This restaurant is on the less prosperous side of the town, to the left of the port. It is right next to the ferry dock. It's worth taking a look around the port and looking at the fishermen's equipment and their work. From outside, the restaurant seems somewhat dull. It has windows on all four sides and doesn't seem very inviting. However inside it is split into small (quite noisy) rooms which are comfortable and cozy. Perhaps the tables are a little bit too close together but they are nicely laid out with yellow tablecloths. As for the menu, there are excellent Courgette and Coda di Rospo skewers, marinated sardines, cuttlefish with potatoes, prawns with mushrooms and seabass with olives. They have first courses like Risotto and Mezze Manciche (kind of pasta) with lobster (al dente, well cooked and with lots of sauce). They also serve delicate tasty Ravioli with prawns and Courgettes and Tagliolini allo Scoglio. For the second course, they serve a particularly good fried turbot, sea bass and sweet well-seasoned large Mazzancolle (kind of fish) which are cooked with onions and Courgettes in Vermentino wine. They have a good wine list which is has a fairly good variety and is organized so that there are bottles at all prices.
Il Mulino's menu goes beyond the range of the usual traditional dishes: there are seasonal vegetables and meats; charcoal-grilled meats; classic Florentine beefsteaks and lamb; you will find delicious sausage; rabbit rolls with Prosciutto, chicken with thyme and bay; and roast duck with speck, roast lamb; even stuffed pigeon. The tagliatelle with artichokes, fava beans, and the green gnocchi with melted cheese are also very good. The wine list is small, but sufficient for accompanying the culinary offerings.
