Walking and came across this place by chance. Busy, so generally a good sign. They did have a set lunch menu which looked like value for money but we ordered off the menu. I had the stuff squid which was really small and hadn't been cleaned properly. The accompanying vegetables though were exquisite. My sons cotoletta, whilst large wasn't really... More

Step off the Main Street along the waterfront and find this little bar and restaurant. The service was excellent - so nice and helpful, as we were trying out our Italian. The gnocchi with duck ragu was a perfect "10" - the best gnocchi I have ever eaten. The Arneis By the glass was also exquisite.

My husband and I found this restaurant by accident as its just off a main shopping lane and close to the Archaeological museum. It had a nice ambiance and the menu looked good so we went inside. There were a lot of locals which is always a good sign. We both had the house made pate and warm toast which... More

This was a business meal on the recommendation of a colleague that had worked in Milan. I would rate it top end of mid-range dining and as such excellent. The menu is limited but with a traditional 4 course menu, which with the small portions of delicious food are highly recommended. We missed secondi and had to have a cheese... More

Simply delicious, great service and very good wine choice. We had two fish courses, a selection of local cheese and a great bottle of wine. The bill was more than worth it

This restaurant is not too obvious at first. We walked across one end of the square (p.za S. Graziano) and noticed a bar and restaurant. The menu looked very interesting but it was only with a bit more looking through the window that I could see a way to another room at the back. We went in and were straightaway... More
