Food has been great. So the service. Quick and courteous. Generous portions in every meal. Prices are very competitive despite of being located in the historical town centre. The place was amazingly packed up of clients! Not surprised at all!

Mediocre. Clownish service. Very poor value for money. Not in the same zone as Il loggia for the same price level. Avoid.

We enjoyed our lunch at Il Faro. Kind and helpful service and an extremely affordable menu (a margherita pizza costs only 4 euros). The list of pizzas is endless. The meaty ravioli was quite good. Total cost for lunch for two people (pizza, ravioli, two...More

Reading about this place it sounded like a good alternative to another fancy expensive restaurant, especially for pizza. It was adequate for that purpose. We were certainly in and out quicker than any other stop on our two week trip. Service was good and friendly....More
