This restaurant is fantastic, great location just off the main square and a good atmosphere in the evening. Outside seating is a must but you'll need to book this in advance! The same morning will be fine. The seafood soup was the highlight, a big...More

Great, great, food in the Italian tradition, from the heart. Huge bowl of mussels, pasta and a sauce to die for. We spent 30 days in this town, ate here probably 10 times. Very consistent quality and service. In answer to the folks who complained...More
