Lovely lunch

The series of hot "antipasti" di mare is close to paradise... and "chitarrina all'astice sgusciato" complete the experience

i went to this spot a dicember evening midweek. Got big choice of fresh fish, lightly cooked, and an astonishing spaghetti alla chitarra garnished with shrimps. Welcome too has been stunning, as well waiters and service. One flaw? No wifi

This was by far our best dinner in Italy over several years/holidays. I'm not pretending to be a food-critic and so some might share a different opinion. We ordered the menu presented on the leaflet in the lobby (menu avaible from 9/9 til 19/9). exquisitely fresh and tastefull (fish)food like paintings on a plate. we enjoyed 5 courses for a... More

After 20 some years, I finally asked the owner who the chef is as we were praising him for the consistency of their food all these years. I continued to say I would... More

The restaurant was much better, in any sense, in the previous location. Even the quality of food has decreased, not just the atmosphere.

The restaurant is very well know for fish-based dishes. And rightly so. Food is delicious. I would reccomend the "crudi" which are the row-fish starters. Pasta is also made to pertfection. Service is perfect too. On weekends they also have live music (piano bar) which contriobuites to the nice atmosphere. Unfortunately, this comes at a price: this is clearly not... More
