If you love seafood and fish dishes, this place is for you! Location is nothing special, but you will forget it immediately when you start eating... All is fresh and very well prepared, and the price is absolutely honest. Thus... don't miss it!

Visited today, didn't understand why it has such big rating on tripadvisor. To every client waitress serving the bread, and even if you ask to take it away, anyway they will put it in the bill (2 eur per every client).

Out from the 1950's: retro, unpretentious interior, seriously understating the quality of the cooking. Run by a bunch of extremely serious and competent kids, the service is easy and kind. Encyclopedic knowledge of med fish, classic Italian cooking applied with fantasy and skill to many varieties of very fresh fish I had never heard of.

Firstly, the waitress suggested us to order same things to facilitate the kitchen. Sorry but, I'd like to order what I like, not what is better for you. To be precise, we had a reservation for 9pm, not midnight. Appetizers we choose were quite good. Then we had pasta: mine, carbonara with cozze, was terrible and the worse thing was... More

Excellent local cuisine with wide selection of vines. Fresh fish similar to sashimi but locally made.

I had two separate meals here, each wonderful. The staff was patient, helpful, and very friendly. They were rather harried - as the restaurant seems to always be busy - and service could be a bit faster. This didn't detract from the meal, however. The restaurant serves primarily fish, and we ate lots of it. Several dishes had bottarga -... More

The restaurant decor is nothing fancy a bit cold, the view at sunset but makes up what is missing. There is almost the sense they do not want to take the light from the food. The ingredients are fresh and everything has explanation to where it is sourced. The waiter is highly knowledgable about food and wine matching, and there... More

Stayed at the hotel in the same building and ate here one night. We made reservations ahead of time, which seemed to be necessary as the place was full. The table was nicely set, the menu extensive, the service was friendly (although the waiters were busy), and the food was excellent. A mostly seafood-dominated menu, but everything seemed fresh and... More

The service was exceptionally slow, at least on the evening my girlfriend and I dined at this restaurant. We were a long time waiting at the table before even the menus were brought to us. We both had seafood (which was claimed to be caught from the local sea), and it was unremarkable. I did like, however, the vegetables that... More
