We spent a fun, laid back week in Santa Maria La Scala. There aren't many places to eat in the village, and this place is neck and neck (and neighbor to) La Grotta when it comes to rustic Italian seafood. We went as a family...More

Had a wonderful dinner. The owner is very accommodating but if you don't understand/speak at least a little italian the language barrier could present a problem. Food is expertly prepared. Choices in the off season are limited to the catch of the day but you...More
