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
