Expert review of Lo Zodiaco
A few years ago there was nothing on the port; pretty much all the action was up on the Piazzetta. But there's been a bit of a sea change (sorry) and now there are a couple of places worth checking out, including Lo Zodiaco.
The pizza here is fabulous: even if you don't want pizza, order up their focaccia - a light pizza base topped with fresh tomatoes and basil (no sauce). Delicious. For bigger appetites there are plenty of pasta, gnocchi, risotto dishes and fresh fish.
This is where the boat operators eat and the setting is lovely; slap bang on the port, you can smell the salt of the sea if there's a bit of a breeze (or the smell of diesel if a charter has just anchored).
On my last visit the service couldn't have been friendlier.
Hang a left when you get off the ferry and keep walking.
Unsurprisingly, thanks to its location, it's pricier than some less obvious or more out-of-the-way restaurants, but the food is good, the welcome is friendly and, if you choose well, you shouldn't wince too much when the bill arrives. Go easy – pastas are around the 12-15 euros mark – and you'll come out smiling, and even if you're up for a full blown harbour experience, with mains (secondi) starting at around 24-28 euros, a full meal for two will cost around 100-120 euros.
