This is a restaurant you won't regret going to. We started with a seafood salad that had octopus, calamari and shrimp. It was a lot of food and so, so well prepared. We also had the linguini with swordfish, eggplant and mint. Sounds odd but it was sooo good. Can't stop thinking about it.

I think it's fair to say that you can't be disappointed at this restaurant. The fish is fresh, it is very expertly cooked and you can sit right in front of the beach, as you quaff a beer and enjoy the weather. I can't wait to go back. So much more to try.

We came here when we were last in Calabria in 2012 and it is just as good as it was then. Tasty seafood just as I remember. We were given a very warm welcome from the waitress who spoke fluent English and we sat in the same table as we had in 2012. Deja Vu feelings. The food was delicious. I would certainly recommend this restaurant to anyone who likes good food and good customer service with a smile.

We came here last summer and really enjoyed it. Back tonight and again very happy. Probably our favorite restaurant in Scalea. Sit on the beach (photo submitted). Antipasta, shell fish assorted and sautéed in a sauce that you will finish with your spoon. Catch of the day baked whole just right, very tasty. Friendly service, not much English but we can communicate))

Great place for fresh, local seafood - caught by local fishermen off the waters in front of you. I had the the cuttlefish pasta which was one of the best dishes I have eaten in Scalea. The restaurant looks great and you are only a few metres from the sea so the views are spectacular especially at sundown. One of the owners is British which helps if you don't speak Italian. Prices are also very reasonable. Well worth a visit (or two).
