We rewarded ourselves with lunch at Il Grottino after a long hike and it was perfect! The pasta was perfectly cooked, both dishes with rich, tasty sauces. We then shared a seafood stew, which was a very generous portion (great value) and in a hearty, vibrant broth. The service was good and the place itself had a very appealing interior.

I had lunch and dinner in this very central little restaurant.
The primo, walnut tagliolini, was so-and-so, the secondo, sea bass (grouper?) with tomato and olives, was very good. I also liked the local white, perfect for fish.

Great seafood. Loved the octopus salad and the mixed grill. Reasonable. Good service. In the Main Street and easy to find.

Whilst the restaurant doesn't have a view, the food is very good. I had the trofie with pesto and a tagliata, both of which were excellent. They also have a number of local wines by the half bottle.

The staff were very friendly and offered some suggestions about the area once I got talking to them.

I'd definitely recommend eating here.

The restaurant is cozy and has few tables only. There were 2 servers so service can be slow when the place is full. We had the grilled seafood platter and the swordfish special and it was awesome! They had local white wines, which were very cheap and tasty. And since we stayed in Hotel Argentina, we even had a discount from the restaurant! I would definitely come here again!
