This café is good for an afternoon snack while the restaurants in the nice little town are closed. We had the 'tapas series' for EUR 37 as a family - is was really delicious. Prices are fairly high for the food - but in the afternoon as the only place open (at least in october, as far as we found)... More

We were a bit disappointed. The staff was very nice, great views but this place is not really for dinner. It's a place to go to, have a snack and a drink and have a proper meal somewhere else. Even for tapas themselves you kind of get olives, a few spreads and some smoked sandwich meat.

Amazing views and relaxed atmosphere make this a great place to enjoy dinner and sunset if you are in Pigna. The Tapas are all great and the house wine very drinkable. For €35, 2 people can eat and drink well.

Perfect place for a refreshment with utterly amazing and peaceful views. Great ice cream (but not homemade as originally thought); the mint version was beautiful. Our son loved the terraces with interesting and colourful furniture. Didn't try the tapas, but the menu looked really interesting. Felt like we had escaped to a better world....

We came here on a somewhat rainy day - a real shame as the garden is beautiful and has a great view... Really really amazing! The inside is in an old, traditional building - nice but tiny. Food is simple but good, and prices are very reasonable.

We had a late afternoon break at A Casarella during our tour of the Balagne villages. It was a rainy day, but by the time we reached Pigna the sun was shining again, which made it perfect for a glass of Muscat and a piece of cake. We chilled out on the terrace, soaked in a bit of sun and... More

The owners of this restaurant work incredibly hard to produce amazing food in a reasonable time from such a tiny kitchen. With views over the Bay of Algajola and shade if needed, you couldn't find a better place to eat. We shared a selection of delicious tapas between us - generous portions accompanied by Corsica beer (Pietra). There is a... More

This tiny restaurant perched on the edge of the village at Pigna does simple things very well and is a great spot for lunch overlooking the panoramic view if visiting this beautiful hillside tourist attraction. Charcuterie was spot on and the days special of organic locally sourced tomatoes and garlic on toasted sourdough was beautifully executed with good olive oil... More
