We wandered in early one weekday evening, and were made to feel very welcome by the senior waiter. He spoke little English but luckily we understand and speak a little 'menu' Italian, so we got along just fine. The set menu was fantastic, as long...More

Our visit was a touristic rip-off. 200 € for one fish for five people. We have to report to the police. A danger for tourists

We really enjoyed sharing a bruschetta appetizer and then a spectacular veal dish. Very convivial ambience. Good and reasonably priced wine. Topped off with cappuccino. This restaurant was soooo much better than the places that Central Holiday Tours reserved for us.
