We both had cold, cold beers there in the morning as we sat by the beach. Not hurried at all, but total relaxation. We did not get to eat a meal there, but the display of fresh seafood on ice was outstanding. Sure that it...More

We enjoyed the setting of the Restaurant, but the food was 'just ok'. Service was a little slow but they had a large party they were attending too and our waiter didn't speak much English and our attempts at Italian were shameful:-) Overall, it was...More

Having sailed into Santa Maria di Leuca in high winds and confused seas, 10 hours from Crotone, we needed a supermarket and some cold beers. In spite of this being a bar we were refused service and told, in no uncertain terms, if we did...More

Alici marinate were not that 'marinate' more on raw side - one of us really enjoyed the other less so; but we did see a table next door have an entire raw plate which did look good. Frittura de paranza - is a simple dish...More

This seems to be one f the few places on the seafront in Leuca that couple a fantastic view with equally wonderful food. We ate with our two daughters and the staff were friendly and laid back when our 3 year old decided she wanted...More

We were looking for a good restaurant at the seaside. Tripadvisor isn't generous for the restaurants here and we were hesitating which one to choose. But 'azurro' didn't disappoint us. Ok, not worth a Michelin star. But walking along the sea in Leuca and searching...More

You couldn't have a better setting: it overlooks the beach and the bay. The seafood is fabulous - we had a simple meal of a plate of grilled prawns and a frito misto with a green salad. Couldn't fault it. Washed down with a crisp...More

Was a bit unsure as we were first in but soon filled and we had a very good meal. Mussels and Swordfish both excellent. Staff very attentive and helpful. Restaurant has best views out across the water and a second upstairs area for cooler months.

Aside from the poor wait staff. The food was very good. Fresh fish and pasta 🍝 I really enjoyed it.. staff was confused but quality and taste of food made up for it. Lovely view of the moon and the ocean
