Great food for affordable prices. Variety of grilled fish and meat plus pasta with all kinds of sea food. Nice atmosphere of home cooking. You may also expect free digestive drink. Highly recommend!!!

We had a wonderful lunch of pasta (Vongole and Polpo) and wine with a super surprise with an orange and onion salad as a palate cleanser. Delicious food and great waiting staff - lovely place for lunch!
