Every year I have been visiting this Lido and inevitably eating at its restaurant. Great fish dishes and above all my favorite: a classical staple of the Adriatic beaches..spaghetti alle vongole.

This place is great place to go for high quality! Fish restaurant with extremely fresh fish prepared with elegance and delicacy! Prices compared to quality and portions are fair, a bit on the higher end but worth it!
