A beautiful setting, a terrible meal. Chef chose to substitute ingredients so menu description was meaningless. I ordered a pasta dish with tuna roe. He substituted monkfish, which I detest and which did nothing good for the dish. Perhaps we were identified as ignorant Americans, as we were conspicuously the only guests unacquainted with the oleaginous maitre d'. I would... More

I have visited several times this restaurant for business and private reasons, but always with the same pleasure. The building itself is beautifull and the view on the bay of Vasto is wonderful. If you're lucky enough to eat outside, you'll never forget it. The meals are typical and based on fishes (but meat specialities are available too). The service... More

We had such a fabulous lunch here that we returned for dinner. The food is fabulous. My wife loved the ravioli with truffle cream sauce. I enjoyed the homemade squid-ink pasta with shellfish. It was wonderful to dine on the deck high above the Adriatic. A must visit if you are in Vasto!

What a view, what a restaurant, you can sit inside or outside, you can look from inside to the sea, the food was excellent, fresh fish, wonderful service, just a delight. we had lunch inside and coffee outside on the terrace. a very memorable time with our friends Cheryle and James.....A top of the line restaurant.

I have been eating here for over 15 years. Same owner over all that time. Incredible views of the bay, nice dining room, but in the summer on the terrace is fantastic. Jasmine scented air. Fantastic fish place, dont expect to find any meat. Ask what is good. Out of season in particular they can have something special. Last time... More

The terrace is extremely elegant and the view is fantastic. the food is superb, very fresh and tasty. we accepted the recommendation of the friendly and very professional waiter and he was right! the only negative aspect was the initial waiting to get a table so I would suggest to book for an early dinner.

Highlight of our trip in terms of view, friendly highly efficient service and amazing sea food. The seafood starter , comprising many dishes , was perfect and could have just eaten that and desert (just because it was that nice ). Wine was again brilliant and so cheap. Book and request a seat on terrace edge to woo you beloved... More

While vacationing in Italy along the Adriatic Sea a few months ago, my wife and I stopped for a few days in the city of Vasto. Actually we stayed at the Hotel Excelsior in Vasto Marina on the beach. Awesome part of Italy worth visiting. I asked the concierge Giamluca for a recommendation for the best restaurant in the area... More
