My wife and I ended an absolutely wonderful 18 days in southern Italy with a much less than wonderful meal at Be Eat. We really wanted to like this restaurant but it was such a mixed bag overall.

On the plus side, it is a very striking white and silver modern interior. Our waitstaff was very pleasant and solicitous. My tuma main course was perfectly prepared with a great nut crust and delicious "jam" alongside.

On the minus side my wife's sea bass (and we had been eating Italian seafood nonstop for two weeks) was just terrible. It was so dry that she couldn't even eat half. It might have been a nice piece of fish once upon a time. Unfortunately, our Italian is so poor (non-existent) that we couldn't convey our displeasure. (Not their fault that we dont speak their native tongue.)

In between - the primi was so-so ravioli. Again, we're pretty experienced Italian food diners, but the ravioli were well-short of al dente. Also, we made it clear (or tried to) that we would be sharing the first course and both would have separate second courses. Mary's overbaked sea bass was served at the same time as the ravioli so that I ate my tuna all by itself. Whatever the language difficulties, who would have wanted a primi and secondi served simultaneously? Lastly, for us the otherwise rather classy ambiance was certainly diminished by the loud MTV-type music show from numerous TV screens in the restaurant. (And, yes, I do get it that the music gave the place a BEAT - Be Eat.)

This could have been a good experience and we wanted to like Be Eat but it fell far short.

Wandering around and looked on Google for lunch locally. This was the closest place open and a very happy find! Excellent fresh food - we had sea food and a cheese fish. Language a bit of a challenge, but worth the effort of looking up items on the menu for translation.
Really recommend this place. Local wine also excellent, as was the service.

Google search found this place after walking to several others that were closed (Monday In Feb).

The service and food were great. Very local, little English spoken and no English menu and mores the better for that!

Can highly recommend the Cartoccia di Frito di mate ( seafood deep fried and wrapped in paper). Washed down with a glass of the local red!
