Visited this restaurant after reading all the reviews and it did not disappoint. The restaurant is small and clearly family run. I ate the casoncelli alla bresciana which was quite possibly the best pasta I’ve ever had. The waitress recommended a wine to match. The...More

A bit off the beaten track (hooray!) about 10 mins walk from the waterfront, this restaurant was an outstanding find. I have never had such good tuna carpaccio, I found the sea bass ravioli amazing and I would go back just to have the walnut...More

We were welcomed in even though they were just opening. The owner/waitress speaks no English but we got by with our little Italian. Steaks were amazing, the pumpkin ravioli was superb. Great wine and desserts and made to feel very welcome. It filled up very...More
