Modern atmosphere, fresh seafood and great service

There are not a lot of upscale fine dining restaurants in the area so if its fine dining you want then you can't go wrong with this place. The ambiance is modern minimalism, clean lines and good ambient lighting. Our server was Gian Carlo, he was very helpful and spoke very good english. He even... read more

We entered this place after we read the comments in TripAdvisor. It's a nice place with very nice taste. Strongly recommend for sea food.

This was a very, very pleasant experience! The location is pretty unassuming (no terrace with a grand view etc.) but the first thing you see upon entering is a large fresh seafood selection on display, a nice touch which tells you these people take their subject matter seriously. The dining room is a small windowless space with about 5 tables... More

Food is good but nothing special and it is quite expensive, service is super slow, Federico the guy serving us didn't have an idea what he was doing, expected alot better for the money we paid.

My wife and I found the restaurant by passing by because it had the look of a doing well place, it's a nice surprise and we had a great dinner, we ordered lobster pasta, it's done very nicely by every standard. The service was great too. I am sure you will enjoy the way we did.

Our Sicilian friend recommended the restaurant so we booked a table for Christmas Eve. The four of us had a wonderful meal, suggested by the restaurant owner who gave us a great insight to the fish and Sicilian wine. The desserts were excellent and the overall experience unforgettable. We'll definitely return next time we are in Sicily.

The food is good, the service is great, in my opinion the difference in quality to other restaurants in the area did not justify the price difference.

Absolutely fabulous! We stopped for a casual dinner and ended up with the perfect dining experience. The owner provided us with his recommendations and tailored a special dinner for us, perfectly suited for our appetite, accompanied by a perfectly fitting wine. What can I say... just go there and enjoy! You won't regret it!

We thoroughly enjoyed the beautifully cooked fresh fish which we chose from the counter.Paulo's (the proprietor)knowledge and passion about food and wines is fantastic. We went with his recommendation of wines for the main mea and desserts and were not disappointed. The meal at this restaurant was... More

This is an excellent fish restaurant. You won't be disappointed. It is not cheap, but fish of this quality is very hard to find at any price. The "crudo" is the best you can find anywhere and is reason to come seek this place out. The wine list is excellent and the service is also great.
