The place is nicely decorated with ok service and a decent selection of wines. Unfortunately the food was not to our expectation. My girlfriend had troubles eating the fish soup and my misto di pesce did not have much taste except for the prawns.

Great setting, both indoors and outdoors, great food and great service. Menu mostly centered around fish, but good options for meat and vegetarian. Attentive service, happy to arrange modifications if possible to accommodate special requests.

Dear Louise, I am sorry to hear you felt unwelcome at our restaurant. Our staff is mainly Italian and may have not expressed themselves as well as they wanted to in a foreign language. Indeed we do not serve drinks without food and we should...More
