“Why is this not in the top 5 ??”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 June 2013 via mobile

I have limited Italian but between that and the head waiter's endeavours we had a fabulous meal.
He recommended a sea bass looking fish that would be cooked 'al forno' with potatoes and olives. It was truly delicious.
The only odd thing to us Brits was the veg: cold cucumber and carrot chunks??
All the staff made us feel very welcome.
The only thing that let the place down was the two flat screen TVs. Get rid of them! The people who go do want to watch MTV or the Italy v Spain football that you switched to. Play some tasteful music without a TV
Rant over. Go and enjoy the food and service for yourself

“Very good restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 December 2012

Really good restaurant. The food is very good and I like the service too. The waiters spent time talking us through the type of dishes and wines. It is not cheap but considering the good quality of food and wines I think the price is right.
We (4 of us) had a very very big and good starter - selection of salami and cheeses with bread and savoury biscuits (and really after such a big starter we really didn't need a main course) and then pasta (the portion was quite small so I suggest to order at least 2 dishes if you go for pasta): 2 bottles of wines and it added up to about 32Euro per person. Must try
