What a find! We stumbled across this fish only restaurant as we walked around town and had a wonderful meal here. There's no menu as the restaurant only cooks whatever is fresh on the day. We had a meze of anti pasti which were all great and I loved the octopus in tomato sauce most. We then had some spaghetti... More

Very good seafood and pasta. No menu, you get today's freshest ingredients and the chef's choice of dishes. Tried different antipasti and primi and secondi, very tasty indeed. Good service.

Had the most amazing experience here with my boyfriend and his family. They are Italian, and I am Australian. There wasn't a menu to order from but i think it was so great that they only sell what they get fresh that day and change accordingly. Continued my addiction to alici fritte being down in the south of Italy and... More

I read the reviews for this place and I was fancy a try :) best choice, owner/waiter took us on his hand thru the menu, just with the fresh fish of the day. Everything was great, good glassware and cookware so not just a trattoria but an actual restaurant. We ate seafood for four, 2 entrees 2 pastas 1 seafood,... More

This place serves only the catch of the day - therefore, no menu is available. They tell you which fish is in (show them raw on the platter) and sugesst few ways they can prepare it for you so you can choose for yourself! My husband had gluten-free spagetti with vongole as the first, really great!

Please don't go. No menu...was told chef's choice. Waiter pretended not to understand English, amazingly he knew how to tell us we had to order by the chef's choice. I was happy with prawns, hubby allergic to shell fish so brought out whole fish to show. We asked for salad first...nothing was brought out but the table next to us... More

If u are looking for a place with a nice fish in the Centro Historico de Salerno, this is the option. Of course, it is mandatory you understand a few words of Italian or, otherwise, you leave yourself dive with stream. The style here is clear: no menu. The waitress or even the owner let you know which are the... More

Very tasty and original starters , good wine and it is very affordable prices. Main courses consist of the freshest seafood prepared especially for you, it can be cooked with pasta and seafood that... More

the food was good but there was no menù and so no way to know the price until the bill arrived. 2 set of starters and 1 second 50 € with the bill written on a piece of paper without a proper bill (looks like they didn't pay any tax on our meal). p.s. they don't seem to like credit... More
