Lovely seaside restaurant with great food and cozy atmosphere. The staff were very kind and friendly and let us in before official opening time to escape the cold. Great food especially the Tuna in pistachio. Highly recommended.

EXCELLENT Food and absolutely lovely and welcoming service. I had one of the best gastronomic experiences in Italy, at this restaurant. I highly recommend the Frutti di Mare pasta, for any first comers. Muito obrigada pela hospitalidade Ana Paula :) Molto buono!

We had a late dinner there. Four strangers in an empty restaurant. Before we took seats everything looked very attractive with seaside location and marine decor inside. But soon after we sat down nothing more pleased to us. Extremely slow and unprofessional service. Two waiters...making intentional errors in order to overprice the bill, unless we spoke to them quite good and communicative Italian. The microscopic pieces of "orata" fish. Everything hugely overpriced. Honestly saying the quality of food was medium or even below medium. The worse gastronomic experience in Southern Italy we had ever since. Later, the local people in Marina di Ascea told us that "LoSciabecco" is the place one should avoid at any price and our experience was nothing exceptional.More

After reading some of the positive reviews here and getting a recommendation from our local landlord we visited during our holidays for dinner. It was probably the worst experience we had during our trip to Italy - and the most expensive dinner too.i don't mind...paying good money for good food, but this turned out to be a disappointment. Setting is nice, but the rest was underwhelming. Service was cold - the head waiter (?) - bold guy - must have picked up his service attitude in Eastern Europe (having said that, some of the younger staff were more friendly). The food was bland and we had the impression that the chef was trying to present it in a "fancy" high-end way that just did not work. There are better options around.More

This is a rigorously seafood-only restaurant, nicely set on a wooden structure on the beachfront of Ascea, with pleasantly clean white interiors and views of the see from three sides. I visited a few times over the years, and at this point I really had...to write a review. All choices on the menu are creative dishes from the chef, using fresh local seafood. I have tried a good fraction of them, and I can testify that they are all great choices. But I am particularly fond of anchovy-based dishes, like the excellent spaghetti sciabecco. The service had some shortcomings last year, but I must say that this year has returned to a good level, even if most waiters are young seasonals. The wine list could benefit from being expanded a bit. Fair prices. Overall highly recommended.More

Very nice place to eat, varied menu but mainly fish and seafood, try the tuna tartare it's delicious, very nice staff but they don't speak English, also the menu is only in Italian, I speak fluent Italian but imagine the menu would be difficult to...understand for non Italian speakers.More

We went to dinner here our first night in Ascea and was a pleasant experience. The food was really good, fresh and well prepared. The stall and owner were very friendly and accommodating. If we had stayed longer I definitely would have gone back.

Delicious food and great service. Best ambiance in town. Pasta and seafood here are my favourite. Can't wait to go back.

Excellent ambiance and service by Gino and his wife. Good food and wine. Long trip from home to Ascea to visit my daughter recently married in Napoli and to meet the Italian parents of her husband.
