Took a punt and booked this restaurant. The best bruschetta I have had in Italy and the sea bass we shared was beautiful, along with such a gorgeous sunset. Visit here if you can. Unique location and great food.

This restaurant is a pleasant walk along the ocean away from downtown Forio. I'd advise a reservation so you can sit on the terrace along the water. We had grilled swordfish and a mixed fried seafood plate, both of which were excellent. And wonderful fresh...More
