THE FISH IS Excellent, the pasta is excellent and the location is beautiful. We went there twice in 3 days and had exactly the same dishes. A must do.

Great food, location. Worth a detour. Has the dreamy feel of an unspoiled beach in the middle of nowhere. Can't wait to go back

The staff was hospitable and accommodating to us without being able to speak English. The seafood was excellent and you must try the cheesecake. I didn't know graham cracker crust was available in Italy. The restaurant is on the beach and at night it feels as if you were on a boat in the sea.

Great location, simple and tasty food! Tuna Teriyaki is superb and must be tried! Good wine list. We've been there twice and will surely go back when around. Marco
