Had a dinner here. I had a real traditional Italian dinner (antipasto, secondo, and primi) it was all just delicious!! And the waiter recommended a great wine! Also nice location by the sea! Can really recommend!

Ok, this place is as good as the reviews suggest!! Great staff, great food - and the view.... Breathtaking! The secret hint - you can go 'round the rock, arrive and park from the other side of town 😉

I ate here with my wife and my mother in law. For the first course we ordered the rice with shrimp and almonds, the pasta con le sarde, and the sea urchin spaghetti. All three were excellent and generously portioned. For the second course we ordered the mixed grilled fish (phenomenally fresh, and perfectly cooked) and the pistachio swordfish. The... More

What a great lunch, five of us loved it. Special mention to swordfish in pistachio crust and home made pasta dishes. Followed up with home made tiramisu. Beautiful location looking down on sea views and along rooflines. Shrimp and pistachio pasta also epic. Parking in via del foro. Younger family members say ooh nom nom 😊 well they are now... More

Stopped for lunch here because the view was so fabulous. On a warm day, the breeze off the water made it the perfect spot for lunch. I had fresh fish that was deliciously grilled with a delicate lemon sauce. It's located between the bus station and town and is well worth the walk.
