The restaurant is very small inside, only about 5 tables, so booking a table is strongly recommended. There are several more tables outside.

The menu was written on a board in Italian, happily the staff were happy to translate for us, though it was not as straight forward as you might hope.

The menu was a little unusual, in that the 'classic' Italian options (carbonara, bolognese, etc..) were not present, so be prepared to try something different! The food we had was excellent. The house white wine was really delicious.

Note for parents, the highchair provided didn't have any straps, so it was a bit of a challenge keeping our son in place. The 2nd night we came we made sure to get him to sleep before arriving at the restaurant!

Small, charming and very cozy restaurant.
A tribute to the pure and simple Italian cuisine.
Local seasonal produce, local wines, heavenly food.
Daily specials written on a large chalk board, no set menu.
Mainly seafood, a hidden gem!

Very good Italian food at affordable prices. My pasta with seafood was amazing and all guests were very pleased with their food. The waitress were very helpful and service minded.
The only negative to say, as we dined in the garden, was the location close to a road, although only local traffic.

We've been in Italy for a week, and this is THE BEST Italian food we have had. There is a lot of seafood on the menu. We had Rombo crusted with potatoes (Rombo is Turbot - a kind of flounder.) It melted in our mouths. We also had a pasta dish with asparagus, garlic, and truffle. It was soooo good. We had good wine and mixed salad as well.

If you like seafood, treat yourself and go to this restaurant.

This restaurant offers well prepared local food in a cozy elegant ambiente. It deserves a visit, has a well balanced menu, not expensive, fast and friendly service. the food is slightly different than in other local restaurants around, slightly more modern and with a different flavor.
