Had a dinner here and we shared some "sea antipasti" which were good and well done. But than we decided to have the "zuppa di pesce" (fish soup). Well have to confess that was one of my personal Top three ever.....great! This flavor will be always with me..... Il Padrino "never forget..."

This is one of the "historical" restaurants in Porto Cesareo and it's worth the time that you may happen to spend for waiting for your table (they do not accept reservations). It's in the central part of the city, close to the sea, and their speciality is the fish. I recommend to start with "cozze al graten" which is prepared... More

We were looking for a place where to have dinner and local told us this is a good restaurant for fish. We had cozze and vongole sauté', spaghetti alle vongole and spaghetti alle cozze. Everything very good, fresh, and tasty. Good service in general. When I arrived home I realised I payed more than what I consumed. Just be careful... More

My friends took me to this fish restaurant for the first time and I was afraid it would have been quite expensive; but with my great surprise it was ok and food was great and atmosphere joyfull and noisy as on a typical southern Italy restaurant. I can recommend it !

Linguine with seafood was OK, but the main course (frittura di paranza) was terrible, Side dishes terrible as well. Frozen french fries, salad not freshly made, sauces served like in a fast food restaurant. The waiter wanted to take our order within 30 seconds after we came in. When we asked for more time so we could at least get... More

Noticed people queuing for this place around midday and it had queues through to 3pm when we left. Other restaurants in location very quiet so we decided it must be good. Everything really fresh. Service could have been friendlier, but they were busy. Food very tasty. If you love fish, you should love this.
