Great location on a side street up from the main square - with lower prices to match. Good, simple local food - we had the taster menu which was great. Friendly service.

During my recent summer holiday, my first evening was spent at U Spuntinu, what a great intro. The restaurant is reasonably priced and offers some wonderful Corsican wines. Take a sampler which includes wonderful local specialties

Good traditional Corsican food , very friendly staff and the cook came several times to ask if we were satisfied with very thing . The large plate of Corsican specials is worth trying together with a desert it cost 24.50 euros as a set menu .
