We had a lovely lunch at this small restaurant. They make everything fresh and you can definitely taste that! Prices range from 6 euro for a pasta dish to 15 euro for fancy sea food dishes.

Six of us had the fixed price fish menu. It was lovely and only 15 euros. The owners were charming and made us feel very welcome. One of the best dining experiences we have had in Italy.
