Grilled fish plate with only 2 small of grilled fish and the rest is filled out with Gambas and salat. In general, far too expensive for Italia. Restaurant is nice. Toilett is a catastrophe!

Il Farfarello very known for fresh seafood, and varied menus of the region; friendly ambiance, super tray of food, a delight for your eyes, offers you local cuisine for a perfect dinner. You need a reservation.
