This restaurant offers authentic Italian food in a nice environment located on one of Bastia's squares. The lady in charge performs her job with an enthusiasm and concern for her guests, whom I have rarely experienced in any restaurant in any country. She takes her time for each guest, explains the menu carefully and makes you feel very welcome. The food was very good. All the pasta is homemade and the chocolate ice cream is to die for. We also ordered tiramisu for desert, which was a little disappointing, but the food generally kept a high level.. The fact that the food is a little bit on the expencive side and that it not keep the 100% top level results in a four and not five star rating from me. But, by all means this dining experience is very close to five stars and is highly recommended. You may want to book a table in advance. The restaurant was full even on a sunday night outside the busiest season.
I joined a group of friends who live in Bastia for a drink at the Vinoteka and diner at the Grazie Mille Italian restaurant. The lady who runs the place is full of energy. The menu and spcial dishes looked very attractive. I went for the grilled octopus followed by pasta with crab. It was delicious. The wine list is a bit limited to my liking but there are some good Corsican wines. Highly recommended when in Bastia
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.
