Despite being snubbed by the waiter the first time we tried to eat here, we came back and we re very glad we did. Great location if they will allow you to sit outside and the food really is amazing. The napoli pizza is just perfect but the home made pasta stole my heart. I could have happily eaten here every night -despite the grumpy old waiter!

We were seated at a table outside with a view of the sea right away. The waiter was so attentive with great suggestions from the menu. We decided on 2 delicious pizzas which were more than enough! This place was quiet and felt a little more upscale than some others next door. We would highly recommend this restaurant to couples and friends traveling together.

We've been here twice just for gelato and it was great and we had about three different flavors every time. The best is definitely the strawberry because it it tastes better than a real strawberry

We were two couples who had dinner on the last night before the restaurant closed for the season. It was an excellent meal! The service was attentive, efficient and very friendly, and the staff - we were served by multiple servers - was quite helpful. The wine list is extensive, offering a wide range of wines, including quite a few good local wines. The atmosphere was good; spacious tables on a veranda with the noise of the waves breaking in the background. All of our food was excellent. I had a gnocchi with sausage and broccoli rabe, followed by a sea bass with tomatoes and mussels. Both were well prepared and presented, and quite tasty. The rest of our party also had a mixed grill, caprese, and some repeats. Everyone loved their food. The portions are quite generous and, as I mentioned, the presentation well done. As it is right on the beach, the prices are a bit higher than elsewhere, but for us the experience was well worth it. Beautiful night, beautiful setting, great service and excellent food. A good night of dining!

We had sandwiches for lunch and a bottle of local wine. Both were wonderful. The service was spot on and the view of the beach and the boat traffic around the harbor were great too. Our only complaint was the flies that were all over the place and the restaurant doesn't offer any "bug spray" to combat the flies. The waiter just shrugged his shoulders and said there was nothing they could do about the flies. Our suggestion would be to place some fans in strategic locations to create a breeze on days like ours when there was no breeze and the flies were swarming and biting. Despite that, we had a very nice lunch and got some good exercise waving at the flies!
