Class, and elegant restaurant. The best dish to try is the Aragosta with pasta, it is excellent and superb. You may also try the branzino sotto sale. Better if you reserve; especially at night.

This restaurant is a true hidden gem! (We found it only thanks to Tripadvisor.) You need to ring a doorbell to get in. White tablecloths give a fancy look but don't get scared, this restaurant suits well also for friends laughing and enjoying. No English...More

The menu is in Italian. The food is wonderful. I think the shrimp and clams were the best I have ever eaten. The pasta.....was so good. The setting is serene. Everyone seemed like a local. This was a great dinner.
