This sleepy fishing village, used as the setting for the waterfront scenes in the Oscar-winning film Il Postino, has been relatively immune to life in the limelight. Apart from the opening of an extra restaurant and bar, there have been few changes. This is the type of place where even those with failing grades in art class feel like reaching for a paintbrush to record the delicate pink and yellow facades. The Graziella bar at the far end of the seafront
offers the island's famous lemons squeezed over crushed ice to make an excellent granita.
