This was close to our hotel and was a nice spot for lunch. Outdoor tables during the summer. Really good octopus salad. Friendly service. Reasonable prices.

The pizza is superb, simple. You can have red, white and have loads of things added after cooking. Drinks are cheap and there is a good rang of anti pasti. The veranda has a good view of the buzzing bridge.
