If you are staying more than a couple of days, there will probably come a time when you want something less formal. Here are a few suggestions for casual dining: Col Cacchio is the local pizzeria. There is a large amount of seating outside for those warmer evenings. This restaurant also offers pastas and a wide range of delicious salads.
We have already mentioned Kalfi’s family restaurant, and very close to Kalfi’s you will find Taki’s – A Greek-owned restaurant. Then in the vineyards we recommend ‘The Country Kitchen’, on the Mont Rochelle Estate – this is a lovely laid-back spot for summer. If you are looking for something in-between fine-dining and casual – give Allora, French Connection or the ‘Grill Room’ a try – they still require reservations in the high season, but you will find the experience a lot less formal. Allora is an Italian restaurant a couple of kilometers out of town, and the French Connection is in the heart of the village. French Connection has excellent food but is not at all pretentious and very reasonably priced. It is a stone’s-throw away from our local pub ‘The Elephant and Barrel’, a great spot to end off your evening. The newest addition to the village is ‘The Grill Room’ – this large new sophisticated Steakhouse has become quite a hit in the valley – Extremely generous portions on offer for those who appreciate delicious food in healthy quantities! The desserts at the Grill Room are particularly decadent and it would be a shame to miss out so make sure you save room! (Especially for the chocoholics amongst us!)
