Called in one evening without reservation. Nice menu, with daily special fresh fish selection. For starters we had the mixed fish-seefood platter, each fish was marinated and accompanied with different fruits. It was an absolutely fantastic combination of flavours and textures. Both of our mains were grilled/pan seared fish, fresh vegetables, salad. No room for dessert, but all was washed... More

The secret is supposed to be the grey Neopolitan Pizza, but the real secret is the swoon-worthy lemon sorbet served in a whole frozen lemon- il migliore!

We stopped by for lunch and sat on the beautiful terrace. Food was very good. Service was outstanding. We were not rushed at all.

Beautiful spot on the beach to enjoy a few beers, some ice cream and watch the waves come in. A little pricey but great quality and great service.

Superb setting with very attentive waiters, with nothing too much trouble. The meal was excellent as was the wine. Would definitely re-visit.

Beautiful restaurant .. fabulous views from the terrace. The waiters/service was excellent! We opted for the tasting menu which was €70pp. Pricey but delicious! 7 or 8 courses so a lot of food but every course was better than the previous. I didn't fancy the lamb off the tasting menu so they changed it for fish no problem,which was great.... More

We stayed at the Covo Dei Saraceni Hotel in late September, 2016. During the course of our stay, we took a cooking class in their "small" kitchen and saw up close how the food is made. We enjoyed the fruits of our labors later at lunch. During the course, we found that every single item served at the restaurant and... More

We visited on a Thursday night just before 8pm, without a reservation, and got the last table in the front row of the terrace. If you have your heart set on this restaurant I would recommend a reservation as it was busy. Lovely views, close to the sea and an attractive terrace setting. There is also indoor seating. The staff... More

Comfortable lunch. Wished the service had slowed down. We had time to wallow! Wonderful service. We shared a tomato and mozzarella salad and my husband had ravioli and I had clams and mussels. Very good wines and coffee. Only the shared lemon cake not to my liking: it was not what I expected as it was creamy and not a... More

We liked the terrace and the posted menu peaked our interest. We shared a lobster appetizer and my wife had the pasta with prawns which had a good homemade taste. I had the veal cutlet sprinkled with crushed coffee beans which was wonderful. Desserts were also very creative. The service was what you would expect at a high end restaurant.... More
