My best combination is enchanting location and lively unpretentious but very cared for cuisine. At the port, few meters away from rocks and water. Open space. Good light and natural ventilation. Staff are lively and very caring. They advise and explain how dishes are cooked!...More

I believe, for my wife and I, it was approximately 50-60 euros without any wine. One appetizer, two main courses, two desserts and water. We spent a week in Italy and this restaurant fed us our best food.
