Best meal in Pizzo by far. Had a wonderful octopus salad followed by linguine frutti di mare and some grilled swordfish. Wonderful service. Make sure you make a reservation - even if your hotel calls right before.

Family run in a decorated room with objects, paintings and murals representing traditional hunting swordfish and tuna. Intimate, pleasant and friendly, where the cuisine is very local with fresh seasonal fish and regional wines.
