Ate here beginning october with my wife; grilled swordfish, pasta with shrimps and ice tiramisu. All well prepared. Service is ok, which is good for italy in my opinion. Prices are fine.

Really helpful, friendly staff, beautiful food and a table next to the sea! Amazing. Had the best steak and delicious pasta with sea food. I wish I could go back more easily.
