Lovely place with great local food and good service. Pasta with octopus, olives, tomatoes and capres were delicious, as were the linguini with mushrooms. The kids loved their pasta with fresh tomatoes. Don't miss the warm apple pie, a heavenly experience!

We enjoyed it. Appreciated being offered to move inside - it was very windy. Everything was good, salads, meat variety plate, and certainly wine. The waitress was very helpful and polite. Menu in English is available.
