Located right on the waterfront at the charming coves on the south side of Monopoli, this restaurant and pizzeria specializes in seafood. What started as a simple mussels stand in the 1960s has evolved into a full-fledged quality restaurant that prepares the fresh catch of the day, along with wood-fired oven pizzas. They also have a full service bar.

You can enjoy a great view while sampling Puglia's fresh fish; the menu is attentive to possible food allergies, listing everything to make it easier for diners. The six-course antipasto is a meal in itself. Pasta dishes include linguine with sea urchins (a local favorite) or fresh-made tagliolini with lobster, though the seafood-stuffed ravioli are tempting, too. Main course fish can be done au gratin, grilled or braised. There are a few token meat dishes for those who don't like fish, and of course a full pizza menu, too.
