The food is great. Particularly the risotto and the fish carpacio. Do not forget to ask for desserts!!!

We were so glad to see the owners of former Los Pelicano is back in the restaraunt business! The food is fabulous and these guys are pro's. Luca is probably the best italian chef on this island no offense to the guys at Casa Nastra. As for the meals we had - I got to see my grouper being cut up before I feasted on it as a Mediterranean dish and the other three had lobster razzoto - they all agreed it was "killer". We will go again before we leave for sure !

The open space and they way the tables are assembled makes it a really nice place to sit and enjoy the evening breeze, plus ambience is very nice. One night we had drinks but decided to go back the next nite for dinner. Food is good, pasta is hand made and menu is very complete. They have a good wine list. Unfortunately we didnt make it to dessert but main dishes were pretty good.
They close early (around 10 pm) and that time didnt take any credit card.

A beautiful place to dine excellent food, fresh made pasta and the catch of the day. The perfect balance between service, ambiance and menu.

We accidentally stumbled across this place one evening while walking around the town square area. We soon realized it was a new restaurant started by Chef Luca and his wife who remembered us from 2011 at their former restaurant, Pelicano's. We had dinner the next evening. Tried the lobster butter ravioli and the shrimp risotto. Both dishes were excellent as was the service. More expensive than other local restaurants, but nice atmosphere and loved the bar/open kitchen concept.

We agree with the other excellent reviews. It is a must do.
