Food - I don't think I ever had a better Bruschetta in my life.

Good for the quality of food! We came back on our last... More

Two of the ladies that were with us in a group of 6 ordered a specific dish for it's contents. When arrived it was nothing as described in the menu.

A great last minute walk in lunch. Good food attentive service. Excellent home made bread. The only downside was a lack of any kids options so our 3 children had to share a plate of breaded chicken and a portion of pasta. All very delicious though and I am sure we will be back.

This place is my favorite in Portomaso. First they bring you a basket of bread, which you just can't resist! Even though, you better resist it, because what follows is usually even better. They have wonderful risotto and pasta. Whichever I tried was really good. Also the staff is kind.
