Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Only five minutes walk from where we were staying. Very accommodating, 4 adults and 3 kids, rearranged table for us. Bruschetta was amazing, as was the gnocchi, pizzas and carbonara. Will definitely be coming back, can’t recommended enough.

We came here 3 nights of our holidays to a local hotel, it was only 5 minutes walk from where we stayed. The staff are very friendly and accommodating. There were 7 of us (5 adults and 2 children) the staff pulled tables together to...fit us all. They also recommend what wines were good. The restaurant is very child friendly and the food was gorgeous. We ordered a range of items including carbonara, steak, cheese board, sausage and ham board and lasagna, all were incredible. Would definitely highly recommend a visit to Al Fresco!More

Cute little restaurant tucked away from busy tourist spots. Lovely homemade food, we can definitely recommend the bruschetta, garlic bread and all of the pasta dishes! Their sangria is next level! 10/10 would recommend!

One of the best sangrias with sparkling wine that we've had! Delicious pasta with pesto, great appetizers, divine panna cotta, and aperol spritz! Highly recommended! Great value for the price. Super nice service. It's in a bit remote place but definitely worth checking out. We...enjoyed it a lot!More

Visited this restaurant after a pleasant round of golf nearby. Even the guy from our group who seems to never be satisfied with anything and is constantly nagging / being negative, expressed his positiveness towards this place. All had beers, 2 bottles of wine, mains...and dessert for less than a 120€. Staff was also 5 stars.More
