My advice is to book in advance to avoid disappointment. Because you will be disappointed if you don't eat here! By an absolute fluke, we managed to get a table without a reservation and just by walking in with our fingers firmly crossed but as...More

The hotel recommended (and I am always suspicious about it) but was really good. Down by the beach, at the corner, with a small terrace looking at the little bay, we had phenomenal fish. All very fresh they were grilled to perfection. Excellent Catarrato wine...More

I love marinated swordfish(starter), pistachio pasta(main). The staff is friendly and attentive. The food is extremely delicious. Memories of these dishes make me happy when I am home. Looking forward to coming back.
