Had octopus salad for appetizer, and pasta tagliolini with calamari shrimps, and mussels. There was too much oil in the pasta, and the shrimps were not deveined. For dessert I've had a lemon sorbet which was ok. Service was a little bit slow. Little bit cold. Quality could be improved for the required price.

A fish restaurant overlooking the Adriatic. Good range of pasta. And you can have Ostriche, Lobster and other fish from the fresh outside pool!

We had lunch here. We each had the fish of the day and shared a salad and fries. With a coke and a bottle of mineral water the bill was €53 which we thought expensive. My wife was not convinced the fish really weighed what the bill said (you pay by weight)! The salad was okay but not the freshest.... More

Any restaurant that sells fresh fish from a counter on the roadside and then has a restaurant overlooking the sea is one worth trying... Very traditional in style and service. Seemed to attract local families so a good atmosphere. And the fish was definitely fresh even if the presentation was rather simple. Have had better. But have also had much... More

Another balmy evening eating al fresco by a full supermoon in a cloudless sky. For those who enjoy chewing on rubbery seafood this restaurant is very good. Me, I prefer meat, but only one meat choice was on offer, so I had no choice. However, it was good and enjoyable. Wine not overpriced, service adequate, so on the whole highly... More

Taking my niece there almost every evening after dinner (or might be her taking me there instead). They have a lot of different ice cream flavors and obviously you should try Pino Pinguino if you like chocolate. The staff is always extremely friendly and sometimes they give me a discount or give my niece free ice-cream.

Unfortunately I don't eat Oysters - a shame as clearly Al Buco specialises in them - and most other sea-food. The have the largest display of fresh oysters, mussels, etc etc I've ever seen with a specialist 'chef'' waiting to deal with new orders. Good wine list and advice. Just one meat dish for any non-fish eaters! Good range of... More
