We've spent a wonderful Dinner with a marvellous sight on the sunset over Piombino and the sea. The Dinner was high class and the atmosphere was very friendly although the small team was very busy but alert and very obliging. The 5 points we rate are not not enough!!! Congrats!!! Whenever we will be around we shall be back!

I was here 2 times on my holiday and both times I tried different types of food. Pasta is excellent no matter what type. I recommend with seafood or fresh fish. House wine (white) is also very good for hot summer.
