Excellent family-run place on a back street and filled with locals

This small trattoria is on a back street in a town filled with ceramic shops and specializes in fresh fish and other seafood. The place is staffed with family members of the owners. Service was excellent, the atmosphere was simple but highly authentic.

We dined there with the host and hostess of the agriturismo we were staying in. Since they had no guests for dinner other than my husband and I, they took us to one of their favorite local places and it was excellent. We had seven dishes served in four courses and all were terrific.

Antipasti: Marinated fresh anchovies with lemon, parsley and olive oil' squid with olive oil, onions, potatoes, and pomodorina

Pasta: Two - pasta with mussels and clams and a sauce of white wine, pomodori, olive oil, and garlic; and a pasta with spadefish.

Then, two fish dishes: fried fish misto of small red fish, mullets, calamari, baby squid and a larger fish (failed to record the name) - all excellent; and fish in a pomodori sauce.

Fresh Strawberries and pineapple for dessert.

House red.

We don't know the price because we didn't see the bill, but it appeared to be a reasonably priced place as the guests were lots of families and young people.
