Calm atmosphere, tourist crowds for some reason bypass this place. Spectacular crudite (5 changes) and delicious fish soup (remins cacciucco, buzarra... you name it). Great selection of fine 5-Terre white wines. Unobtrusive but reliable service. Not cheap. Highly recommended.

We had seafood spaghetti, mixed salad, and grilled calamari. It was very good. The seafood was fresh and the seasoning was perfect. We had the house red wine which paired well with our meal. Service was excellent. Highly recommend.

Set in a quiet street Via Venti offers inside and outside tables. Our waiter was very attentive and informative explaining each dish we ordered. Fresh and delicious seafood pasta dishes. Complimented by local wine. Reasonable price for exquisite food.
