We LOVED this place. Found by accident, we immediately felt drawn to the atmosphere created in the little square. Staff were incredibly friendly, full of smiles and energy and happy to help. Most staff spoke excellent English, but kindly humoured our attempts at Italian as well.

We ate gnocchi with tomato sauce and spaghetti with a Bolognese sauce, both of which were simple, but completely delicious. We sampled desserts too-cheesecake & the more traditional tiramisu which were excellent.

We enjoyed the experience so much, we went back again the next night! We were welcomed with enthusiasm for our return and again enjoyed excellent service, delicious food and a buzzing atmosphere.

Highly recommend, we cannot speak highly enough of this place!

Initially looking for the pharmacy, we stumbled upon this lovely little restaurant and were so glad we did! The staff could not have been more welcoming or helpful: realizing that we were looking for plasters they gave us some out of their first aid kit, then when we asked if they knew somewhere good for a massage one of them spent ages on the phone calling around to get us booked in that afternoon!

Such attentive service with a smile, which was complemented by some lovely fresh pasta dishes and local wine all at a very good price.

Would definitely recommend this restaurant and suggest following the signs from the main square to the pharmacy to find it.

...but it was so good we kept coming back! The eggplant, the seafood, the anchovies... I know many don't like them but those were memorable. Staff was fantastic, hard-working and really made us feel at home. Grazie!

We enjoyed our time spent dining at this restaurant, they have out door seating on a lovely square that is away from all the car/moped/tourist traffic. The staff spoke English very well and even made a specialty pasta for one in our group with a specific diet! They were not overbearing or hovering, like we've found in many places. They were extremely pleasant to have waiting on you. We will definitely return and would highly recommend dining here.
