I stumbled on this restaurant after my visit to the blue grotto. Simone was kind enough to serve me even though the restaurant was closed. My seafood pasta was very tasty, enough for me to consume all of my generous portion. I also loved the...More

The advice on two fish started was spot on as was the warm, crusty bread. Linguine vongole and linguine king prawns superb: Lemony, herby. Just enough room for fish, roast rosemary potatoes and fab mixed green salad. Had to wait but worth it.

The food is good but the service leaves much to be desired. Half the options offered on the menu were not available and they only tell you after you have ordered. Considering the restaurant doesn't have a formal menu, they could remove the options which...More

I am sure, because the cook will personally compose your meal according to what you like. They serve mainly fish. I don t think they have glutenfree pasta, so just eat your veggies, sauces and fish.
