The atmosphere, the staff and the food were just amazing. Asked the staff to recommend us wine that would fit our order of seafood and it was a perfect match. Would definitely recommend this restaurant if you’re ever in Massa. A definite must-visit

We came in a large group on a busy evening. The place looks a bit like a flea market mixed with a house boat. While the food was very good and creative, the service came to its limits. Although they offer also pizza (which comes...More
