My wife and I, both had fish, as our main course. My tuna was perfect, and my wife was delighted with the sea bream. The chef had removed virtually all the bones,from her fish, which made it much more enjoyable. Reasonable prices.

We had a big table of 8 people wishing to have a good seafood dinner. We were amazed by the fresh food and the service of Cristina. We would return any time here. Thank you so much.

We were not at all disappointed. Loved the platter that provided tastings of all 5 appetizers --each one was fantastic! Really enjoyed my fish dinner--best meal I had in Italy and my son and husband also enjoyed their dinners. Would highly recommend this restaurant.

During the last two weeks It seems I can't cook anymre, or maybe off-season tourism isn't suitable to my restaurant. Everybody does his own considerations.

We are not a pretentious crowd and usually it’s easy to please us - not this time. I don’t understand why it is rated so high in trip advisor. The service was fine but the kitchen is not even close to a usual Italian seafood...More

A great place overall. Didn't' find anything wrong with it. The waiters were always incredible nice and welcoming. I'll admit we had quite a few requests. However, they were always happy to help and left us with a magnificent impression. The food was good. Presentation...More
