Per chance this was one of the few restaurants close to our B & B that was open on a Monday night. A delightfully quirky restaurant with a menu divided in half. Half for fish and half for meat. It was so good that we...More

Hidden away and hard to find but a real gem. A lovely family run restaurant, they helped us with the handwritten Italian menu by translating and offering suggestions. Wonderful, slightly unusual food, all home cooked and proudly presented.

Ate here for dinner after visiting Villa d'Este. Very charming and friendly host gave excellent service. Menu in Italian with selection of additional daily specials, including delicious grilled octopus. The rest of our choices weren't as well-received. Best was the home-made strawberry pannacotta.

Had a meal on a Sunday evening. The restaurant was quiet and the staff attentive. Menus are hand written and focus on either fish or meat. Prices are average. Portion size was a little mean which never gives the best impression. The restaurant is more...More
