Okay, short and sweet review. Lovely location, good prices for Italy, and staff were friendly. Beautiful day for it! However, I lost count of the amount 'salesmen' (the ones that seem to be all over Italy these days, okay, I'm gonna say it, the hoardes of African / Indian men that seem to be on every street corner there) the...

Weekend in January so not many places open. Stumbled across La Giara in a prime spot on the corner close to the market area & park by the coast. Ordered mushroom tagliatelle and vegetarian pizza - the pasta was good quality and fresh but portion very small, certainly not enough for one person (expensive at €15!) and the pizza was... More

We ate here on a day trip to the town and it looked very nice. The tables are clean but the service was poor. We had a long wait for our food and had to ask three times for a glass of tap water. My wife had prawns and vegetables in tempura batter. They looked impressive but the batter was... More

We were in town for the Friday Market and found this restaurant right on the main street where the market is. The menu was in Italian and French and the staff spoke very little English but we were able to work it out as most English-speaking people know about Italian food names and what they are. They had good size... More

We enjoyed a good meal, good wine and good service. The menu covers most tastes. It is not too expensive what else could you want?

The service was slow and the food mediocre, the position of the café is central but parking is a nightmare.

I visited on a Saturday lunchtime. This is one of the best budget Italian restaurants I have visited in Ventimigula . I had a Neapolitan Pizza and a half litre of wine. The service was immediate and very welcoming with a great sense of Italian humour! The price was significantly lower than on the French side of the border. The... More

Classic Italian restaurant where the food is good- particularly the Pizza. It is authentic and am surprised by the person who said it was bland. We have eaten here four times and never found it bland.
