We booked a table at this place for two people, because the night before we were turned away because it was packed. We arrived and our table was reserved and we were quickly seated, and had our waiter come over and explain the suggested menu in English. We settled on a beef carpaccio appetizer and parmigiana and spaghetti main. Our first impression is that the portions are overly large, we are taking American portions at a Texas eating competition. The parmigiana, came stuffed with monk fish and a size of creamy white rice in mint. The idea of fish in a parmigiana sounded good and it was pitched by the waiter, however, I'm afraid the fish was almost bad and not any close to fresh, we took one bite and turned it away. The shrimp spaghetti smelled "humid", which we think is due to the homemade pasta. However, there was no flavor in it and the shrimp again seemed from the frozen variety. Our check came at 80 euros inducing 2 glasses of red wine. Our main cost 25 euro each which is a bit absurd given that it doesn't seem like fresh seafood. You better off try other restaurants in Bastia, this place has a bogus rating...

We arrived at about 8pm without a reservation and sat outside on the terrace. Our host, who may have been the manager, was extremely knowledgeable on all of the dishes and explained most of the menu to us as we don't speak any French. She made many well placed suggestions and we both chose fresh pasta dishes which were delicious!
Prices are reasonable and they do half size pasta dishes for an entree.
I would definitely recommend a visit. If you're after authentic, fresh Italian food.

Very OTT. Expensive for what it was. Wine wasn't that good for how much it cost,extortionate! Rather a lot of garnish on the plate. Just ok but not mouthwateringly delicious. On my plate fish had a crust of potatoes with more potatoes on the side. What's that all about?

Referred to this restaurant by our host in Bastia as a good option for an evening meal and she was not wrong!!
The service was incredible with the waitress/owner taking the extra time and effort to explain the entire menu in English - a luxury not available to us elsewhere on the island. Also ensured we knew which local wines would accompany our meal selections.
Delicious and superbly presented dishes. Possibly the best meals we have ever had at a restaurant. We both strolled back to our accommodation blissfully replete and feeling a part of the local culture.
Reservations recommended.

We were served by the head waiter who clearly had enthusiasm for her profession. The flavours were robust and ingredients of a high standard. It was our best meal on Corsica.
