Not busy. Perhaps a sign of what was to come. Had my choice of main course (baked fish) sort of forced on me. There wasn't any other choice. Not much choice of pasta for our 3 year old either - spaghetti with clams. Not ideal. It's not particularly nice to have your fish dish showed to a Chinese couple who... More

First - the food was very good. The fresh fish we had had very nice taste. The kids ordered some pasta. The outside dining at the small Square is also very nice during evenings. BUT - the dinner was very overpriced. We payed 160 € for two adults and two kids. I can only agree what others write about this... More

Excellent food. This is a very old restaurant created 120 years ago by the family of the actual boss. It was a sunny day and our lunch on the terrace was very nice.

Some of the recent reviews are pretty harsh. Our experience at lunch today was quite pleasing. I think you have to be in tune with the personality of the place and the owners and prepared to pay for fresh fish. Overall, I think their inclusion in Michelin is justified, but clearly this restaurant is not for everyone. The restaurant aspires... More

We went last Saturday to Bri restaurant on recommendation by the hotel’s staff. The outside terrace is nice so we asked for a table there which we got immediately. As soon as we seated, an old lady, presumably the owner, immediately brought 2 trays with fish/lobster etc. to our table, pushing us to make a quick order on her recommendations.... More

The restaurant is a lovely building and they have a good spot outside however don't be fooled, the trick here is that as soon as you walk in the meter is ticking. They attempt to bring water (chargable), they automatically bring bread which is normal in Italy however at 8 euros this is a rip off, the owner very kindly... More
