It is a rather hidden away little gem of a restaurant, but absolutely worth the hunt.
The menu is predominantly seafood, and they do have an english menu, just ask. We stumbled through the italian menu (can only recognise the more famous fish and shellfish, not things like "mantis prawns", which they do have) before our discomfort was noticed by a waitress who furnished us with an english menu.
The strozzapreti with mantis prawns was very good, and the vongole was not bad too. most of all we liked their prawns on skewers, which were grilled to perfection. the gratinated scallops, not so much. i find i'm not a big fan of italian styled gratin, but those who like it will like the capesante gratinate.
The restaurant provides complimentary biscotti and some green liquor (centerbe?) after the meal, as well as a pretty interesting bread basket before with charcoal bread. The owner is a really jolly person and you can tell everyone there loves to eat, which makes the atmosphere very congenial. I would definitely return there for the wonderful seafood
