A small Italian restaurant sitting next to the harbor. All the foods are good but their pizza is exceptional! Love their seafood pizza.

This is my favorite pizzeria in LaCiotat and the pizza is made the proper way - in a woodfire oven! They also have other dishes and good salads. Definitely a place that should not be missed.

You can often trust a full restaurant on a non-holiday, after 8 pm. This one was full because it is a favorite, offering pizza, pastas, seafood, and fast efficient service. Nothing romantic or special, just good food at reasonable value.
