We visited on a Wednesday evening, and fortunately we had a booking, as the restaurant was soon full. The setting is quiet and the interior is very pleasant, with the space broken up into smaller rooms. The lighting is just right to accentuate the historic...More

Very disappointingly, when we tried to book for Saturday evening, the place was full. We really shouldn't have been surprised: it must be VERY popular, and it isn't a big restaurant. We made it for Sunday lunch instead. The food (fish in all its guises)...More

The highlight of our holiday eating, this fine-dining fish place is beyond fantastic. Exquisite dishes are delivered by knowledgeable and attentive staff. There's a bar where you can enjoy an aperitivo in the piazza while you wait for your table to be ready. Outstanding in...More

A website we looked at said that this was a Michelin recommended restaurant so we thought we'd try it. Our choice was the tasting menu which we slightly regreted as the portions started off small but got larger so after five we were blown out!...More

We went there on the advice of Hotel Annunziata nearby, having asked for seafood. Amongst other dishes, the real show-killer was the spaghettis cooked in sea water, topped with 3 types of fish eggs, including bottarga. Minutes after the first bite, I could still feel...More

I have visited this restaurant in 2006 and 2014. Both was the same taste.. As I prefer un processed and uncooked fish I love it. Though my wife could not stand my totally fresh, uncooked or bloody meals but when she realized the freshness of...More

This seems to have closed down! Better to remove from website so that more people don't waste time looking for it.

Buona sera Sig. Zappaterra, la ringrazio per la risposta e per l'invito, Lei alla nostra recensione risponde cosi: "Lei è passata da noi il giorno di pasquetta, si è seduta nella distesa estiva all'orario di pranzo, senza domandare a nessuno degli addetti alla sala se il tavolo fosse libero o avessimo disponibiltà" generalmente quando si entra in un locale, se non si è immediatamente accolti, si chiedono informazioni, questo è vero, ma dato avendo un cane di piccola taglia, ci siamo seduti appunto all'aperto, e di solito quando un tavolo non è libero si appone su di esso un cartellino con scritto RISERVATO, non avendo riscontrato perchè non presente questo cartellino, era semplice intuire che il tavolo fosse libero. I piccoli tavoli come mi insegnerà sicuramente anche Lei, sono sempre apparecchiati per due persone, e nel caso si aggiungono più comodamente dei coperti invece di rimuovere bicchieri, posate e tovaglioli....... Ciò non toglierà sicuramente la prelibatezza dei vostri piatti. Ah, dimenticavo, un ultima cosa, nella recensione da noi fatta, abbiamo scritto "ci viene detto che senza prenotazione non effettuano il servizio" Lei ha detto "A quel punto ho mandato uno dei ragazzi ad avvisarla con gentilezza che il tavolo era riservato." sono due cose ben distinte, non ci è stato comunicato che non avevate posti liberi...... Cordiali saluti
