Was staying at a house near by (La Pergola) and decided to head down after hearing so many good things. As mentioned the food was very tasty. Sat outside. Since it was evening and we didn't make a reservation (no view), may have been better to sit inside to get away from the smokers. Our group had a number of different dishes including: Spaghetti ale Vongole (pasta and clams), pasta with basel pesto and shrimp, Marinato di Pesce spada (raw swordfish), Involtini di pesce spada (swordfish rolls), Cozze alla pescatora (mussels), and Fritto di calamari*,gamberi e peace (fried calamari, sardines, and shrimp). We also had Sicilian cake for desert. The staff was friendly and gave us advice when they thought we may be ordering too much food. Since everything was good, you can't go wrong with what you order.
