Top restaurant in top yatch club

In a nice Fall atmosphere by the windows overlooking the warfs, spaghetti with clams are truly unforgettable. It's cosy place with sea mist smell all around you.

The location inside the yacht marina, the restaurant decor, and table service were very good. The weak point was the food. I had some seafood gnocchi---the frozen seafood had been reheated--and some tasteless mixed appetizers. With a better cook it could become a good restaurant.

Staying at The Excelsior Palace Hotel close by, we thought we would try this restaurant, apparently acclaimed for its fresh fish,-what a mistake! Arriving early, we were seated by the window, and then largely ignored. The owner greeted some arrivals, one waitress had to serve every table,-the restaurant filling up rapidly (it is the only one by the busy marina,)... More

Visited here whilst staying at the Hotel Excelsior Palace which is a short walk away. Clearly the owner does not read Trip Advisor as as with many reviewers my wife and I found the food in this restaurant ok but the service quite poor. We had ham and melon, and skewed shrimp starters both good portion sizes and good taste.... More

right by the boat basin, across from the Hotel, this restaurant was a priome choice. Quiet and charming local, but sophisticated atmosphere, delicious food, moderately priced what more could an individual ask for... Try this unique restaurant. You will not be disappointed. try the local wine as well.

This was probably one of the top 4 of our meals in Italy - we had a great salad, my husband had a great spaghetti with vongole (the best in his life - 53 years) and I had a great shrimp as well. Nice atmosphere.
