Sweet place, welcoming staff, great food. Although one can get just pizza or pasta we couldn't resist the set meal. Fabulous salad with raw tuna, pasta with clams and a wonderful fresh ingredient pizza. Thirty bucks. And worth it.

The best food in contadora can be found in this restaurant. You need to book in advance. Piero is a character in itself and he'll make sure you have a great dinner at his place.

All items hand prepared by Chef Piero. Each day the menu is different depending on what the fresh catch of the day is.

Fortunately just next to our hotel we found this Italian restaurant, which offers great food, I had twice a salad with fish carpaccio style, pasta and a pizza. A nice glass of Italian Wine with it. Supply and demand, so the price is unexpectedly high...More

I am not sure if they have a website. Gerald sub-leases the restaurant to some main land people. The food is very good. Order the corvina fish if available.

It is a new restaurant on the Island of Contadora - much needed to expand the choices. I would like to share this gem as it is tucked away in the residential neighborhood and new.
