Fodor's Expert Review Antica Besseta

$$ Santa Croce Seafood

Tucked away in a quiet corner of Santa Croce, with a few tables under an ivy shelter, the Antica Besseta dates from the 19th century, and it retains some of its old feel. The menu focuses on vegetables and fish, according to what's at the market, with some meat dishes too. The fish is not all local, but it is served with a tasty sauce and is well prepared.
