Went here for dinner, place looks very nice and the interior creates a great atmosphere. Service was very good and everything was of great quality! We orderd pasta salmona as a starter (came with egg yolk in a cup) and squid (grilled). Mains were mozarella-steak and grilled tuna. All the food was very tasty and prepared with great care. The...

Great food, just outside the hectic vity centre, small but nice terrace and very good food. Not the standard food but very exclusive food which is presented very nice. Not cheap but well worth the money. Absolutly recommend

I called the restaurant for a reservation and in 10 minutes I was there, they had free tables. I don't understand how was that possible because it was amazing. Everyone was polite, I had the best octopus salad from my life. I remember the place as one of the best restaurants I've ever been. Totally in love with it!

Excellent sea food! Linguine with mongole and fried sea food was exceptional. But if the bold guy is serving, keep calm and eat your food. If the blonde lady is serving, no problem at all. Liguria white wine, try one you don't regret.

I had a delightful meal at this restaurant. The insalata di pesce was amazing and even better was the pasta with clams and potatoes. The service was perfect and friendly. It was a great experience.

I was in this restaurant for lunch on 1st january 2015. Usually is not so easy to find a good restaurant open in the first day of the year. But this place seems to be open always. The restaurant is really a bit retro as its name. At our arrival a very kind waiter named Manuel gave me some appreciated... More
