Last summer a friend that uses to visit every yer complained about the fact that all restaurants where I took him had the same menu, nice food, but always the same stuffs. I had never thought about it before but he was right so I started looking for something new. Finally I found this Tiziano that I had never heard about before. It's not in the center but you can go by bike or even walking if you like. The restaurant is not huge and the fact that I appreciated as soon as I got in is the room betwen tables. We chosed the "chef menù" and it was a great choice, 3 appetizers, a pasta dish, some tempura fillet fishes and a dessert. Everything was fresh and well cooked. The chef menu costs 30€ and wines start from 12€.
Favorite Dish: Tuna tartare was excellent.
This is definitly not the place I like to go, it looks like those restaurants where you go more to see and to be seen than to eat. I went because I knew the sushi chef and I was sure about his skills. The sushi was infact excellent, he is brazilian and so not everything is japanese style.
The carateristic is that sushi can be served on a boat there are for 2 or 3 persons. I tried also some other fish dishes that were definitly nothing special.
The restaurant has also a sushi bar where you can seat for an aperitive.
We paid 60€ each with a good bottle of wine, it's not cheap but the sushi was really good, definitly the best you can find in this area. They also have pizza, but I didn't try it.
Favorite Dish: Sushi on the boat.
This very small restaurant is owned by a family from abruzzo region and most dishes are caracteristic of that area.
The restaurant as I said is really small so it's better to book.
They have a big choice of wines both white and red ones.
Food quality is over standard but I must say it's a little bit overpriced, though worth if you like tastefull meat dishes.
Favorite Dish: selection of ham, salami and cheeses are really good and particular, not the ones you usually find, the waiter explaines where they are from and what bread and sauces are best for each kind.
This is a seaside town so, practically all restaurant cook fish or may be pizza but hardly any meat.
This is finally a smallrestaurant specialised in meat dishes.
It's really small, about 30 people and no more with the old osteria style.
Eating starter and a pasta dish and a main course meat dish with wine and a great grape to finish costs about 25 euros, probably one of the best deal in town.
Favorite Dish: On thursday gnocchi con la papera which is gnocchi pasta with duck, they are really excellent.
Their best wine actually is not local but a red wine from Napoli area: lachima cristi.
Now they also serve fish which is definitly nothing special.
It's a pity because when they only cooked meat the quality was really good, now it's just one of the many restaurants in town.
This is probably the most popular fish reastaurant in town as it is very centrally located.I think their cousine is pretty good but it doesn't change at all during the seasons, you can go in december or july and you have the same menu.The tourist menu at 25 euro is not bad though as it includes pasta, main course and water and wine. But if you try to order from menu you will probably end up paying more than 40 euros which is definitly over standards.
Favorite Dish: Their best dish is the clam soup and clam spaghetti(spaghetti con le vongole).
This is one of the most classy restaurants in town.
It is the place you usually go for the people that you will find more than the food. You can have fish dishes or pizza ones but they are definitly overpriced if compared with standard restaurant prices, but I must say location and service are an additional value in here.
In summer you have outside tables facing the seaside and it's really nice.
Favorite Dish: I do not reccomend this place for lunch or dinner but for a good aperitife, enjoying a mojito on the outside sofa looking at the sea at sunset is really good and definitly wirth the price you pay.
This is a very old style italian trattoria, one of the few place where actually today you can have a good carbonara.The place is extremely simple, even ridicolous for some sides, for example they do not even have the same tablecloth at any table.
The restaurant is very small so try to book.
Favorite Dish: Ciabattoni is their best dish.It is a very big kind of pasta with a seafood sauce, it's really huge and delicious.
Da ferruccio is not the real name of this ice-cream place, but everyone calls it so... maybe it's the owner, maybe a past owner... whoever Ferruccio is, it's a fact of minor importance. What matters is that its ice-creams are "made in heaven"... really.
Favorite Dish: My favourite is "bacio", which is chocolate and nuts - but everyone else seems to agree that the top of the tops is the hazelnut ice-cream.
We went to this pub/restaurant and order Donkey meat.
Call me adventurous....well you got to try anything new once and it was an interesting thing to do too.
Favorite Dish: Yes it is really donkey meat and I tried it .. proof on the photo. Its eaten with bread just like a sandwich. Thinly slice like a prosciutto -the Italian style of dry-cured meat.
Well it taste different. Would I try it again... nah I think I will skip!!
But the stuffed fried olive was delicious. :)
