There's a reason for the queue outside this small kiosk by the train station. We had calamari and chips for €10 each, freshly and beautifully cooked. There's a small selection of other fried seafood options and soft/alcoholic drinks.

They cooked the food perfectly, and during my time the queue was not that long. I also surprised when the booth was just outside the treni stazione. No rubbery calamary, no undercooked fishes, Two thumbs up!

What can be better than fried fresh seafood in a cone?! Served with a slice of lemon...so delicious! I had the seafood all in. Had calamari, squid, shrimp and anchovies in it. Would definitely recommend to any seafood lover!
