We stopped by on the recommendation of a local. The service was very good and the food was even better! I highly recommend the anchovies appetizer!

Nice location and the fruit of the sea appetizer was very good. The the risotto al mare came and looked great. But the dish was so salty that we could barely eat it - after that just wanted to leave. Four requests for the bill...More

Sorry. It was a first-time visit and while we thought it was quite good, we had no previous visit to compare it with.
