A great spot to stop for an aperitivo/drinks, with a nice view of the harbor and town. The service was very slow and the waiter was rude. After ordering it took approximately 20 minutes to get our drinks. The ambiance is great but the service is hit or miss.

The young man who seated us was rather rude and disinterested in answering our questions about the menu. But the proprietor, who came right over to the table, was cordial and helpful. The octopus and potato antipasto was delicious. The pasta with seafood was tasty, but unfortunately the shrimp in it were dry, not fresh, not even fresh frozen.

Will not recommend this restaurant to anyone. The food was below average and the waitress, not in uniform treated us with disdain. The fish was burned, and the Risotto was a mushy porridge. We asked for still water and were given sparkling. They advertise free Wifi but the waitress refused to give us the password.

Food and service not good. General disdain for customers. They charge you an extra 3 euros per person added as a cover charge. Many better choices.

Chose this place because of the location (right on sea front), good menu and a helpful and friendly waiter. They serve great house wine (€10 litre), fish antipasti was different and delicious, seafood (no cozze as husband allergic) risotto for 2 tasty and salad plentiful with a variety of ingredients (not just a few leaves). Even though the shift had... More

Late Sunday afternoon lunch by the sea was spoilt by poor good and slow waiters. Won't reccomend anyone eating there. It may just have been the restaurants 'off' day but when you're spending around €60 for two to eat. Am I asking too much for a decent plate of food??

Lots of restaurants to choose from on the waterfront and we choose the worst! Thinking their set meals would be good and value for money we ordered. Long wait for starters and had to ask twice for the wine. Starters arrived and were so poorly put together we knew we should have done a runner and not looked back. Being... More
