the outside looks like a bar but the restaurant in the back is nice and cosy, the service excellent and the prices very affordable. Some nice dishes in particular fish, but fresh? We can really recommend this place.

I love that trip advisor guides us to little gems we never would have stumbled on!!! Il Miraggio is a simple and cozy place owned by a couple. They didn't speak a word of English but couldn't have been nicer and more accommodating! The prices were much cheaper than the main page of the review says. We started with the... More

Back again for another excellent meal. We let them do a selection of starters and then chose our main courses. For me it was spaghetti vongole which was delicious - I also tasted their salt cod with chick pease which is one of their specialities and again this was delightful. The owners are so friendly and helpful and work easily... More

We were the only customers last Tuesday and picked from the menu recommended on the board. The fish dishes were fresh and very well cooked. The panna cotta had a little too much gelatin. We had some fairly good wine and also received some extra drinks. The complete meal for 2 came to 100 Euros, including the wine. A very... More

We wanted a restaurant with ocean view.... we got one with the tables in the sand! It was great to be sure. Good food.... good service... lots of fun for sure. Will certainly go back.. often times when one visits restaurants with great views and 5 star locations... the food and service doesn't measure up. This one did.

This is a delightful restaurant run by its owners; mother and father in the kitchen and their son working the tables. The food is just delightful - beautifully prepared and served and reasonably priced too. We were eight altogether (two Inglese and six Italiano) and shared several dishes of fish. I would say for me the cod (baccala) was outstanding... More
