Location and contact

For almost 50 years now, the Al Bagatto Restaurant has been providing this wonderful city a place to try the best fresh fish around. This has sometimes meant offering an alternative all-meat menu or even closing the restaurant when the quality fish that you know us for, and which distinguishes us, was not available.

This is mainly a seafood restaurant. We were there with a large group people whom we were hiking with. They managed the large group without any trouble. We were served a sardine pasta to start which was surprisingly delicious. This was followed by sea bass...More
