Superb, unrivalled and yet somehow completely unpretentious. Delightful service. Fish that is so fresh you can see it being brought into the restaurant from the fishing boats berthed immediately outside. Note: the rare (read: raw) baby tuna is not for the faint-hearted. It is like eating the sea.
The best dish I tasted in there was the spaghetti with baby squid. The pasta was firm and the squid was tender. In Britain, you order that dish in most restaurants and it will be the other way around. And twice as expensive.
The wine list is extensive and impressive. But more impressive still, when we asked for advice between two competing bottles, we were recommended to take the one which was half the price of the other. Now THAT'S the test of a trustworthy establishment.
This is high quality dining in a smart but relaxed environment. I honestly can't recommend it highly enough.
