We had a really tasty meal here. Huge portions! Situated in a small square it was a lovely setting, very chilled out. Cocktails were good too.

Pizzas are about 12" across, so a good value for your money. However, they don't cut them, so be prepared to make a mess of your food. Also, don't order the one with anchovies, olives and breadcrumbs, it was just not good.

Lovely courtyard restaurant/pizzeria at the top of the steps past Il Principe hotel. The fish soup, more like a stew, in a rich tomato sauce was stunning. The pizza was disappointing even though the place is renowned for it. Service was excellent up to the...More
