For once, we picked somewhere for dinner based on location and ambiance, rather than likely food quality. It’s a bar & restaurant, right on the waterfront – big, buzzy and very casual.
And the food was quite decent. We just had main courses. For one of us, “clams alla vongole”. Yes, I know that’s clams in both English and Italian but, hey, I didn’t write the menu. What came was angel hair pasta in a clingy lemony sauce, topped with a scattering of fried clam strips. Not exactly your classic Italian preparation but pleasant enough.
For the other, a small fillet steak came cooked accurately as requested, with skin-on fries. A side order of mixed salad was pretty much as you’d expect, although the dressing had an incongruous sweetness.
From a previous trip to the city, I know there’s better food to be had, but I doubt there’s a better location – particularly if it was a warm summer evening when eating on their deck would be excellent.
