The ambiance is pleasant enough, with wooden tables placed in an open wooden structure located on a side street of the lungomare (in case you are wondering, the restaurant name means "narrow street" in anglo-neapolitan…). Most of the raw ingredients used in the preparation of food tasted fresh and of good quality (with the disappointing exception of the frozen calamari in the fried fish mix).
But the good stops here.

The mixed fish appetizer, although nice-looking, was composed of items that did not go together well, with strong contrasting flavors covering weaker flavors; and the same was true for the pasta; and I already mentioned the fried fish mix with frozen ingredients. In short, it appears that the chef is not using the materials in a correct and balanced way, and the end results are rather dull dishes with nothing to remember.

When asking about desserts, we found out that only a small selection of pies was available, and surprisingly no ice-cream of any kind. House-made liquors at the end of the meal are traditional in this region - but they only had commercial brands.
The wine list was rather limited too, with a majority of labels from a single local producer.
Talking about service, I must say that individual waiters seemed quite well-trained, courteous, and knowledgeable - I would say definitely above average in the region - but unfortunately an overall coordination seemed to be lacking, and we often found ourselves in need to attract their attention, and dishes mostly arrived at the table out-of-sync. The bill is not particularly cheap.

Overall, my impression was that they are earnestly trying to provide a "good restaurant", but they still have a lot of things to improve before they can rise above average.

What a pity! We came looking for some great food and found it; however our visit was ruined by the service. Bread dumped on the table midway through our first course? Same with drinks which seemed an effort and no ability to drink wine by the glass. Then the crowning glory we were entertained throughout by Christmas Hits including - 'driving home for christmas' and 'God rest ye merry gentlemen'!?! How bizarre in June.

Decent service could have turned this into a 4/5.

We ate here with a friend. He told us that this was a great seafood restaurant. We agree! The seafood was fresh and prepared perfectly. The presentation was fantastic. We had an assortment of seafood, all of which were delicious. The wine was also great. Afterwards we had a great dessert. This was an enjoyable restaurant with enjoyable company.

Had dinner there the other night and were not disappointed at all. Menu had more fish than meats but offered something for everybody. Service was expedicious and attentive although a bit on the fanatic side ( you don't have to rush over to my table when I'm about to refill my wife's glass and do it for me, really). Food was beautifully presented and very tasty. Desserts were magnificent, or so my kids testified. Prices were very reasonable (90 euros for a three course meak with wine for the four of us). Too bad this restaurant is on a narrow sidestreet of the Lungomare; a view would have made it excellent)
