MICHELIN Guide's Point of View

Overlooking the piazza for almost 50 years, this restaurant has been modernised but has nonetheless managed to retain its friendly, no - frills appeal....

The restaurant is far too be a Michelin restaurant. The service was extremely poor: Long waiting period to be served, wrong wine twice, wine card literally taken away from hands to serve another tourist couple. Food not top

We arrived on the island without any dinner reservations. I had searched and searched and kept coming upon three restaurants - this being one of them. Fortunately the other two were booked and when I called Vicolo they just had a cancellation! The luck began....We walked into the charm and were greeted with such friendliness. And it just got better. The food was fantastic!!!! We had appetizers, pasta and then fish. Everything was perfect. This is a must and should be your first reservation when you arrive on this island. And the kind woman (maybe she was the owner) just a great big old THANK YOU! Keep up the great work.More

This trattoria is tucked away in a small side street. The staff is friendly and the prices moderate. The menu offers fresh fish and local meat dishes.

Our experience - we arrived at 9pm, family of 4. After about 10min we ordered starters and tuna for main course. The restaurant was busy but within 5 min we had our starters. When the waitress collected our plate I asked her to kindly slow...down our mains so we could take our time. She assured me no prob as kitchen was busy. Less than 5 min later the mains arrived! At 9:50 the meal was over. When the owner came round to ask for desert & asked how it’s going, I told her how rushed the whole meal was & the waitress ignored our request. Her only comment was “my kitchen is very efficient”. I would think an efficient kitchen would know how to manage the service & I also struggle to see how it can be freshly cooked when it is so busy. All the food tasted very bland. We paid the bill (€168) and went somewhere else for desert and drinks to try and save the evening. If it makes any difference I speak fluent Italian.More

We had a great time on a Friday night. We ordered two appetizers and then Tonno in Crosta, which was perfect and Tagliolini suggested by the chef. We also had very good wine. The desserts were extremely particular and raffinate
