I have been coming here for years during August holidays and was so sad to see the state of affairs. This place used to be tried and true. Good pizza, good fish (especially calamari with herbs) and fast service. All our family could come (about 15 of us) and count on a nice time. A summer staple. Well something happened... More

I had the Seafood risotto twice, that is how amazing it was. Lots of food for the price you pay. We had a larger group of 8 people, we came when they just opened up, got to see the sunset from our seats. Love the atmosphere and service.

The food was very nice, the service was good. In the city center there are not many restaurants. This restaurant is close to the beach, easy parking as well.

We have lunch here every Saturday when we are in Italy as it is open out of season at weekends. We have always had excellent locally caught fish, great pasta and very good local wine. The service is always very good, always busy, extensive menu, we always ask for the fish of the day and have never been disappointed. Highly... More

...but you can eat many different kind of food, mostly seafood and typical from Calabria. The pizza is one of the best in Amantea, very fast and friendly service.

Really excellent pizzas and great service. Don't let the cheesy name/odd Mexican theme scare you away. This place is tip top!

This is a place that I have recommended to out of town people who asked me in the middle of the street in Amantea. This is a place where I feel comfortable going because i know that they will go out of the way to satisfy my needs and my palate!!! Service is great and the waiters/waitresses are always friendly....

Park on the strada along the beach, walk a bit and then head here for the garden setting, the efficient service, and the consistently good pizza.

We went there for lunch looking forward to eat pizza but they didn't serve it at that time. Only evening from 7pm. We choose pasta and it was very nice. Staff is speaking English, and service is really nice. It's hard to eat anything at siesta times, so you need to try to eat at this times. It's open between... More
