A little tucked away in the university quarter, this restaurant was recommended by a local. A modern space, busy with locals. Starters of prawns cooked at low temperature served on a bed of burrata and baccala with a herb and olive crust. Main courses were...More

I come to this restaurant whenever I can because I love the food. It’s mainly fish and vegetables. It’s not cheap though. You might end up paying 25 euros for a plate of past and a glass of wine

Bolognese cuisine is often delicious, but it is usually hearty, meat-based and inclined to be heavy. We'd enjoyed some meals like this, but on our last night in the city we felt like a change to something lighter. TripAdvisor came up with the answer. Sale...More
