We grabbed a table outside in a small side street. The setting was charming. Though smiling and generally polite, the staff decided to stand over us and have a loud conversation among themselves for the best part of the meal. This restaurant boasts portraying the...More

Nice location and the fruit of the sea appetizer was very good. The the risotto al mare came and looked great. But the dish was so salty that we could barely eat it - after that just wanted to leave. Four requests for the bill...More

Dinner service was terrible & the waiters were nervous & don't really understand English. I don't follow how come it got an average score of 4 stars

Misto Mare was very good. Server was very attentive. Good value for dinner. Would have been a star if we waited for outside seating.

Incredible selection of fresh seafood. Make sure you have the seafood salad before you eat your main meal. I had stuffed anchovies. Everything was delicious, but the salad was out of this world!

If you really enjoy octopus, then you have to go here. It is a family tradition and a secret on how it is prepared, but is is delicious. They have other great dishes, so give them a try!

Very average place with not fresh seafood and prices that bred resentment even with the expectations we had as tourists. Indifferent service.

we had dinner there Sept 2013 food was excellent as was the service .... went back October 2016 -- did the family sell the place??? Food was average, and service was "ok" not great. We passed by several times during our 10 day stay and didn't see the family who operated it in 2013.

Sorry. It was a first-time visit and while we thought it was quite good, we had no previous visit to compare it with.
