Food was good, manager/owner very sweet and gracious but we had 4 people, shared 2 pasta plates and a fried calamari and it was $80 with the coperto. Not worth it in my opinion.

Without doubt one of the best seafood risottos in the world. Spectacularly fresh fish cooked to perfection.

We were informed by the local woman that the restaurant is run by a husband and wife team, their sons... More

Food was superb. but service was a little slow. We both had risottos, they were cooked just right. Perfect aldente and seasoning. Heard that Jamie Oliver loved their rosottos. Everything was good!
