italian people, we were the unique foreigners. Good attention, excelent food I ate pizza and it was very good but my wife's calzone was incredible. Highly recommended if you are searching for an italian rest.

Fresh and delicious seafood with great service and reasonable prices!!! The pizzas are baked fresh in a wood burning oven and are delicious.

This is the best pizza in town! We eat here at least once a week and not just for the great pizza. They also have great fish dishes, especially "primi" like their crab-stuffed ravioli which is to die for! In fact I have never had a bad meal here. It is a family-run place and the service is quick and... More
