Wonderful lunch time venue. Traditional Sicilian. Great seafood and excellent service. Good wine list. Boatyard vista it's only shortcoming. Peppered mussels worth the visit!

Amazing choice of various freshest local seafood options, including oysters, etc. Great service - the staff is eager to explain the menu, and to offer different cooking styles. Very nice view, as the restaurant is located in a small bay
