“OK but nothing special”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2013

Went to C'era Una Volta following trip advisor' s number 1 status in San Terenzo. Not bad food but I like my main meal with vegetables which were sorely lacking. Food was fresh but not particularly tasty.
Was also charged $6.00 for ''coperto'' which basically means forks and knives and paper towels... A first for me.
Overall, again , food is fresh but cooked without great imagination.

“Fresh ingredients and attention to detail”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 October 2011

We love this restaurant! My wife has coeliac disease and must eat a super-sensitive gluten-free diet. At C'era Una Volta she is at home, in total confidence and welcomed with open arms. The pride with which this family business looks after its customers, offering the best ingredients cooked with careful attention to detail is evident. If you ever thought gluten-free meant second best, think again at C'era Una Volta.
