We highly rate the quality of the food and the way it's presented (e.g. the nice Tuscan starter with cured ham!), as well as the quality of the service staff. Very good value for money, and great menu for a family that has diverse preferences of food!

Amazing food, and great service from start to finish. Great choice on the menu that is a world apart from the usual pizza and pasta offerings in other restaurants on the Lido.

Food was fantastic and really reasonably priced and we were made to... More

Ate here last night after reading the recommendations on the web. Everything was faultless. The sommelier had an abundance of knowledge and was full of passion about the wines. He was spot on with his choice for us. Service, Food and wine 10/10.

I am an extremely picky eater and got a little scared when I looked at the menu and saw nothing as bland as I prefer. Our waiter assured me that the chef could prepare a fish the way I preferred and I was very pleasantly surprised with the outcome! The service was superb from start to finish!!

Our expectations were high after reading the Tripadvisor reviews, and we were not disappointed. We got a table without having to wait, but I would suggest to book a few days before to make sure you don't miss this gem. The waiters were very nice and professional, and had great knowledge about the origins of both the food and the... More

Decided to have dinner here 2 days ago after reading a website recommendation and was not disappointed. We went for the tasting menu with wine pairings, which was delicious. Staff were very attentive and Ottavio recommended wines to our different tastes, explaining a bit about each wine before serving. A bit pricey but worth it - I would definitely go... More

There is much better food available on the Lido. You may have to do some homework. You may have to go a little distance, but you can do much better than here.
