Fodor's Review

A local institution, allegedly nicknamed after owner Salvatore Russo's eternal tan, this nautically themed place (the waiters even wear sailor uniforms) cannot be beaten for its location (right on the Spiaggia Grande) or as a great spot for people-watching. Regular visitors include Denzel Washington, who was best man at Salvatore's son's wedding. Despite catering to the day-tripping coachloads, the friendly staff will guide you through the restaurant's specialties, including zuppa di pesce (fish soup) and spaghetti con ricci di mare (spaghetti with sea urchins). Start with the house aperativo, the grotta dello smeraldo—gin, lemon, and crème de menthe.
