Auntie Pesto's is right on the waterfront with great views of the harbour, especially in summer from the patio. Warm and friendly, great service and tasty, beautifully prepared, fresh food. The smoked salmon platter and the mussels are just amazing.

Not quite our favorite place in Rome – but damn close. A friend took us for lunch and we split the seafood alfredo, which was perfection. Came back the next day and, at the waitress's insistence, tried the carbonara – which was exquisitely balanced. If...More

I dined here with friends, but also seemed a good spot for a date night. Lovely atmosphere and view of harbor. Service was attentive and provided great recommendations. Items we particularly loved were the scallop appetizer and the duck entree.

This would need to be a two part review. My wife ordered halibut and reported the dish as a 5. I ordered Puttanesca pasta and the taste was a 3 at best. Small local restaurant, no ambiance to speak of. Wholesome comes to mind
