    has the best shrimp in this place. Loved the ocean view at night. Interestingly its very quiet in the dining area. You really cant hear the music. Lovely staff. Excellent service. The food came out on time. Can do better though with the dining setting. Seem a bit outdated. Great experience though

    Il Covo has the best pizza in town. There is something magical about their pizzas and I can't stay away! Worth a visit for a meal.
