As the name say it the restaurant is located between two pine tree .Over looking the bay it is a little jewelry .The presentation is fabulous and the decor do make you mind wonder.The service is abundant and the sea food platter was delightful.

Good location, but the meal and service was very disappointing. the staff didn't seem to care at all. Tired boring starters, saved only by the fresh scampi. The pasta was far too al dente, and not that good generally.

What more could you ask for. Siting at a table meters from the bay water on a perfect 21c sunny day. Parked near the front door for free and now a glass of Prosecco in my hand. Pure bliss. We ordered the fried fish from the trawler and two expensive pasta dishes. My wife's was spaghetti with bottarga and mine... More

We had lunch in this restaurant located right on the beach. Sea food Appetizers were adequate but when it came to having pasta it was a great disappointment. I cannot condone serving precooked pasta in Italy. The establishment is attractive and location is good but they have to do a much better job with the pasta dishes.

Worst meal in Italy! Arrived at 7:15, told by surly man they open at 8. OK, can we wait? His jaw dropped like I asked him for a kidney. "No" was the answer. Can we wait and have some drinks? Since I saw two tables of people sitting and having drinks. "No" was the answer. Then, as if to do... More

We thought this was a casual beach bar from a distance but it serves smart food at smart prices. You don't come here for a quick panini or fries for lunch. It's proper restaurant fare with a fish and seafood menu. Luckily they did pasta pomodoro for the kids but that was the only dish they would have eaten. We... More

Absolutely stunning sunset, super cool staff (say hi to the girl with ✅ tattoo). Seafood freshly fished, and served right on the beach. Mmmm!

This place from the road looks like a cement and wood shack but it sits on the beach and is clean, offers a good selection of fish dishes being the specialty.

Ok, I agree with a lot of the complaints in previous reviews. It seems that the staff have taken some of these reviews on board and are making an effort to be friendly to everyone and make your meal memorable. Our spaghetti Vongole was too salty and the shells were treated a little too harshly by the chef therefore half... More
