Swordfish Messina was special. The waiter helped us with our wine choice. The views across the harbour helped make all of the visit a special one.

One of us had a risotto which was not very special, BUT: the tuna with pistacchio crust and balsamico sauce was really the best tuna we ever had! Add to that this restaurant has a nice waterside terrace, and decent service, and you end up...More
