We found this place by chance and everything about Al Cantinone was so so right. Service was awesome, drinks and food absolutely delicious. For 5 Kiwis on holiday we loved Al Cantinone and it has just added to the magic of this wonderful country.

Nice restaurant, friendly service and good unpretentious Italian food at fair prices. If you visit take a look at the wine shop that is part of the restaurant.
