This little gem is an amazing eatery in the heart of forio. It's a perfect place to enjoy a proper Italian food. Perfect for family and couples. Facing the beach and had a lovely atmosphere. Staffs were very friendly. Will come back again.

The sand is cleaned twice a day. You can eat on the beach or inside. WC. Shower. Food is perfect and atmosphere is very warm. No shic, if you need it. Bruschetta with tomatoes is unbelievable tasty. Coffee, croissants are perfect. Calamari and shrimps on the grill. Spaghetti and penne. Salads. All is recommended!

Thank VikTorry
