Just skip it and go eat somewhere off the square where the food and service is far better. Although the sauce on both mine & my husband's pasta dishes was decent, the pasta was definitely not fresh and it was under cooked (at least another...couple min of cooking needed to reach al dente). No house red wine, disappointing since we've been in Italy 8 days and have thoroughly enjoyed the house red at literally everywhere else we've eaten, so clearly a common thing. And lastly, and the reason for 2 stars instead of 3, our bill was 48 euros, my husband put down 50, the waiter picked it up and never brought, offered or asked if we wanted change. First, tipping isn't a must in Italy, especially for so-so service but, the bigger issue here is that as someone who has worked in the service industry myself: you never just assume the change is your tip.More

We were having a gander round the plaza at the variety of restaurants on offer, and as usual the staff will try reeling you in to each one, telling you it’ll be the best meal you’ve had. We chose this one as it was relatively...quiet & cheaper prices- we thought we’d give it a chance. Starting our meal with some martinis, followed by seafood risotto & prosciutto & melon starters which were bursting with flavour, we were blown away with the freshness & tenderness of the calamari & langoustines. The sweetness of the melon was incomparable. We followed this with beef fillet with truffle sauce & a tagliatelle bolognese. We were really wowed with the unexpected excellence of these- we’ve been touring Italy south to north & this was by far our favourite meal. The flavours were bursting & service was very pleasant. Initially we had second thoughts as it was quiet but really was impressed by the food, atmosphere, service, just everything. lovely setting on the plaza, by the lit up carousel & a performance by one of the bars. Everyone was bubbly & enjoying themselves. A big thank you to Alex who served us, very friendly guy who made us feel at home. The only thing I can fault the restaurant on, was the chocolate cake, they were all out of tiramisu, so we settled for the cake which was very dry & lacked frosting. But other than that it was undeniably the best meal of our holiday & one to remember. Highly recommend!! Grazie Mille!More

Retractable roof allows comfortable open air seating, yet can be enclosed in inclement weather. The steak is very large and perfectly grilled. I enjoyed the pasta with boar sauce. Service was very charming.

4 of us for an evening meal. Starters were OK but Spaghetti Vongole not available although on the menu. Pizza Margherita awful, seafood risotto stodgy mouless all closed, small prawns still in shells stodgy stodgy, inedible, Lasagne cold, stogy, lumpy and tasteless. Wine prices expensive...and service mediocre. Go somewhere else please!!!More

They charge for steak by the Kilogram. My wife ordered a steak, and the waiter served her with OVER TWO POUNDS OF BEEF at a cost of approximately $50. The steak was ok (not great) and the rest of the food was largely bland and...unimpressive. Clearly a tourist trap. I’d stay away from this place.More

Selected this restaurant in a hurry - should have selected better The food is mediocre, my cod was very poor and the side of vegetables just dripping in oil. The waiters were more interested in chatting up girls than clearing plates Interesting that they cleared...the plate with the cod that I left but nothing else. Definitely not on the list for the future.More

Though the view across the square is nice, the food and drink is nothing special. We had gnocchi and a salad, with half a bottle of ovietto wine. Nothing awful, but nothing special either. Spend your money more wisely on one of the smaller restaurants...on the back streets.More

We had our eyes set on Hard Rock cafe to be informed they had a private function that night so we strolled around and stumbled upon this place. Not too busy, prices seamed quite affordable. We shared a foccacia that had cheese, pear, walnut and...honey (it was amazing, large serve and only 5 Euro). I had an espresso Martini and Adam had dry nails cocktail for 10 Euro each and it was one of the better tasting cocktails we've had. For main I chose a vegetable soup and Adam had pork with potatoes and we shared a plate of vegetables. The whole bill came to 52 Euro for two drinks, two mains, a salad and foccacia entree. We were a bit surprised to see so many people have bad experiences here, we found it to be rather nice.More

Went as a family in the evening. Food expensive. Very small fish on its own 14 euros. No atmosphere in there. Only a handful of people all the time we were there. Restaurants either side very busy. Is this saying something? Very small portions of...pasta for the money. Maybe might be busier during the dayMore
