And I have been going here for years and they have a consistent fine quality of food, affordable good wine. The melanzane with fish as first course is very good.
Fish out of the oven id lovely.
try the sorbetto di mela verde con calvados as dessert.
It does take a little while to be appreciated.
Tip, dress normally, t-shirt and bermuda will set you apart.
If you can tel lRoberto and Giacoma apart, let me know.

unfortunately the service was really not the best... they have higher prices and play the chic-resto-thing, but the service cannot hold up to that. I am also not sure, if we were treated in a different way because we were tourists (which spoke only italian, though)... because in the time we had 2 courses the table next to us had 4... we actually never made it to a dessert because after two courses in 2 hours it got kinda too late. I also had to wait very long for the bill.
the food was nice, but quiet small portions in relation to the price...
the wines though represent good value for money...

Found this place on tripadvisor and had dinner twice. Also went on the fishing trip with them at 5 AM which was a real experience. We can only say this family knows how to catch and serve an excellent meal! Certainly will go back here next time.

The restaurant has a long standing familly tradition and run by two bothers Roberto and Giacomo and from time to time helped by their third brother. They are actually fishing every single morning and what you eat is fresh from the day. There is only fish and seafood here, so if you re expecting spaghetti al ragu that might not be your place :-)
Antipasti are really worth as you really eat depending on the season very original combinations of raw fish and slighly cooked seafood. Pasta is of course part of it: I usually take alle vongole with bottarga... simple but a must . Then comes the fish that you will choose yourself and the way it's being cooked ... they will advise you the best way .
last but not least , there are plenty of nice dessert , but the combinations of sorbets are just great
Large choice of wines , all what you need is there . And of course impeccable service !!
bon appetit
