We walked by this restaurant while walking around the old town. The staff was outside talking at 5pm and we returned about 8. We sat in an alcove which looked like we were hanging over the cliff! Great views of the sunset over the Adriatic....More

We were delighted with this lunch stop. We all know Italian food can be delicious, but this elevated some common seafood dishes to another level. Beautifully chargrilled octopus, a jam jar full of steaming yet delicately cooked seafood (in a gentle orange), plus a refined...More

This was our second pranzo at Porta di Basso, having been there a year ago. To give this six stars, which it deserves, call in advance and reserve the terraza/balcone for lunch. We have eaten on this terrace twice. The railing you are against is...More
