The restaurant looked like a nice place to eat and the staff are great. I would go back if I stayed at the hotel across the street again but probably wouldn't seek this place out if I wasn't staying nearby.

We had some great pasta dishes here.. the cheese and fruit platter was great for sharing. The pasta dishes were very fresh. The wine selection was alright with some reasonable priced Italian wines.

This is a very fine restaurant just a little away from the harbor and main street. It has a very fine garden, where you can enjoy the excellent food when the weather allows.

It's a good Italian menu, plenty of choices, and the food prices are reasonably priced, however the wine we had is $10 in the store and they charged $60, So sham on us for not knowing, but that's a huge margin in my opinionMore

Dear George~ Thank you for your review as we're pleased you enjoyed your dinner and service. As you don't mention which wine you had, we assume it's our Montepuliciano d'Abruzzo Classic Masciarelli. This is a specially ordered wine that you won't find in any liquor...More
