Very friendly welcome to a very clean and attractive restaurant. Food was good though portions would not satisfy a large appetite without taking at least two courses. The sea bass was reported as excellent as was The ravioli and the tagliatelle. Prawn skewers very good...More

A bit off the beaten track (hooray!) about 10 mins walk from the waterfront, this restaurant was an outstanding find. I have never had such good tuna carpaccio, I found the sea bass ravioli amazing and I would go back just to have the walnut...More

This is really just to correct the impressions of earlier postings. First, this is not a particularly friendly or efficient restaurant. One tired waitress took ages to attend to us, and no bread or drinks offered on arrival. Second, there are no vegetarian options -...More
