Only had lunch here as it was always fully booked in the evenings. Lunch was excellent but reserve for the evenings. Probably more formal than the other two restaurants.

We went there on spec on Saturday and they were able to accommodate us. The waitress was really good, the surroundings great and food very well prepared. It all turned to a very disappointing episode when we asked for the bill (3 times and the poor waitress was getting exasperated). It seemed that only one person dealt with billing and... More

Went on a recommendation of a friend from Bologna. In top two or three seafood meals I have eaten in Italy, which means top five in my life. Truly outstanding in terms of quality and freshness of produce and precision in the cooking. The local mussels and oven-roasted whole sea bass & potatoes will live long in the memory! Charming...

We visited this restaurant two different nights in September. The first time it was still lovely weather, we ate out on the terrace and it was very busy, a lively, relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Love the fact that everything, inside and out is painted light blue, fits in so well with the surroundings. The fish was good, fresh and basic,... More

Great hospitality, fresh fish straight from the neighbouring fishermen, beautiful view of the bay. In summer it must be great to have a lunch or a dinner here, the combination of good food and a splendid sea side atmosphere. We cannot forget to mention the Italian style of taking care of customers.

We made a special journey to this restaurant after seeing it on Alex Polizzi 's Secret Italy and I'm glad we made the trip. All the fish and Seafood are caught locally, some even by the family that own the restaurant. The mussel and Swordfish appetisers were delicious and you could tell it was fresh. The pasta course was equally... More

Absolutely worth the drive. Fresh fish, beautiful informal location, full of locals. Crowded area in the summer. Insist you on a parking space and say you're just going to eat and not to lie on the beach.
