Quaint Local

This restaurant is just up the road from the beach and on the road where Cable Car and bus stop are. It is set back off the main road but surprisingly quiet, with a small frontage, though there are more tables in the back, so don't be put off if it looks full. They speak a little English, so it's... read more

We were staying at a nearby hotel and had noticed this pizza restaurant with wood-fired oven. Having had a top-quality pizza at the restaurant next door a day earlier, we were looking forward to what a specialist pizza restaurant could offer. We ended up disappointed. The service was friendly enough, but the pizza was a big let-down - I don't... More

It's right on the road but the pizza was MUCH better than regular pizza from a roadhouse joint. Excellent wine selection. Great pizza, did I say that already?

Good tasting Sea Bream, outdoor seating in front and rear. Beware biting insects in rear outside seating area. This resataurant is located on the via nazionale road at the bottom of the funivia near the beach. The service is very good, food very well cooked and beautifully presented, but quite expensive. We had Sea Bream served with 3 small pieces... More
