The place was packed when we got there but they made room for the 6 of us. The seafood was excellent. Most had shrimp, swordfish, and cuddle fish. There was one order of steak with cilantro and Parmesan cheese which was also very good. Service was good, atmosphere was noisy but you could carry on a conversation. The prices were... More

Near the port and in front of the sea, it is a little restaurant near the pedestrian area. The personnel is kindly. Il capitano surprised me with over ten different appetizers: vegetables, meat and fish. After this an excellent and abundant first plate: tagliatelle con pescatrice. Finally, sorbet and liquor.

We were recommended this place by a local, always the best way to find a good restaurant. As it is facing the port, fish is the speciality, and we enjoyed excellent fish dishes with friendly prompt service. Fellow diners were curious about us and we enjoyed chatting. A complimentary lemon sorbet came at the end of our meal, and handshakes... More

Located right on the water, with a beautiful view of the fishing village on the other side of the channel, Il Capitano is an excellent fish and pizza restaurant. The appetizers were extremely tasty we tasted a traditional dish of mussels, rice and potatoes as well as shrimp, meatballs and eggplant parmesan. In fact, I would have been happy with... More
