When we first drove down to Marina di Novaglie, we were captured by the light, the rocks and the sea. There are only 2 places to eat at the Marina; we walked down the steps closer to the bay and found Lo Scalo where we had coffee. After looking at the Christmas lunch set menu, we made the reservation. Christmas Day was a shining sunny day; our table near the window had lots of light and the welcome from Cesare made us feel very comfortable. The dishes served were all very good; once we had to warn Cesare to slow down so that we could enjoy our lunch and not feel too heavy. During the breaks we looked at the numerous photos of movie and music celebrities who visited this place through the years. Having been previously In some Caribbean island, at the Seychelles, in Acapulco and in Australia it is not difficult to imagine why this place is so magic. Perhaps the low season had a part in the owner choice of the average wine and the insignificant seafood salad amongst the starters but on their side has to be mentioned the kindness to substitute some dishes due to one of us having a shellfish allergy.
