We were treated to a wonderful evening of amazing fresh fish, pasta and great wine. A fantastic way to spend an evening with friends. The staff were superb too!

We were there for lunch on a Sunday. We shared the antipasto mare and then we had the risotto alla pescatora. Everything was wonderful. Service attentive. Surrounded by Italian families. Very authentic. Highly recommended!
