Two of us went for a light lunch and whilst the setting was very pleasant and service attentive, it was one of the few occasions where we felt we were being "upsold". The waiter spoke a little English and was quite helpful but did seem quite insistent that we order additional dishes. Hubby had grilled mixed seafood and i ordered... More

Four course meal for €15, you can't go wrong. Outside tables with view of the sea, in the heart of the village. Calamari starter, spaghetti first plate, fish second plate and tea or coffee, really a great deal

My wife and I spent a week on the Italian riviera and by chance just dropped in to La Piazzetta. We travel a lot and this evening just ranked itself to be one of the most fantastic food experiences. They had fresh lobster which you went out in the kitchen too choose yourself, and it was served with fresh pasta,... More

Overall good restaurant. Not everything is excellent. The raw-fish starter was fresh and well presented whereas the "risotto di pesce" tasted too much like butter. Good wines' choice -had a "Ribolla Gialla"-, at fair prices. Service is fast and courteous.

We chose this restaurant because of its location and because it was busy. It began to spit with rain and the waitress moved a big umbrella over us. We felt immediately at home. We were immediately aware that this was a good decision. We were presented with a free plate of tiny fried fish before our meal and then settled... More

We were always going to that place and everything was ok ( not extraordinary but good) because of the nice location and the good variety of fresh fish. Unfortunately yesterday everybody was sick after dinner.... and the dishes didn't look fresh. As a matter of fact, when we first get to the restaurant the platter of fish ( that looked... More

We wanted a light supper here our last night. 6 of us ordered individual pizzas. Although the ingredients were fresh, the crust was pretty blah. The overall taste lacked the flavors that we expect in Italy. Service was pleasant, but we had to track down a waiter for additional drinks. While ordering dessert, we talked about a local restaurant that... More

Always most enjoyable, and consistant. Not been back for a year until last week, still high standards. really lovely interior is traditional / a little funky. Nice walk in through the entrance past wooden cabinets. Quite smart, locals dress up here. We were working on yachts nearby, so less dressed up but were made to feel welcome! Staff are superb,...
