Lonely Planet review
Dating back several decades, this restaurant has a lovely terrace decorated with copper pans, ceramic mugs and strings of garlic and chillies. Locals in the know come here for seafood dishes such as the fritturina e pezzogne (a local white fish baked with potatoes and herbs in the wood-fired pizza oven) or tartare di palamito al profumo d’arancia (tartar of local fish with citrus). Undecided taste buds can go for the €28 four-course set menu.
