It's worth a meal here just to marvel at the fish tanks embedded in the ceiling. And the Mediterranean-tinged trattoria-style cuisine is also very good. Start with some grilled octopus or a mixed antipasti. There's a wide range of pasta dishes, and the gnocchi here are light and tender. Sure, you can get a steak pizzaiola or veal marsala, but I recommend sticking with the extensive seafood options. In fact, if you want the pizzaiola sauce, you can have it over scallops, snook, or shrimp. A group can share the mixed seafood platter, which has a little bit of almost everything, from prawns and langoustines to fish and calamari. This place has an excellent wine list. The floral tablecloths are a bit schmaltzy, as is the roving trio of violins and guitar, but they do add to the charm of this local favorite.
