The service is friendly and attentive and the menu features many more seafood dishes than the typical local restaurant. The warm vegetable “house” appetizer was superb and the Caprese salad had a LOT of very tasty cheese. The portion size for both of these was quite generous. Our main dishes were, by comparison, just OK. The lamb chops were tasty but overly salty and the sea bass was somewhat plain.
Contrary to what was written here by another reviewer, we had no trouble finding the restaurant. Have a good map or locate it on line and you’ll have no trouble finding it. However, the restaurant is a little bit off the beaten path so be prepared for a 20-25 minute walk from, say, the area of the Duomo.
