We enjoyed this stop after having a few beers at the Stout Beer Shop & Pub around the corner. There isn't much English spoken here but we managed to get a few stuffed croissants and few slices of "spongy" pizza. Super cheap, and it seems that a lot of locals stop here. We had to get a number the line... More

This is the place where you can find some typical street food. Fried rise balls called arancine, calzoni with prosciutto and mozzarella and many many kind of croissants. It is inexpensive, it is simple food (be aware, many things are fried) and it is the way to know what young locals eat "on the fly" when they are hungry.

1€ for an arancino, a good one! Atmosphere is very rustic, so better take your food with you and have it at the harbor.
