We had been promising ourselves we would eat here for several years and when we finally did we were not disappointed.
The outside restaurant area is overhanging a small bay, which at early evening provides an atmospheric environment, more so while the sun is setting over the sea.
The four of us all had 4 courses, which were smallish sized portions, but altogether easily enough food. Each course was well prepared, presented in a modern, stylish way using fresh and interesting local ingredients and, most importantly, utterly delicious and cooked to perfection. Probably the best meal we have eaten in the area.
With all that said, it was definitely the most expensive, coming in at circa 60 Euro a head, so may not fit every budget, but worth pushing the boat out at least once.

Bloody awful place! View superb.

Typical English family (of 4) we may be but €90 for two plates of spaghetti (kids) and two tuna with green salad plus water. HELLO.

Tuna was excellent but (to the owner) try NOT taking the piss price wise. You carry on like this and you WILL eventually fall on hard times and wonder why!

Avoid the restaurant at ALL COSTS if you want good value!

You even added on €12 for service charge (which is illegal). Nice one. Enjoy the Euros, enjoy laughing at the English mugs who paid in good faith whilst I ask my friend to have a quiet polite word to the mayor yeah? I eagerly await your bankruptcy so I can buy the place and fill it with Daleks, make a museum and turn it in to something more useful than an overpriced, less than average restaurant with a view!

Wow we were lucky to came to this wonderful restaurant. We were on our way to Reggio and trying to find a place for lunch.
Terrific fresh seafood. Not all too much. Be aware of that. Just a pasta primo is not enough.

The swordfish was an excellent catch, but the preparation was superb! I've never had such a perfectly prepared swordfish served along with stuffed pasta shells with a food presentation and wine selection to match.

This restaurant is hidden from the traffic, located in a calm small street with a wonderful panoramic view of the sea sunset. Parking is right in front, and this is something rare for Pizzo.
We took the degustation menu, with 6 courses for only €45! Great quality, innovation and service. I absolutely recommend it!
