In what seems to be one of the ugliest towns in italy we found one of the best meals ever eaten in Italy! The fish is so fresh and prepared in a delicate manner. Every dish was excellent and the desert was perfect. Try the ricotta with vanilla and rum gelato! A great stop before you take the ferry over.
