For a starter I recommend Insalata Tiepida di Mare (10 euro). I've also tried Spedino di Gamberi alla Palermitana (10 euro), but it's not as good... The... More

In May, we came back to Porto Badisco after more than 30 years and were delighted to find such a nice relaxed place to eat right down in the bay. The fresh fish was delicious and the prices very reasonable. We don't want to wait another 30 years before returning!

Bad, overcooked food. When you have a remark, the reaction is outrageous: "we hope you won't return as a client". Never been treated like in this 'restaurant'. WARNING: don't go here for dinner.
