Great atmosphere and service and even better great food! We decided to share two pasta dishes, one seafood and the other the local speciality pasta 'Norma'. Enjoyed both although we thought the fish looked wonderful as well. Finished off with a delicious tiramisu.

We came here because of a recommendation of a bar we had some drinks. When we arrived at the restaurant we saw the restaurant was filled with locals. We were seated by a nice waiter whom helped us very well. It is a perfect restaurant to get some local fish dishes and absolutely a recommendation. It might be a bit... More

Atmosphere - small but at the same time spacious and really cozy restaurant, simplicity and accessibility when communicating with staff, professional waiters! While seeing the fish is being cut on my plate, I received not only convenience, but also the aesthetic and visual pleasure! The way how the staff presents the menu is amazing, it is better not to go... More

We asked a guy who owns a bar and he suggested this restaurant, not far from teatro Bellini. Great range of seafood . Clearly very popular With the local people and not yet found by many tourists. I would recommend it.

We were staying very close and found it through the internet. You can sit outside, the views are not terrific, but it is a pleasant place.
