Lovely setting in a small square overlooking boats etc However the meal I had was dry and unappetizing and the waiting staff unfriendly and unhelpful

Don't go to this place! My pizza came 35 minutes later then my girlfriends dinner. When we complained about this, the owner (who is retarted) became very aggresive and hit me in the face in front of the terrace. After that when my girlfriend says...More

This is my worst restaurant related experience in Italy, if not in any country. We were impressed by the location by the sea and wanted to try it out. That is our worst decision ever. The first waitress did not talk to us, just showed...More
