Friendly atmosphere, great outside below trees, good view and excellent food quality. One of the best Millefoglie ever! Staff is ok and careful, selected choice of good dishes. Definitely a relaxing and charming place. More than reasonable bill. WiIl go back for sure.

One of the best places we ate! Super friendly service , excellent wines, you can even get some red wines recommended with the exclusive (in all meanings) seafood menu. The food? Divine! Try pasta con spada e melanzani, or frutti di mare, everything else was at least as good!

The restaurant is a little outside of the city centre, with an incredible view of the Adriatic. It was busy the night we were there, but the waiter squeezed us in without a reservation... More
