I dont get all the negative comments, we had a really nice fish based meal. Ok its not a michelin star restaurant but for a Gallipoli dinner out in the main turistic area its perfect! Staff very polite and fast service! Thank you

I ordered linguini all'astice... it was the worst food I've ever had. There was an EMPTY lobster shell...NO meat on my plate. First I thought it was meant to be decorative...but then I saw that another table had the same meal an there was meat in the lobster tail... so I suppose I got the tourist version of the meal....

Only the location was good, the rest really below average. Three tiny portions of antipasti, really average primo and secondo, and the wine was terrible, have tried the rosso and rosato. Would never return to this place.
