I have decided that my new rule is always avoid any restaurant where the staff or owner actively try and encourage you to eat in their restaurant.
The manager was extrememely friendly as it looked good and was quite empty at the time we decided to have dinner here. Obviously because it was so quiet, we had the almost undivided attention of the manager and also seemed to attract the interest of the kitchen staff.
My wife really only wanted a plate of pasta, and doesn't really like seafood or fish that much, but we were "guided" by the manager to try the local pasta and sauce in a small portion, and he was also suggesting the Snapper cooked in a salt crust.
The menu was then taken away and from then on we were in the hands of the manager. I cannot fault the food, it was delicious. They brought us Foccacia with the best tomatos we had all week and then the local pasta, mine with a lovely seafood sauce and my wifes with amatricianna sauce, bacon, tomato and basil and although a very small taster portion was delicious. Then the fish was brought out and there was a fish each, despite the fact that we had said that my wife was not that keen on fish. However it was very good, although a little too salty (which could also be said of the rest of this chefs food!) We had a lovely bottle of red wine and I ended it with a coffee and we were given 2 complimentary limoncello's. However, we then were given the bill and it was 92 euros. The fish alone was 53 euros. I know I should have enquired up front or questioned it after, but I didn't like to make a fuss and as the menu had looked reasonable, I expected to pay about 60 - 70 euros. So in summary as I said the food is very good, but make sure you are not led to have more exoensive food than you might want.
