Outdoor seafront last summer. Indoor this time round. The octopus salad was as fresh as they come. Followed up with a delicious cannolo Siciliano.

Popped in today but service left us without part of the order although not charged for it. Prices a little more than competitors in same area. Nice wrap for me but husband left disappointed lacking order.
