If you love crude fish this is the right place to go. You can order and have a dinner just with a selection of starters and you will be amazed by both taste and presentation.
Definitely a place to go.

We've been coming to this restaurant now for over 7 years and try and visit whenever we are in the area. That makes for 3-4 trips a year ... and we still look forward to our visit everytime. Even our 5 and 7 year old boys ask to go back each time.

The dining room is right on the beach - when the sun is shining it's beautifully light and airy. If it's warm, the windows disappear completely so you feel you are outside. If it's too hot, or cold it's all air conditioned. Decor is simple. The beach through the windows is all the backdrop you need.

The menu is short and simple. Favourites of ours are the Mixed Seafood salad starter (Insalate misto al mare), the seafood bruscetta, and the frittura. The absolute highlight for me everytime is the Spaghetti alle Vongole, which I consider to be the best in world.

There's a comprehensive wine list which features not only a great selection of local wines, but also wines from all over Italy. The owner is a real wine buff and provided you speak Italian he'll happily recommend something good.

Prices are at the high end given this is not a particularly flashy place, but you are paying for location and quality of ingredients here. We usually end up with a bill of around €120 for two courses including wine and ice cream for kids, but if you go for the full 4 courses you'll pay a lot more.

We'll be back in July .... perhaps see you there.
