The location is wonderful, parking plentiful. I was disappointed in the simple dish I ordered: Gnocchi with tomato sauce and basil. Simpler than this it could not be. When my meal arrived I did not see any basil, which is what gives the dish its wonderful flavor. Upon calling the waitress I was told that the basil had not arrived that day. Mind you that basil was plenty full everywhere. I told the waitress that if a customer asks for a dish and the dish cannot be produced, inform the customer to allow him/her to change their dish. Upon my inquiry and telling them it did not taste good, no offer was made to give me something else and I was charged the full price for a dish I only ate four-spoon fulls of it. Needless to say the dish was a major flop without the right ingredients.

Had the sea bass and it was cooked to perfection. This is a simple restaurant with great service. Will be there again.

This place has a small porch on a busy alley, plastic tables with paper cloth and plastic cutlery - all the elements necessary for some amazing sea food.

And indeed the food there is amazing - the dishes are fresh and tasty, the portions are big and you can even choose your own fish from the Pescheria next door!

The place is great for lunch or a late dinner, for a snack or a full meal. They would even serve you a bottle of nice rosato!

I mean, the place is so cool that even a group of german tourists next to us relaxed on the easy approach italians have, sipping beers, sharing different dishes and chatting happily with the waiter in a funny mixture of italian and german. This says a lot! ;)

The restaurant is attached to a fish shop and the seafood and fish is fresh and on display. It's seriously basic and everything is disposable but it so popular you really have to book. We stumbled across it at 7.30 and got the last seat and were then observed by a queue of potential customers willing the diners to eat up! The quality of the fish/seafood is excellent and it is well cooked. Service is speedy and the staff who served us were friendly and helpful. Highly recommend it.
