A pleasant environment and staff. We were pleased with our experience and would recommend it for what we believe to be typical southern Italian cooking.

The fried anchovies were great! And Italian fried fish ball which... More

The restaurant was a little off the main area of town and not very flashy from the outside but it was nice and cozy inside. The service was very good and we were able to get seconds of the pasta dish. The primo was a lemon pasta with clams and it was excellent. Again, we found the staff very friendly... More

Went there with a large group, menu already chosen, good. Highlight was singing by our guide and a waiter and a waitress of traditional songs, with a sweet child looking on behind the cashier's desk.

If you're looking for real Italian food and hospitality just slightly away from tourist areas, then this is without doubt the place. After all, this is an Italian restaurant, with Italian family, and everyone here will be local Italian people - no tourists. Here you must embrace the Italian way of life and enjoy real Italian food and people. The... More

Our tour group took over the restaurant one evening, and we had a grand time. In spite of the large group, the staff kept the dishes coming--very tasty and hot. A guitar player was on hand to sing some Neopolitan songs, making for a lively evening.

Went here after reading TA reviews. Not a good experience. Service was fine, but the food was terrible. I had mussels with pasta and beans. There were only a few mussels and the pasta was a couple of different kinds of pasta broken into small pieces. Not good - didn't finish it. I also ordered caprase salad - the tomatos... More

We tried a couple places that were very good (evu), but this was the best. We just did the seafood appetizers, and we were very satisfied. We had clams, mussels, octopus, risotto, wine and a few other things. One of us was vegetarian and the risotto was speciality made. With food, drinks, a dessert, and aperitivos, it was about 100...
