Despite the name, this restaurant does not serve fish or sea food. There is no menu and no choice. Which could be good, apart from the fact that the food served consists of a series of dishes (no menu or choice) that are all the same: a piece of uncooked pasta sheets with some sauces, and a bit of prosciutto...

Food was excellent. We tried the local dishes 'testaroli al pesto' (flat bread typical of the region with pesto from the region) and then 'panigacci con affettati e formaggi (flat bread with meats and cheeses). It's winter and we ate late in the afternoon so we were the only two in the restaurant and had the best of service from... More

Just a good, well-run place for lunch or dinner. A great place to relax after walking the town or hanging out on the beach. Casual, place. Good food choices and flavorful dishes.

This place is located in a great area, close to the best attractions. The style is rustic and in theme with the food. The service from a young and enthusiastic crew is very good. Decent selection of local wines. The best was my spaghetti ai frutti di mare, with good seafood chunks, parsley and little else. Perfect to highlight the... More

Take the fixed menu and you get the possibility to taste different traditional food like testaroli with pesto or cheese&oil sauce and panigacci with Ham and cheese. Definitely not recommended if you are on diet!
