Good choice for dinner

Really nice place for dinner with friendly staff and good home wine. I would recommend two things - book a table and don't take the grilled fish (better oven, grill is dirty and thus bitter)

Some plus points, the menu is broader than some and dishes such as veal in tomato and fried anchovies were well executed. The starter of fish six ways was nice but somewhat lacking in finesse. Kids menu started well with pasta and then transitioned to deep fried chicken nuggets which were left. Seated outside our view was two rows of... More

Worrying sign with all negative reviews in Italian and all positive in English... Wish i'd trusted my instincts! Food mediocre, place pretty standard and regret going here considering how much good food there is around here...

This restaurant is in a really beautiful town. The service was excellent with the owner showing great pride for his wonderful restaurant! For starters I had spaghetti with seafood and pesto and my husband had crab gnocchi both of which were heavenly dishes! We followed this with fried anchovies and grilled vegetables and I still can't stop thinking about those... More

We just tried the fish and seafood platter for 2 and just loved it! Well prepared, with olive oil and salt as only seasoning as to not hide the perfect taste of the fish. The staff speaks a little English, is very attentive and tries its best to make your dinner as enjoyable as possible. Would definitively come back next... More

Raphael welcomes you, makes you feel at home and makes recommendations that are worth to follow. Try his risoto with sea fruit! It is the best ever. And his spagetti vongole is delicious! Will come back

Small cosy restaurant with fresh fish, sea food and flawless vitello (veal). Take your time and let the owner compose the perfect lunch for you. We chose our food (veal) but observed the other tables where they went with the flow. My mouth watered at the little friture followed by pasta and fish followed by mussels and rice and ...and...
