Superb meal. We ordered mixed sea food antipasto and fresh swordfish ending with strawberries and gelato accompanied by a local wine. The service was friendly, helpful and efficient. We enjoyed the beautiful view for two hours + without a concern in the world. Highly recommend.

Great location on the port overlooking the boats and harbor. The food and service were very good, fresh fish was excellent and the creative antipasti including stuffed mussels was outstanding. We had a great dinner at this restaurant.

The food is good but the service and welcome is very poor unless you are a local or a well heeled Italian.Tourists however respectable are wasting their money.

L'altro Eden is one of the best restaurants to be found in the city! Guide Michelin never fails. In case you are not an Italian, I suggest to ask fot the catch of the day or just follow the suggestion of the waiter. Why? Because this is a restaurant typically frequented by upscale italians and that's the way they order... More

This restaurant promises much, but runs the risk of delivering little. It is possible to eat well here as we have found over the last six years. However, you must select your dishes very carefully. In our experience it is better to go "off piste" and ask what is available that is not shown on the menu. In that case,... More

Nice little setting on the harbor, with outdoor seating and a view of all the boats. I liked that there where a couple of casual pleases next door, where you could have a drink before or after dinner Fish was good. Spaghetti with clams was outstanding. But the real sleeper was the octopus. Basically, steamed/poached octopus, then packed in gelatin... More

Nothing was outstanding on the evening we ate here. In front of our table were bundles on the dock that detracted from the view. The salad was plain and uncreative. Although the fish was tasty, the servers were not particularly interested in us.

This is a very popular (with the locals) harbor waterfront fish restaurant. We had possibly the best Branzinno we can ever recall (20 trips to Italy in past 30 years). It was their simple, but classic preparation using whole fish, white wine, potatoes and herbs baked in the oven. Absolutely superb. For the regulars and larger groups they seem to... More
