This attractive Lido/Marina Village spot has a
welcome concept: the best examples of cuisine from all over the
Mediterranean. The sunny, art-strewn room overlooks Newport Harbor and
makes you feel as though you've just arrived in Nice (or Portofino or Mykonos).
Whet your appetite with lighter fare such as pancetta-wrapped scallops,
tuna tartare or the fine cheese plates (French or Italian), but it's the thin, crispy
pizzas that never cease to impress. The Margherita is a particularly fine
example, with smoked mozzarella pushing it over the top.
