“Average price fish restaurant, not delicious but ok..”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2011

Make sure to reserve on weekends cause it is always very busy..
The atmosphere is nice: modern and fresh furniture with some traditional touch here and there.
The food is ok. Not fantastic but not bad at all..
I would strongly recommend the Degustazione di Tartare (a selection of seasoned finely chopped raw fish like tuna, salmon and sea bass), and the Spiedini di totantetti (tattler skewer) covered with breadcumbs and herbs... In addition, to taste the real traditional seafood in italy, I would try the stewed mussels with croutons (cozze alla marinara).
Maybe it is not the best and delicious seafood in town but a good compromise between quality and reasonable price.

“Good seafood in interesting ways”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2011

Nice Mediterranean-style setting; to reach your table you walk alongside the kitchen, in full view behind glass walls, among seaside and fish snapshots that seem to hail from much broader oceans.

Good, rich plates of fresh and diverse seafood and some very interesting dishes such as eggplant parmigiana with mackerel and smoked scamorza cheese.

Be sure to check out the day's specials: there I stumbled upon a very interesting and plentiful tuna goulash, with big chunks of prime meat pleasantly contrasting with the light tomato sauce with the obvious paprika and other more surprising central Europe inland herbs like cumin, clove, celery.
A gorgeous way to stretch yesterday's would-be tuna tartare or rare steaks, I suppose.

Two points to watch out for, if very acceptable on balance:
Oysters are especially small - great for those plentiful plateaus, less fulfilling if taken alone.
Wìne by the glass: I welcome restaurants that do provide this option, and accept their want and need to charge more for it. Still, be sure to compare the price with a bottle's, as your second glass may easily pay for a full bottle.
