The sea food salad was very good as were the clams. The gnocchi with shrimps however not. In our view it is a bit overrated.

We were here in a large party, and managed to get a good sample of the food offered. Like many other restaurants in the beach area, it is set close to the seaside with a view (it is the standard setup in the area, to the point that I kept wondering if I have been here in the past, conclusions was "no, they all look alike").
The food presented is also the standard menu of these restaurants: it is a plain and dull menu mainly focussed on simple and "easy to prepare" fish dishes, which can rarely go wrong, so do not expect anything fancy or elaborated. There is no real choice for vegetarians (only grilled veggies and French fries, the latter I would NOT recommend, they are quite below standard), so leave vegetarians home, or have them starving
Wines are on the expensive side. The service is very friendly, but unobtrusive.
Typically starters and first (pasta based) courses are good value for money: decently tasty and well done (but again, beware that the choice is limited to simple dishes, similar standards can be found on many other similar restaurants in the area, and on par with good home cooking), portions are generous.
Main dishes are again reasonably well done, but portions tend to be a touch less generous, and at least for the "grigliata mista" the dish was overall a touch below what I would rank as average.
Desserts are few, plain and dull, I would say disappointing (I can personally prepare far more interesting desserts!).
Overall, the feeling is of an establishment which offers food like I would normally make at home, decently well prepared; but, well, when I go out I like to get food which somehow surprises me, which is positively not the case here. But again, I would expect no surprise either: as mentioned, the dishes proposed are staple fish food dishes, they can hardly go wrong.
In a party where typically we had a couple of dishes each (either a starter and a first course, or a starter and a main course), some cakes (only a couple really) and some (roughly a full glass/each) home wine, the bill came to approx 28 euro/person, which is kind of average, a touch on the expensive side.
Beware when paying: our bill was wrong (they charged us two additional liters of wine which we did not have), but also a couple in front of us had a similar albeit opposite problem (they were charged less).

Together with a friend we went for a real honest sea dish..... But what we didn't expected, was the ambiance of this place, the diner by moonlight and the really amazing fantastic service of Laura!

I will recommend this place for the quality of the delicious food, the ambiance and off course the service!

I will come back soon!
