Lo Smeraldino information
Head eastwards past Marina Grande to reach this inviting blue-and-white beachside restaurant overlooking the fishing boats. As well as crisp-based pizzas, this is a good place for fancy risottos, like smoked salmon and caviar, or simple classics like grilled or poached local fish. Despite the location, this is not a place where you come wrapped in a sarong wearing flip flops; the atmosphere is one of understated elegance. Book ahead at weekends.
