The restaurant overlooks the small beautiful harbor, filled with colorful boats,... More

A business colleague and I visited this popular restaurant and were very happy we did. Great antipasti, perfect pasta, and tremendous seafood. Also, the homemade cassata for dessert was perfect. Their wine list was excellent and the service was very good.
