Marco's best dining view comes also with some of its finest cuisine. The name means "salt and pepper," an indication that this palatial restaurant with terrace seating overlooking the beach adheres to the basics of Southern Italian cuisine. Pastas, sausages, and ice cream are made right here in the kitchen. Simple, artfully presented dishes—butternut squash ravioli, cornish hen with grilled oyster mushrooms, yellow-pepper-and-shrimp soup, baked salmon with lobster sauce,
chianti-braised short ribs, and tomato-crusted Atlantic salmon —explode with home-cooked, long-simmered flavors. With the exception of a handful of pizzas, lunch is more traditional, less Italian.
