You have to reserve a table if you want to eat here. Small restaurant, very friendly, filled with locals, great food, reasonable prices, near the aquarium. We had a great time and ate so much! Definitely recommended.

This is pure yummy, one of the most memorable dinners in Italy! Honest, definitely local and fresh food, as simple and beatiful as it gets in Italy. Or we haven't had the best yet, least not in the fancier places. Pasta & pesto were hand-made,...More
