Carpaccio in any variety has been always my favourite starter; lastly I have developed a special preference for the Octopus carpaccio and at Andrew.s Faro I found the state of the art to my "Capricci di mare". It was so good that I didn't want main course just to keep the flavour in my mouth. Four nights after I repeated the experience but went with the Seafood Pasta (vongole+shrimp) and the Involtini di Vitello al Pistachio, Tha pasta was world class the involtini a little bit disappointing but not bad, just a very strong flavour from the filling cheese. Their wines selection is narrow but exquisitely chosen. The best Dry wine spritz I have enjoyed in Italy is here, perfect preludian for a beautiful dinner. The location is awesome, in that narrow street in front of the Mediterranean called Via San Giovanni LiCuti...by the way all places in this street are awesome...

At Andrew's Faro you may certainly find "cappricci di mare". one of the best restaurants in this narrow street (all of them are very good) I found here a nice Spritz (dry) and the best vongole pasta, focaccia and bruscheta totally enjoyable on the side. Involtini al pistachio and grilled sword fish very descent. staff including the big boss Lucca were great.

This was recommended by Plaza Hotel. Food was not good. Swordfish was about 1/4" thick! Being in a fishing town we expected much better food.
