Visited this place several times during trip and staff are incredibly friendly and welcoming. Seafood pasta is absolutely superb and all other dishes tried were without fault. If in this area, give it a try as it's certainly worth it. Best restaurant in port area

Great position overlooking the harbour, delicious pizzas, pretty good value, but not the best service. It was a shame that the dog on the next table (!) got a more friendly welcome than we did!

A small Italian restaurant sitting next to the harbor. All the foods are good but their pizza is exceptional! Love their seafood pizza.

This is my favorite pizzeria in LaCiotat and the pizza is made the proper way - in a woodfire oven! They also have other dishes and good salads. Definitely a place that should not be missed.
