There was excellent choice of local specialities. The dishes were of high quality, but the portions on some of the main meals were a bit small. The atmosphere was great and the service was excellent. The price level was a little on the higher side.

Delicious dinner of baked sea bass for me and salted cod ravioli for my partner. Followed by off menu ricotta dessert which was well worth trying! Accompanied by a lovely bottle of local bubbly recommended by the waiter. Would go back again.

One of the few places which offers a variety of fixed daily menus, which is a huge plus. Food was simple and very good, this place was a good choice in the midst of mediocre restaurants in the centre of the town.

Very good local italian food with specalities from the sea. Nice, fast and friendly service. Good value for the money. Well placed in the middle of the old town.
