Best carbonara and bacon tomato pasta we've had so far, very busy, many locals, delish! The fact that locals are here is a testament, they know where the good food is. Right on the water with views of the cruise ships, two pasta dinners and 4 beer 44 euro, big portions no rush to finish.

On the waterfront, enjoyed a most pleasant & plentiful lunch with my husband. I ordered the 3 seafood entre. My husband ordered the caprese & a regular salad with shredded carrots & tomatoes. We shared a tiramisu with a Capuccino.

Limited menu. Good food bad service (lunchtime). Good location. Noisy caged bird. Nothing else to say. Let me stop.

We spent an afternoon on their terrace enjoying the view of the marina. We had a couple of cappuccinos before checking out what they were offering, finding reasonable prices and two different set menus designed especially for tourists. For under $30, we had “spaghetto cozze” (spaghetti with mussels) followed by “spiedino calamari e Gamberi" (squid and shrimp on skewers). A... More

We came here twice in the past and food was ok. We both had pizza's and beer. They have talking parrot in the restaurant who likes to speak Italian which is a nice touch. During our third visit I did notice that the service is not as good as before. Waiter was a bit moody and service was very slow.

Located on the ramparts of Pope Urban's Walls, the restaurant looks out over the sea and offers tables outdoors as well as in an enclosed pavilion, shaded from the hot sun but open to cooling sea breezes. But this is not merely a restaurant with a great location: Both... More

I've never been ignored in a restaurant before😕. Given table. After 25 minutes caught a waiter and asked if I could order. Order taken. 20 minutes later water arrived, 10 minutes bread arrived, 15 minutes cutlery, 10 minutes food after chasing. Meanwhile others (Italians) had arrived, ordered, eaten and left! Food excellent
