Been here before but they’ve had a name change even though they are the same people. We got sat down promptly but then had to ask for menus after being given place mats and cutlery and drinks. Then we waited and waited, pity I didn’t check the time but I reckon we were nearing half an hour waiting to order and it wasn’t busy.
Meat platter for starter not too impressive, was told there were mozzarella balls but they were slices of mozzarella, salami was spicy no normal salami etc. my husband enjoyed his baccalà with ceci, at which point we had to ask for bread, we also wanted condiments but at this point couldn’t be bothered to ask as they should bring them anyway so no salt or pepper.
Mains, the pizza was ok but the fried calamari and prawns not so good, not sure what calamari they use but I had to remove all the black interior to eat them, plenty of calamari but only 3 little prawns, I did end up leaving most of it but no enquirer as to wether everything was ok because if they had asked I probably wouldn’t be writing about it now.
Then came the bill time, we asked for it, the waitress finished what she was doing, came and out it on the table without a thank you, not courteous! We do also believe we were charged incorrectly possibly for a drink served in error but as the bill isn’t itemized there’s no way to check this. Won’t be going again.

Sincerely super! High quality local dishes, elegance and young fresh staff give to the emergent restaurant an original touch of friendly foolish... very very smart address in a sort of Tuscan Montparnasse street, reach of every kind of other proposals!

Loved this little gem of a restaurant tucked away in an alley just off the Main Street. Warm and friendly waiters, efficient service, great value for money and fresh seafood. We ordered the tuna tartar that is served in patties, mixed to olives and pistachios, just excellent. We then had shrimps that were delicious, and some great-tasting sardines. All in all it was a great experience, I will definitely be going again and will recommend this restaurant to anyone that wants to enjoy fresh seafood in a warm and friendly ambiance at an affordable price.

We have eaten here a few times. The waitress was very pleasant but we waited for everything! Menus and drinks. You used to choose your own food by filling in boxes on a tapas type menu but this time it was Menu del Giorno with very little choice so wasn't too impressed especially as my husbands mussels were also over cooked. Here's hoping it gets its standards back as we used to enjoy dining here.
