The ambiance is pleasant enough, with wooden tables placed in an open wooden structure located on a side street of the lungomare (in case you are wondering, the restaurant name means "narrow street" in anglo-neapolitan…). Most of the raw ingredients used in the preparation of food tasted fresh and of good quality (with the disappointing exception of the frozen calamari in the fried fish mix).
But the good stops here.
The mixed fish appetizer, although nice-looking, was composed of items that did not go together well, with strong contrasting flavors covering weaker flavors; and the same was true for the pasta; and I already mentioned the fried fish mix with frozen ingredients. In short, it appears that the chef is not using the materials in a correct and balanced way, and the end results are rather dull dishes with nothing to remember.
When asking about desserts, we found out that only a small selection of pies was available, and surprisingly no ice-cream of any kind. House-made liquors at the end of the meal are traditional in this region - but they only had commercial brands.
The wine list was rather limited too, with a majority of labels from a single local producer.
Talking about service, I must say that individual waiters seemed quite well-trained, courteous, and knowledgeable - I would say definitely above average in the region - but unfortunately an overall coordination seemed to be lacking, and we often found ourselves in need to attract their attention, and dishes mostly arrived at the table out-of-sync. The bill is not particularly cheap.
Overall, my impression was that they are earnestly trying to provide a "good restaurant", but they still have a lot of things to improve before they can rise above average.
