We had read that this was a busy local restaurant and worth a visit. It is a little walk from the main seafront restaurant area. The first night we visited there was no table available and we were advised to come back in 20 minutes. We did that but they had no record of our previous visit so we had to leave and find somewhere else, which was frustrating. We did decide to make a reservation for the following evening. We both had pasta and then shared the calamari for our second course. The pasta was fresh and fairly tasty. My husband had polpette with his which he enjoyed. Other than that it was all fairly average. We found the service very unfriendly - our waitress didn't really speak to us and never once smiled. The owner however, was friendlier and insisted on us having a complimentary lemon sorbet to conclude our meal, which was a tasty touch. It summary it was ok, but didn't live up to our prior expectations.

Very popular restaurant, arrive early or be prepared to queue. The vegetable antipasti was delicious. I had seafood orecchietta and my partner had fish of the day, sea bream. Desert was fig cheesecake, excellent. We enjoyed a bottle of vino rosato.

Very reasonably priced, friendly service, in spite of our attempts to speak Italian!

Great sea food. Amazing mare antipasti, excellent fresh fish and smiling waiters. House wine was delicious. This is a place where the locals eat.... What else?

We ate very good in this restaurant which was in the town, a bit far from the costal side. Antipasti was ok, frittura di mare very good but the best was risotto gamberini and zucchini. Prices are reasonable. Staff and service was also good. I highly reccommend it.
