We tried this restaurant based on the Tripadvisor reviews and we were not disappointed. Although it looks like an ordinary restaurant from the street, the food is definitely well prepared! My husband, my son and I had great food from appetizers to dessert!More

Climbing down steps to below street level, you feel as if you entered a pirates cove. Maritime decor, stone walls, fisherman's nets and paraphernalia. A tiny restaurant with lots of atmosphere. We were early before the evening rush-hour. The service very good and I had...More

Nice deco but average food. Pizza pescatora, penne, spag vongole, pizza calzone. Pizza pescatore only shrimp, vongole,cozze but lots of them. For me the dough was neither crusty nor thick, not easy to cut. Some spiderwebs.

Description
2 Air-conditioned indoor rooms, pets, specialty fish soup, fried but not suggest everything is cooked in a wood oven dishes, side dishes, desserts, pizzas and a much healthier return to the good taste of the food of other times, pasta homemade selection of raw materials and so much love in the culinary arts, local Ciliaci not suitable for street pizza and pasta, but if a slight list, there are no problems, we are already the name of a structure that describes it (buried) we are sorry for the disabled but we are in the future hope to be able to satisfy them with outdoor seating. For those who know the local taste. Or as the song says AND EC LIKE TO EAT AND DRINKS. (Even though I am a teetotaler :)) BY.Chef Vincenzo
