The restaurant itself is pretty basic, with shared tables, and therefore not outstanding if you want to celebrate anything. The food however is quite good and cheap.

We loved everything about this tiny local place. Ordered sardines, mackerel, and eel. All very good (probably eel was least favorite) fresh and tasty. Usually a wait but short, so have a beer or expresso at the counter and relax. A definite must try restaurant.
