Lovely meal served by a hard working family. Don't be surprised if they barely have time to take your reservation for dinner, just wait patiently and watch them go at 100 miles an hour. That being said, they don't rush you in the least and provide pleasant personable service with very good food.

My salad was poor, plain, ingredients not ripe. The basket of bread (for which we paid 4 euro) was also stale. I took a few bites of my salad and left the rest. I think my server could tell I was displeased, so he avoided our table for almost 30 minutes. Finally, another server came to take away the dishes... More

In a sea of people we chose this restaurant by chance and we were very happy. The fish was very fresh. We had mixed fried calamars and fish and grilled octopus. The trio of tiramisu was delicious too.

The place was pretty packed when we arrived for dinner so we expected that the food would be great. Felt quite lucky to be able to get seats as the place was really busy when we entered. They really have great staff and attentive service, plus the ambiance inside the restaurant was also nice and modern. Had the fritto misto... More

We enjoyed our dinner here but it didn't meet our expectations. The service was kind of pushy for our taste. They kept pushing certain wines that we didn't want and brought the wrong kind of pasta with the right sauce saying that it's all the same instead of offering to redo the plate.

Busy place in the "heart" of the village. We got a table after around 15 min waiting and the food was very good with fair prices. my kid got the spaghetti al pesto and me and my wife the "catch of the day"... the sea bas was perfect for EUR 16. Wines are good and the ambient is very nice.... More

The restaurant offers nice variety of seafood. We tried different dishes: lobster, swordfish, catch of the day, pasta with monkfish and pasta with anchovies. Everything was really tasty with fresh ingredients and full of flavor. After that comes very good desserts. Homemade tiramisu with three different flavors,walnut cake, cannoli and Cinque Terre sweet wine. Big portion, nice personnel. If you... More

After several seafood meal. A good chicken with potatoes was a nice option. Their bread is good. Staff are all pleasant and engaging. They even gave our furry four legged family member a fresh bowl of water. What a nice touch.
