We have been unfortunate enough to visit this beautiful part of the country in an unseasonably wet week. For this reason we couldn't avail of the pretty outdoor terrace area. However, the couple who appeared to own/run this restaurant welcomed us warmly even if the weather did not!

It is worth noting that this is an Italian restaurant rather than a pizzeria so it is pasta, fish and meat dishes that are on offer. The menu is not extensive (although the wine list is!) but that is often the sign of an establishment that is more concerned with quality rather than quantity - which certainly proved to be the case here.

Three out of four of us had pasta dishes which were declared rich and tasty while I had a fish dish that was perfectly cooked (fish is all too often overdone) and came with rice and a beautifully delicate sauce. For desserts we had panna cotta and a trio of desserts containing ice cream, mousse and chocolate cake. The panna cotta's were everything they should be but the chocolate sponge was dry and disappointing.

Nevertheless, this was a very positive dining experience that I wouldn't hesitate to recommend to anyone in the region.

We visited whilst on holiday one evening, the menu and food quality were excellent, the dishes were Italian with a French twist and we all ordered the homemade pasta which was superb, the wine was excellent too and the desserts, homemade and authentic.
Unfortunately we had a 15 year old English waitress who wanted to spend hours talking about herself and didn't know the menu at all! Most annoying!
However I would still re visit, just not engage the waitress!

Went for lunch as part of a party of 10.
Set meal with a choice of 2 for each course.
Great food and wine, fantastic flavours as well.

Will return, possibly with many friends next May.

We have had a lovely evening at this restaurant. The food was superb with great service. The terrace is a must if you visit here. Would certainly recommend if you want top food in a lovely setting.
