A great setting hidden down an alley but very near the seafront. Seemed traditional from the menu and decor. Our waiter spoke all our languages, lucky for us as Italian isn’t one of them. A cover charge of €3 each for bread and water seemed steep but the bread basket was the best and most varied we’d ever seen and water was sparkling if you wanted.
Starting with a couple of glasses of fizz, we shared two lovely, tasty starters of warm bruschetta – Mediterranean with cheese, anchovies, tomato and Tonnarella with tuna, cheese and anchovies (we like cheese and anchovies!). This was followed by two fantastic pasta mains: Pignurin with squid, octopus, shrimp, prawns, mussels, clams and cherry tomatoes was awesome and Tonnarotta with tuna, fresh tomato, olives, and capers was was equally tasty. For each dish and each type of fish the flavours shone through.
A bottle of local Mataossu recommended by the waiter was a perfect match. Dessert was one of the most innovative we’ve had - shared Fruttini which was fruit filled ice cream. Apple and walnut were very memorable.
The only strange thing was that the advertised music, part of the reason for coming here, was a guy talking for ages and not playing much and when he did it was Edith Piaf, Gipsy Kings and Guantanamera, none of which were Italian. Nevertheless it was a memorable evening in a great restaurant.
