“Experience the scrumptious food of Aterina. It is located in the 2000 year old town overlooking the sea. And if you are lucky admire the spectacular sunset while you enjoy the delicious food of Aterina. I in particular love the "bits and pieces on a fork" with the beautiful aroma of their white wine and my food experience is not complete without the unusual and refreshing basil cake. The charming owner Maja and the lovely and handsome staff made it all a wonderful experience. ”
