Next to another tourist trap looking just like Grotta Azzurra (the disaster from our first night) we found the lovely if oddly named Shelter. The clear difference on the street is the behaviour of the waiters and manager who don't pressure you to come in...More

This was our favorite restaurant where we ate twice. The welcoming is very gentle and respectful, not as agressive as at the neighbours' The service is perfect. We had tuna and chicken, high in quality and low in price.
