The best thing here is the food: fresh fish cooked at very high level. Absolutely tasty, fresh and what else?! To try! If I have to try something to improve is the atmosphere, maybe a bit cold...Right price/quality ratio.

Small place in a side street, but popular. Maltagliati soup with shrimp and seafood garganelli excellent. The involtino di pesce spada was OK but a bit bready. Diners here all looked happy with what they had.

There is nothing unnecessary in this simple but good quality restaurant. The menu is not long, wine list does not have anything more expensive than about 20 euro but the food you are served is excellent with clear and fast service. Essentially a seafood eatery.
