Located in the centre of the Corfu old city, provides a great view of the Easter proceedings. The service was very good despite the influx of many new customers at the same time.

Nino makes you so welcome. The food is fantastic. There is not just Italian food on the menu but classic dishes. From Mussels in white wine with chilli and lemon grass to steaks. Chocolate soufflé to die for. Plus his home made lemon and mandarin cielo. A must if you visit Corfu Town

Old fashioned ambience inside with classic wooden furnishings and small but spacious seating, combined with a large outdoor seating immediately opposite makes this restaurant with its central location a great choice. A varied menu of all the classic dishes we found that the food was very good, the wine to accompany it at a reasonable price and the service excellent.... More

It's funny because we also take refuge in this restaurant because of the rain on Sunday in the afternoon day 16/10, maybe we should have been side by side with DIva 19. Food was ok, we only ate pizza and were good, the service was friendly and the restaurant is very small but very beautiful.

Since visiting I've read several reviews that said the service was bad (I wish I'd read them before I went as it would have put me off). However during our visit the service was good and the staff were friendly. That's about as good as it got as it was the worst meal I can remember 'attempting' to eat. I... More

We were in Corfu town for the day and stopped by for something to eat. It was really quiet and we got served really quickly which was ideal for lunch. The food was lovely and staff friendly. Would recommend for lunch or drinks.

We had an enjoyable meal, pleasant waiters - in a great location! The square is lovely, popular but not crowded, historic buildings all around (pity the ornamental fountain wasn't working) and so pretty, with candles on each table. Despite other reviews, we found the service good even though the restaurant was full, and pleasant waiting staff (perhaps they'd read the... More
