We ate here our first evening in Pescara. The seafood is unsurprisingly fresh and good. We both ordered white fish. The dinner was good- a lot of food.

Nice setting in the marina and a good atmosphere. Gratis instead de mare was excellent. No antipasti for me though, watching my expanding wasteland so just two courses.

We arrived late after flying in and had the sea bass which was good, the staff were generally friendly but all polite and we felt welcome. The location is right on the marina so although nice in the evening is probably best enjoyed during the day when you can enjoy the view of the boats
