A proper Mediterranean quality cuisine experience. Especially beautiful at night if you can sit outside and take in the view of the harbour while enjoying a tasty meal. Vibrant place with a warm ambience.

Just back from sale e pepe in the harbour. Absolutely amazing views from the terrace and I had a full on frontal view of the harbour. Busy restaurant but you wouldn't know it as the service was great and our waitress had a very good sense of humour. I wasn't very hungry as I'd had lasagne for lunch and ordered... More

We visited this restaurant for lunch. The service was impeccable The food was really professionally cooked. We had pasta for starters and fish/meat for mains. They presented us with very good complimentary bread stuffed with olives and butter. They also provided gluten free pasta and bread.

There were no tables outside but they found one which wasn't reserved till much later. The service was brilliant...friendly and lots of humour! The food was excellent but portion sizes are massive. I had 2 starters and failed on both...wish I could have eaten more as they were delicious. Couldn't fault it. 😊 And wish there were more opportunities to... More

We made a reservation in order to secure a good table on the terrace but were offered a table indoors when we arrived. After a short conversation with the staff we were immediately moved to one of the best tables and served some outstanding Mediterranean food! Service, location and meal all very good.

Elevated view of Porto Masso marina but be sure to book as outside terrace is quite small. No complaints at all with the menu, food, or service but a bit pricey in the mid €20's to €30 range but food was delicious.
