Local restaurant with friendly owners ; divine minestrone, swordfish, homemade pasta and local fresh fish dishes. So glad we wandered into this restaurant!

At last we've found a restaurant with good food. Only had lunch here but all the pasta dishes were excellent and from what I could see of the other dinners this is a better than average choice for this very busy street. Recommend.

Good choice of dishes for lunch and dinner though we found that both our dishes were too salty. Service was quick and friendly. Overall, not an outstanding dining experience, but quite adequate and they do serve local cuisine.
