Our b&b recommend this place if we wanted seafood. Maybe she oversold it so my expectations were a bit high. The restaurant is on a corner with no view so do not expect ocean views with your seafood. Although the food is all the view I need if it is good. We were given the menus and then when we... More

This family run trattoria offers excellent value for money seafood meals. The antipasto della casa is a must. But only go there if you are into seafood as that's all they serve. Be sure to book as it is highly popular.

Visited this restaurant without booking and they found us a table even though they were very busy, the food was good but the service was very slow although couldn't complain as they had fitted us in on a busy evening, it was very pleasant

This is a real family run restaurant with efficient waitresses and a chef who keeps an eye on his customers. There is little choice just fresh fish dishes and good local wines. We had antipasti that kept on coming - prawns, octopus salad, mussels in cheese, more mussels, broad bean mash with fish, fresh anchovies, white bait, more I forget!... More

Cosy trattoria with amazing anti pasti.....don't order anything else until you've finished them and determine if you have room for more.

Polognana is full of restaurants serving seafood, unfortunately I'm not a great lover of it, but this place did very well. It was very busy, tables outside and in with very competent waitresses and a chef who kept sticking his head out of the kitchen to make sure everything was going well. There was a lovely seafood starter with some... More
