Delicious seafood dishes- purple prawns which are from the area, were especially good. Complimentary freshly fried anchovies were great as well. Only slight negative is that they are a bit pricey, high coperto charge also.

Attended a wedding rehearsal dinner in the courtyard outside this restaurant. Beautiful, classically Italian setting. We had a special menu but the if the chef’s normal menu is anything like it, it will be sure to please. Situated right across the street from the harbor.
