Food is great! Servings are big! Fish soup is delicious with a whole crab in it! We enjoyed the meal so much that we forgot the time and missed our train back to La Spieza!

We arrived early. Which was good as the small restaurant filled up quickly. Nice atmosphere though. We had pasta in different styles. It was Ok. Not bad, but not wow. The pesto was too heavy. Perhaps just not to our taste. Great wine selection.
