Been recommended by a local. As it was said, excellent fish quality, good plate presentation, good food. We have been badly impressed by the misleading prices for the same dishes on the daily recommendations (more expensive) and on the menu (cheaper). Weird outcome.

Lovely ambient also for business lunches. The fish is simply excellent and the owner is time to time visiting the Sala to collect feedback. If you are around, just try it.
