Only a small place with some tables overlooking the sea, along the pavement but the food is fantastic. The... read more

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 😉

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
