Place was packed on a Wednesday night at 9pm. This is the place to go if you like your seafood. We had oysters and swordfish which were delicious. Staff very busy so be prepared to wait to be served, but food is delivered quickly. Would recommend

Beautiful seafood restaurant by the sea in Torre Canne. We've eaten here a couple of times and always had a fantastic experience. The food is delightful, the staff are very friendly and the views are breathtaking.

We stopped by chance and, even though we weren’t allowed to sit outside on the terrace in the beautiful September sun we decided to stop and have lunch. The non- smiling and distinctly grumpy waitress didn’t put us off and when the food arrived that hit the spot. Plates cleared in a jiffy, no mention of Dolce so we asked for the bill. Three times! Then we struggled to find someone to take the money. I know the season is now at the end and they probably don’t want to be there, but if you do open and want customers you need to treat them professionally and courteously! When we left it was full and rightly so the seafood was excellent!

Had high hopes for this place as recommended by our Italian friend. Being the first people at the restaurant arriving about 5 mins before our reservation we were greeted by surly staff that hardly smiled as we were directed to our table.

We were a little slow deciding what to get (we took about 20mns), we choose and ordered and then watched other people arrive order and get their food. Our food arrived 45 mins after we ordered, a long while after other guests had ordered and got their food - with no apologies. Food was average- I’ve had better calamari from the freezer section of our supermarket! The mixed salad we had ordered to go with the food was dry and un-appetising. We only had one course and managed to finally leave the restaurant 2 hours later!

On a positive note, the location on the sea front is lovely but would choose a different restaurant and not return to this one.

The food and service were excellent and the setting is lovely. It was also very good value.

The best part of the evening for me though was the people watching, a large family gathering on the table next to us was a joy to see.
