Wow, a very special little wine bar cum restaurant. This is the sort of place you hope for when you come on holiday to an exotic location. It's the layout, it's the décor, it's the art, it's the people. The little main bar is a higgledy piggledy jumble of art (lots of it), chairs, decorations and a few tables, an arm chair. It's as if you're in an art film, and in full colour. They make exquisite cocktails (try café fredo (iced coffee), served in champagne glasses having been made, mixed and iced right there before your eyes; and charge at just 2€ each). They have a small menu of high cuisine and beautifully prepared and displayed it is too. To the side of the bar is a restaurant, more normal, less attic, and they serve a brilliant, high cuisine meal. The staff are laid back and cool.
Fabulous. You can play at being one of the beautiful people.

(“Abitue” is an Italian adaptation of the French word for Regular; an English translation therefore might be “The Regular Spot”, or better “My Local”.)

We found this by accident and a local translated the menu of the night for us. We had a fixed price 5 course meal, seafood based including wine. This little Bistro has a lovely atmosphere, fantastic food and friendly staff. it's very reasonably priced too.

We had a great evening in this restaurant. The menu was translated in English for us at the table by the very friendly waitress. We got a local white wine from one of their cellars, an absolutely great match with their also fabulous fish dishes! Try the polpo (octopus) and the triglia (red mullet)! Portions here are smaller (similar to French restaurants) than in other Italian restaurants, so here you can order a primi, secondi and still have room left for desert.
