Have to admit 2 years on, both the service and food were much better. We weren't made to rush this time, probably because the restaurant wasn't as busy. We were actually treated more like guests. The food was much better too. Can't say much of...More

Good food, nice and funny waiters, yet slightly overpriced experience. One of the wine jugs was brought cold, while the other not. Nice view of the sea. Quiet and cosy atmosphere at evening.

Tourist quality food with no Italians eating here at lunchtime. We both had pizzas and both were cooked just like a typical UK chain with soggy bottoms. Despite the quality ingredients promised by the descriptions neither my Capricciosa or my wife's Funghi lived up to...More
