I had an extraordinary lunch at Da Pina 12 years ago, and an unforgettable dinner there the following year - one that our dining partners still reminisce about. It was with trepidation that we returned for lunch last week, thinking it impossible that the standards could be still be so high. I am thrilled to report that this was by... More

Had heard wanders about this place so headed there for a try. I had the raw fish platter (the prawns are simply phenomenal) and the aubergine gnocchi. Now these deserve all the praise in the world! Soft and tender they melt in the mouth with a fantastic tomato sauce! Can't recommend It enough!

We hear many good opinions about this place, so we booked the table with an enthusiasm.... unfortunately it lasts for a first few minuets of our presence in this promising place. The internal design very romantic and pleasant, service very kind but that's all about the positive things. The food was tasteless in every plate we took: starters, pasta, fish..... More

Giovanna and her staff are excellent and go over above the usual service and food . The snapper fillets cooked in a bag with lemon , garlic and capers is mouth watering , my favourite is their fritto misto , and spaghetti vongole and cozze , so fresh and plump. A big plus the toilettes are always clean.

We were recommended this restaurant by our hotel and came twice during our two day visit. Fresh fish, sensational pasta and gnocchi and divine desserts. Our waiter, Vincenzo (nicknamed the assassin by the next table), destroyed my waistline by bringing plate after plate of beautiful food combined with fun and attentive service. An experience I won't forget!

This place is just right: not stiffed and food is excellent. Melanzane gnocci: must try! We just love the place. Desserts are also fantastic.
