Grear outdoor seating. Make a reservation if you want to dine outside. The tables make look free but all are reserved. Been to this place in 2010 and 2014. Fresh seafood, great wine, and lovely views of the town.

Nothing special here. Service adequate. Had seafood risotto for 2 more clams than anything not an abundance of other. It was served hot. Tiramuso served like a pudding in a cup.
