Well-away from the touristy area, but an easy walk. Fresh quality seafood, cooked expertly and served promptly. Great atmosphere. House wine recommendedm. Tiramisu probably the best I ever tasted.

What a lovely experience this was! Charming family run restaurant with excellent seafood. On the night we went here, most of the restaurants were closed. We couldn't figure out why, perhaps because of the rain? But luckily this restaurant was open and based on the...More

Great evening with Favio and Marcello. Rarely does the owner or the chef take time to sit down and discuss the menu at each table. The house white wine is very good at 5€ for 0.5 l. The steak was well cooked and very tender....More
