Restaurant is a bit of the main roads so you can easily miss it. Regular car navigation will not help you much but Google map will.
The restaurant is nice and quite big. We got big table for seven and were served fast enough despite there was only 1 person serving at the time.
Initially we ordered few starters and than followed the recommendation by the waiter to wait with ordering main dish. And he knew why - the starters where more than you could imagine. Selection of cheese was excellent, own-baked muschels with parma chees also. Followed by meet and cheese balls, raw fish with onion, prosciutto, eggplant alla parmigiana. .. All of that topped with great white wine.
After having all that we were almost full so we have just order 3 main to share - two types of orrechiette and 1 pizza - just to round a perfect dinner.
And the price on the end was reasonable, maybe a bit above average for this part of Italy.
Go and try it but be slow on starters if you want to enjoy the main...

Beautiful place, nice environment... BUT;
- We had to wait 30 minuts for our starters. People who had arrived after us, started before...
- From the garden we were listening the chef (we guess) lauding in the kitchen every dish... terrible if you want a chill dinner...
- Food was... common. It looked nice, so you hope a good flavour but it was nothing exceptional....
- It's a pity... :( They have a good restaurant and they also could have a delicious food becouse there is a delicious sea food in the zone.
In general; it's neither cheaper nor good sea food.

I have been here many times and always find this placed filled with locals even in the low season. There must be a reason. The garden and restaurant is nice, food is reasonable in prices, service is friendly and food is plenty BUT

Quality of food must improve for higher ranking. It seems that the food is now a bit industrialized.

And take away the TVsets, which annoy the eating pleasure

Nice and pleasant place in a garden away from touristic mass confusion, the restaurant values only for it. It can be considered a tourist trap, as the food is absolutely standard. We didn't like neither the mussels (cozze gratinate), nor the fried fish.
