It is a nice and friendly restaurant where to taste a bit of Neapolitan cuisine. The food was nice and the costs are ok. You can taste some flavours from Napoli as well as the tasty desserts they have. The main dish, with mussels and fish I had was really nice!

Looks unassuming-but don't let this put you off. Food was wonderful and well-priced too. Service good, a great place to eat. I recommend the mussels and salmon pasta.

Grotta Azzurra is nice little restaurant with great local food. We tried pasta, pizza and fresh fish. All was very good. We can especially recommend the Misto Mare, the fresh fish a la ligure and the sparkling house wine. The pizza is top class, too. Prices are very moderate. We will be back.

The pizza Capriciosa was great. We ordered Taglietelle with Lobster, great and the Taglietelle Funghi, simple yet delicious. Very small but the service was very good. Better to reserve (prenotare) in advance
