was there last week for my work. This is an amazing fish place !! We started with a great plate of raw fish, then grilled calamares and then fish cooked in salt. The dinner was amazing. Especially the grilled calamares. The place is a bit exclusive.

With a modern and light decor, the star of this restaurant is the fish and seafood. They bring several starters (all were nice), but make sure you order your main course or you will be totally full. Friendly fast and efficient service I recommend for business or pleasure

This small suburban restaurant (15 mins by taxi from the city centre during the evening) features an open display of fish & shellfish. The menu, available in English, does have some non-fish dishes but it is clear what the star is here. Fish tartare featured a large plate of raw fish, tuna, bream, squid , some simply sliced sashimi style,... More

Any dish from starter to main (even desserts) are creatively prepared. They all reach high standards of taste, the seafood/fish are definitely a must for this place. Excellent and efficient service.

I dropped into this restaurant for lunch, just because I was doing my monthly course at the school next door. Nevertheless this restaurant is known for fish, Pepe and his colleague were very friendly to offer me a variety of vegetarian dishes. And since then I have't look for any other places for lunch break, because you never get bored... More

This is an excellent choice for fish lovers as this is the restaurant's speciality. I recommend the branzino al sale grosso (sea bass cooked in a crust of sea salt): the fish is succulent, the flavour rich and subtle, a pure delight. If you have a good appetite, I suggest starting with an antipasto misto, follow with a primo of... More

Mixed criticism found the service variable. We thought service was good and the food nicely prepared, with a range of ways to enjoy your fish. If you are looking for a reasonable fish restaurant, with a spread of good inexpensive wines, and do not mind travelling a little from the centre, then this place is fine. Prices are higher than...

I have been there for a business dinner. We had row fish entries, quite good. I then had a pasta with riccio, not very special, but ok. My co-eater had a roasted branzino and were commenting positively. Thep service was good, kind and quick. Place pleasant. Averall ok.

Not central (but in the leafy area of the Fiera) but superb food in this great place. Fish and seafood dominate the scene and the quality of the fresh food and the traditional but impeccable way it's cooked are remarkable. Molluscs and crustaceans offer a great choice in the starters, and as mains - together with fresh fish of all... More
