Great find. This fish restaurant does fresh fish at reasonable prices. The quality is good and thus continues with lovely fresh bread and tasty fresh green local olive oil. The tuna carpaccio was excellent, the squid tasty and the swordfish moist and perfectly cooked. The local wine was reasonable and good value.

We had hoped to pay a return visit to Al Gabbiano but as it was a Sunday it was closed. This one, which is probably their sister restaurant, did not disappoint though some dishes we ordered were not available. Full of local people which is always a good recommendation. We had main courses only, seafood risotto, spaghetti with prawns and... More
