We had a memorable experience in charming cozy spot. Family photos and memorabilia from the chef's family decorate the tiny restaurant. No need to order an appetizer; stick with the main dish--it's plenty. There is enough cheese in all offerings to keep a battalion of...More

Away from the main touristic streets, you can find high-cuisine options in Colonia. Gibellini is a very tiny restaurant (only 4 tables) offering a tasty and unique menu. I do recommend the salmon with shrimps, difficult to find a better fish dish around. Being true...More

Discovered this place whilst strolling randomly around Colonia and trying to avoid the more touristy places on the main drag. Very quiet at lunchtime in peak tourist season but great pasta, chilled ambience and friendly staff. Worth a visit if fixed-menu pizzas and cheeseburgers don't...More

Me and my boyfriend went to this restaurant because it looked very cosy and we had an impression that it should be very personal and informal (not too expensive). We wanted to eat some sea food or fish and the chef said he didn't have...More

The restaurant is fantastic in its decoration, I really loved it. The food was good but only my ravioli (too much parsley) because the mussels eaten by my partner were terrible. The portions were very small and overpriced. I think that more attention should be...More
