Christian is one of the nicest owners we've met. His restaurant is casual , the menu is extensive, the location is in the antique and characteristic part of Pollutri. Better to park in the town square and walk for 1 minute to the restaurant. His English is great as he worked in London and he is open every night in summer, off season closed on a Monday.
