A lovely restaurant with some tables on the balcony looking over the beach at the sunset. The house carafe of white wine was a bargain at 7.5 euros. The seafood risotto was yummy and so was the melanzane parmigiano.

Please, if you didn't order yet, get up and leave. The worst overpriced food i ever tasted in Italy. I regret every minute that I spent there.

Nice starter of basil, mozzarella and tomato but spaghetti bolognese was average. Service was good and views even from inside were pretty.
