“Value for money, delicious and good portion after a long walk.”
Reviewed September 4, 2013 via mobile

Good restaurant, portion is good, price is reasonable. The steam mussles are bit salty though. Crab spaghetti is a must to try.

“fantastic experience for 16 late arrivers!”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

We showed up at Marina Piccola on Friday August 23, 2013 in 16 people at 11pm and were pleasantly surprised at how quickly the owner, Daniele, accomodated us! We had 2 servers exclusively for our group and had a terrific meal. We were so impressed with their attention to us, that we returned the next night -- this time with reservations. The service was a little slow, but what can you expect with a large group! The meal more than made up for the wait. The swordfish and tuna were outstanding, as was the walnut sauce ravioli. All the fish dishes (and the fish stew) were very tasty. There were many options for kids (we had 8 kids with us). Daniele and his brother, Leonardo, were also very personable and made us feel very welcome. I would highly recommend this restaurant to any small or large group!

“Better than we expected!”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

Given its prime location right on the water, we expected this would be a bit of a tourist trap and were pleasantly surprised! The food was very good, my husband had pasta with clams and raved about it. As seems to be more the rule than the exception, the service was lackluster with disinterested waiters and waitresses. The outside terrace fills up quickly and the inside is stuffy so best to reserve.

“Great view, terrible terrible service”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

I went there for the view.
The restaurant was not full, but the 02 waitress kept ignoring me. The brunette waitress seems to hate what she does. The blonde girl was less worse.
I ordered the anchovies which came bathed in oil and had no special taste.
I saw a lady asking for napkins in English because her husband was bleeding, and as neither of them understood what she needed, they simply turned their back to the desperate lady.
They showed no interest in helping people if they don't speak Italian.

You can definitely find a better place to eat with an ocean view.
