Very nice ambiance with good service and food. I recommend as main course the "linguine all'astice", simply terrific! Little bit pricy but overall 4/5 is a fair valuation of the place. Well done!

This restaurant is outside the town of Porto Santo stefano, in the hills. A nice terrace offers stunning views. The food is excellent, but service is a bit slow (at least when we were there). Higher price class...
