A lovely family run establishment. Friendly and happy to help with menu choices. The food is staple but varied, which is unusual for these islands. A definite return visit is needed. A very appreciated meal! Thank you.

A nice place, simple and clean. Very good and home-made courses. We tasted antipasto di mare and zuppa di pesce. Fantastic. Good local red wine ( may be a bit strong) honest prices. Recommended.
