Been going to this place since I was a child and it's absolutely awesome... the pizza is great, the pasta is tasty, the fish and seafood are always fresh! The view is also fantastic - ask to sit in the balcony in the summer!!

One of the greatest spots for restaurant! Great service, warm atmosphere and a value-for money menu! Do not try to visit it on Saturdays if you don't have a reservation. It's always fully booked!
