We were a party of 9 and were able to sit out on the terrace at the back. As there were 10 starters on the menu but one was unavailable we decided to have all nine to share ! There was a huge variety and they were all very good and in light of what we then had, a little ambitious. The main courses were all declared to be equally good if perhaps a little generous on portion size in some cases. I had a pizza which was beautifully cooked but was large which presented a challenge to finish it.

The disappointment was the desserts which were a mixed bunch. I had a creme brulee which hadn't caramelised to a hard crust, someone else a pannacotta that had over set and a tiramisu which lacked any alcohol (which rather defeats the object). However, someone else had a chocolate dessert which was declared to be stupendous. Not sure if they were just having an off night in the dessert dept but it just took the edge of this family reunion.

Expect to pay c £28.00 per head including drinks etc.

We ate here with three children aged 6 to 12. The menu catered for us all very well. The children had bolognese or pizza. We had very good Tuscan antipasti followed by venison tagliatelle and a risotto in my wife's case. We then had prawns baked with rosemary, tomato, olives. Finished with a range of deserts. Overall was very good and not a bad price at around EUR120 for all of us including a bottle of good wine. The owner was very welcoming to the children. Obviously well frequented by the locals too, which is always a good sign.

Huge pizza menu, maybe we should have ordered from this (although the only other diners in the restaurant ordered pizza, and looked disappointed).Veal and fillet steak very ordinary, overcharged for plain vegetables, overall, a little disappointed.
