Location and contact

For almost 50 years now, the Al Bagatto Restaurant has been providing this wonderful city a place to try the best fresh fish around. This has sometimes meant offering an alternative all-meat menu or even closing the restaurant when the quality fish that you know us for, and which distinguishes us, was not available.

We had dinner there after having booked. Necessary because the room is rather small. Service is very kind but the quality of food is just medium. Some seafood we had was not very fresh. The bill was really too expensive for what we had.

We had a lovely dinner at this small family-run restaurant. Delicious fritto misto and tuna tartare. Charming service and excellent wine recommendations. The grappa was also very tasty! A quiet and delightful night out.
