At first I thought that the reviews were wrong because the wait staff seemed pleasant. However when they brought our sardine appetizer to the table it was cold which was weird because it was breaded and fried making the texture kinda off. They then brought...More

The food on its own is good value but the service is so bad that it is not worth visiting. The refusal to make eye contact or clear plates made it difficult to order and when you did, it was a long wait and the...More

We found the service to be very slow and observed another group waiting more than 20 minutes for their order to be taken ,while staff were chatting with each other. My husband had the sea bass which he found delicious,but wasn't impressed with it it...More

Nice location, get a table outside. Away from the crowds so much quieter than downtown. Most food was fresh (menu tells you if it was frozen) and plenty of taste. Service was friendly. Try to reserve a table outside.

We had 5 different types of anchovies for antipasti - very delicious! We then had different pasta dishes for primi - one with zucchini and safran, and one with mussels, lemon and mint. The white wine (5 terre D.O.C) was extremely good! However, when we...More

We booked this restaurant as a group of 14. The served food was great but three main courses arrived after the others had finished. We had to press hard to get compensation and the mood of the evening was spoiled.

If a restaurant is only open 3 hours a day and is doing well- that is a good sign. It is definitely off the beaten path and recommended by a local- another good sign. We enjoyed a bottle of house red wine and seafood pasta...More

We had parked our car nearby and noticed how off the beaten path this spot was and decided we had to try it. Service was very friendly, limited English, but your in Italy and should speak Italian anyway. Very very accommodating for a vegetarian! Loved...More

We selected this restaurant primarily because of its proximity to our hotel which was located up quite a step hill and we did not fancy the two-way walk into the main township. It was delightful. Excellent food with typically fresh ingredients favoured by Italian trattoria,...More

We walked up the first night, then booked for subsequent night while at restaurant. You could ring them on 0187 920143. I don't think you can book online. Cheers.

It's at the top of the town, you can easily walk there. Check on a map but basically you just walk all the way up the main street going through town and then up some steps and you're there. It's a very small town.
