Quality food if a tad pretentious..

Nice restaurant offering quality food. A modern twist on traditional food. OK service, nothing to praise or complain about. There is a Second World War theme going on at the restaurant as there are lots of pictures of soldiers and aircraft on the walls. OK location, nothing to see of the harbour... read more

100% recommend this restaurant!! Wonderful service and even better food. Seafood is very fresh. As the owner says, "Excellent cooking is hard work, and we are willing to work." (Try the Gnocci!)

this restaurant is in the marina area - and specialises in seafood - the spaghetti and the Milanese are also worth trying

We arrived around 7:30PM and there was only one other table of 4 there. Location would be better if your view was of the water and marina instead of boats awaiting repairs, which blocked the view of the water and marina. Service was attentive, but once more people arrived, it got slow. Only Luca and one waitress for entire restaurant.... More

This looks like a super expensive place because of where it is located but it was not. The food was delicious and the service was super good. The pistachio ice cream unbelievable. Great fish as well.

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
