Vertice small but beautiful place with local kitchen. You will not be disappointed. Menu is usually with small choice, but that is not a problem at all.

We were visiting Pizzo and we looked for a place for a fast but good lunch. We had one octopus and one tuna plus a salad. All dishes were excellent. The owner also suggested us a glass of local one. Very good. In summary even if we were quite in a hurry we enjoyed a lot the place. Unfortunately we... More

What a splendid find, just off the main square in Pizzo. Smart but comfortable and warm restaurant, we were treated very well. The food was delicious , presented beautifully and tasted wonderful. An excellent bottle of wine, reasonably priced was perfect with our meal. Compliments to the Chef and our host, we will be back!

Pleasant, moderately priced restaurant in Pizzo, serving mostly fish. Our waiter spoke no English, but we were able to get along with our limited Italian.

This place was really really good, across the spectrum. The service was great and perfectly timed, not too quick and not too slow. The owner, Antonino, talked about the dishes and it was apparent that he took pride in the cooking and his restaurant. The dishes were high quality too. The experience was very much like a michelin rated restaurant,... More

We found this restaurant by mistake & popped in for lunch. The waiter (proprietor?) Was informative, friendly & very attentive. The food is pricey given the surrounding establishments, but is worth every penny. The house wines are very good both red & white. I cannot praise the food & service enough, if we could have got back for an evening... More

We just wanted to grab something before Tartufo and were blown out of the water by this adorable and charming restaurant. Our waiter told us the food was "creative cuisine" which could be anything. My octopus and hummus appetizer was almost to beautiful to eat.

Our visit to the Locanda Toscano was a real treat. The food was outstanding - delicious and creative flavours, all beautifully presented with attention to detail and an emphasis on local produce. The local wine which was recommended to accompany our meal was delicious. This restaurant was more expensive than the other eateries we visited in Pizzo (all of which... More
