This is much more than a pizza place, good Italian food, and good salads. It is very popular, so go early (before 5PM) or late (after 8pm). Good pour on their wines, and good bar menu.

It's the best for delicious food, good people, ambiance of an eatery by the beach, reasonable, gorgeous sunsets, and tasty vino.
