Fantastic restaurant nestled on canal side in middle of Taranto - very good range of seafood all locally caught and prepared simply. Sea urchins were incredible and not something you always get - prepared in simple way - recommend a visit

Good traditional food with special view on the Aragonese Castle and the canal. The restaurant is owned by a family keeping tradition of good traditional food, mainly fish and seafood. Relaxing and nice for family lunch or for dinner - when possible in the terrace!

Very posh restaurant. Recommended by The Plaza Hotel this was a real treat. We were seated outside overlooking the water. Delicious food mostly fish. A little bit pricey but well worth it.

The food was just great. Amazing raw fish and mains. The highlight was the antipasti selection: a feast of raw fish, with a huge variety of seafood and shellfish.

It took 15 minutes yo the menu (even so it was not crowed). The owner took the order and double charge the starter and main course. The food was just ok. The worst experience we had in Italy so far
