The menu was extensive with specials featured. I started with delicious lemon salmon bruchettas. For my main had the seasonal funghi tagliatelle which was excellent. Wine... More

Our second visit to this family-run place. They accommodate gluten-sensitive patrons, the "mare" selections are fabulous. A mix of locals and tourists, you can feel the "we care" vibe.

This was my first restaurant in this city, and wasn't impressed. Service was non-existent, was never asked if I wanted coffee, desert, and the waiter hung out inside so it was hard to get her attention. When I got the food, it was just Ok, didn't feel like I was eating anything special or good enough to note. Ambience was... More

Very nice and fast service and a very nice and well tasted mixed fish dish. They understand English and was very services minded. Highly recommend from a Danish couple.

We had a lovely meal outdoors. The staff were all very friendly and our waitress was particularly helpful with our very poor Italian. Delicious food served quite promptly and generous servings. A few patrons when we arrived but filled up quite quickly. Bookings recommended.

This nice restaurant is run by a family. Both menu's as a la carte dinner is possible. The restaurant has a nice terrace were you will find about 10 tables, you can also sit inside, but we always loved to stay outside, Who comes for dinner takes fish, fish and more fish... I love the vongole ( little shells) and... More

i wanted a break from seafood and i ordered the local trenette al pesto. I must say that I was pleasantly surprised. They came with potatoes and green beans and they were absolutely delicious and very easy to digest- sometimes pesto gives you heartburn. The price was definitely affordable.
