Description: Those who love the sea, although not love to fish, you know that you can get lost staring fishermen, side by side, on the docks or vessels; patients, taciturn, often just boys, waiting for the moment when the line is a tendency, is to bend the barrel and forces are opposed, on the one hand and on the other the angler fish. The moment you step in line with a fisherman usually starts to tell their stories, often real and other fruit of the imagination; was in one of these occasions that I began to hear about her, "the bone", rather than a fish a legend: so called because so thin that the bones you seemed to see it. There are fish with no strength or luck, not speed or cunning but of a mixture of all it does is that nobody can capture them. Everyone knew, everyone had a legend about it, there were those who said it had broken the barrel even though he had nowhere near the strength of a shark, who had gnawed the network while not having the teeth of barracuda. ​​Among these I tried with everything I had learned in my years of observation, I felt baits ranging from worms, bread and even Nutella but the few times I saw her, he always managed to escape me; one day, while I was on the deck of the vessel, sipping a chilled white wine, took the bait: shrewd eyes, silvery scales but especially lean to make an impression for the emotion the wine I was drinking I fell into the water and at that moment "the bone "leap 'out of the water, in all its thinness and with a bite severed a line that would stand up to a swordfish. Since that time the fish disappeared and no fisherman was able to sight it more. From time to time on the pier meeting objects coming from the sea, an alarm clock, a boot ... I like to think that they are gifts of my friend "the bone" and as such I keep them jealously.

Reviewed February 23, 2011

Make sure to reserve on weekends cause it is always very busy..
The atmosphere is nice: modern and fresh furniture with some traditional touch here and there.
The food is ok. Not fantastic but not bad at all..
I would strongly recommend the Degustazione di Tartare (a selection of seasoned finely chopped raw fish like tuna, salmon and sea bass), and the Spiedini di totantetti (tattler skewer) covered with breadcumbs and herbs... In addition, to taste the real traditional seafood in italy, I would try the stewed mussels with croutons (cozze alla marinara).
Maybe it is not the best and delicious seafood in town but a good compromise between quality and reasonable price.

“Good seafood in interesting ways”
Reviewed February 12, 2011

Nice Mediterranean-style setting; to reach your table you walk alongside the kitchen, in full view behind glass walls, among seaside and fish snapshots that seem to hail from much broader oceans.

Good, rich plates of fresh and diverse seafood and some very interesting dishes such as eggplant parmigiana with mackerel and smoked scamorza cheese.

Be sure to check out the day's specials: there I stumbled upon a very interesting and plentiful tuna goulash, with big chunks of prime meat pleasantly contrasting with the light tomato sauce with the obvious paprika and other more surprising central Europe inland herbs like cumin, clove, celery.
A gorgeous way to stretch yesterday's would-be tuna tartare or rare steaks, I suppose.

Two points to watch out for, if very acceptable on balance:
Oysters are especially small - great for those plentiful plateaus, less fulfilling if taken alone.
Wìne by the glass: I welcome restaurants that do provide this option, and accept their want and need to charge more for it. Still, be sure to compare the price with a bottle's, as your second glass may easily pay for a full bottle.
