I was actually on a mission to buy wine, and "tripped" over Pescheria! I love the fact that it's all fish, and there is outside seating in a small garden area. My advice is,: don't go if it is to be a "rush" meal, and...More

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel. We hadn't booked but were found a table outside and waited for the menu. No menu! You choose from the fish on ice displayed inside. Pricing was a bit vague. We received a cold fish starter platter which...More

My partner and I visited this evening. We were welcomed warmly, given excellent advise on which fish to choose and looked after during our meal. The fish and shellfish were clearly very fresh and of very good quality. We would have preferred our fish to...More
