    I chose Sole Mare....Hostaria Da Vittorio was awesome the first year, bad the 2nd and so I am not sure how they are now...
    Gianni's is good as well and Azzuro, although both are owned by the same family so they should be....
    La Tratorria is great as well..

    funny thing is...most of the island food is good, not sure if it has to do with the salt air or the fact you are on vacation and just loving every thing about it !!!!

    We like Ellioti's. It's not GREAT Italian food (there is no GREAT Italian food on the island) but it satisfies our tastebuds when we're in the mood for pasta.
