Fodor's Review

Brotherly love (and ownership) is what makes this old-town restaurant so exceptional, in addition to the quality seafood dishes. Modern artwork, stone pillars, and arched ceilings give way to tables draped in gold linen. Appetizers created by the Ladu brothers include caviar with artichoke, octopus salad, and smoked salmon buttered with goat cheese and rolled into a crepe. The seasonally changing menu always features local fish and might include homemade pastas such as maccheroncini neri con calamari (squid-ink-dyed noodles with clams, calamari, and zucchini puree). Desserts of ginger ice cream and chocolate lava cake are not to be missed. Service is attentive and welcoming.
