La Scialuppa information
Lonely Planet review
Almost 150 years young and a hit with Italian VIPs, La Scialuppa is a sound choice for romantic harbourside noshing. Predictably, seafood is the star, from the moreish fritto misto (mixed fried seafood) to the vino-infused risotto alla scialuppa (seafood risotto). In the warmer months, the yacht-flanking alfresco tables are a prized possession, so book ahead.
