We were visiting Porto Cesareo in low season for a few days and strolling around the seaside in search of a nice place to enjoy a seafood lunch. Because of its sunny terrace, that was packed with mainly locals, we decided to try Il rifugio del Naufrago. It was an excellent choice. The anti-pasti of calamar and smoked tuna were... More

I am traveling in Italy for my first time, with two friends who are Italian. They told me of a restaurant with a dish I had to try while I was here. We had mussels and a seafood appetizer plate (all were incredibly delicious and filling in itself), then shared a pasta dish: eggplant and swordfish with a blended pistachio... More

I will go again tomorrow before I... More

Uno dei pochi ristoranti con vista mare nei dintorni, dove la calorosa accoglienza da parte dei proprietari ci ha fatto sentire persone "di casa" fin da subito. Per non parlare della cucina tipica: forse la migliore pasta della nostra vita!! This is really a fantastic restaurant with everything home made. We've been to many restaurants around the world and in... More

Looking for a place to hide from the sun and where to eat something we found this restaurant with a beautiful view to the Isola dei conigli. We were almost the only ones to eat at that hour (I think there was only one other table occupied). I don't know if for this reason, but the food was very good,... More

The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly and complements the good quality local dishes. Portions are generous and well cooked. We have been frequenting this establishment for 18 months and have always enjoyed a friendly welcoming atmosphere and a consistent high quality of food.
