“Fine food, aseptic welcome”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

Gorgious location, right on the beach. It's possible to eat inside and outside, on a shaded terrace, in view of the sea. Well dressed and extremely clean tables, whose closeness doesn't grant any privacy.

Excellent food: we eat fresh and well done fish plates, sided by a small bottle of cool Vermentino.

Correct and timely table service, right for a work lunch.

Clean and cosy toilets, with facilities for handicapped people.

But: - the request of two separate bills was completely ignored; - the welcome and the goodbay were cool and careless. We didn't feel at home and, considering the high level of the restaurant, in that moment absolutely not crowdy, this is a significative deficiency.

75 € for two dishes of pasta (the fish sauce was delicious), one fish appetizer, one fish main plate, two expressos and half a bottle of wine. Plentiful portions, right price considering the place.

“Not necessarily a good choice for teens in your group.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2012

We are a family of 5 from the US visiting in the beginning of June. This was a time of year that the area was not crowded at all. It was my son's 15th birthday and we were looking for a nice meal. The restaurant was quite beautiful and we were seated outside. The waitstaff seemed to spend a lot of time waiting on the other tables and ignored us. It took quite a while to for them to take our order. It also took me several tries of waving my hand to get attention to get some bread brought to us where as the other tables were brought bread right away. Overall the service was not very good for us but was very good for others. The couple that were running the restaurant were very helpful when I was able to get them to come to our table.
The food we ordered was delicious. My sons loved the clam pasta they ordered. I ordered a grilled vegetables and seafood and it was very nice. The dessert that was the house specialty was excellent. All though all of the food we ordered was delicious, the menu was intimidating to my teens and they had a very difficult time finding something that appealed to them. I would return but probably not with my teens.

“Good Place but food is totally average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2012 via mobile

We had two courses. The appetizers were really mediocre. The grilled fish was main course . That was OK.

“Good food but not so nice staff”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2012

A smile could not hurt... And in fact I don't think that the great sea food compensates for the lack of smiles in this place. But if you just want great food, it's a great place.

“Musquito paradise”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2012

We went for dinner and sat outside. It looked pretty nice before we were attacked by an army of musquitos. I am not exaggerating. It was like 100 of them flying all over. The food was ok but nothing to write home about. I will never ever return.
