About Cantina di Miky

A bit pretentious, but in the hands of a very good and friendly sommelier, is beach restaurant Cantina di Miky. After having worked abroad for a while, the sommelier returned to her hometown and has made a wonderful list of great wines from all over Italy. Of course there are great local wines, but you can find both the natural La Stoppa here as well as more conventional Illy’s Podere Di Ripi and other famous wines.

Prices are very decent for international standards, though slightly more elevated than in rural Italy. That is not surprising however, considering it’s on the seaside in a very touristy, though charming, village. Make sure to emphasize to the waiters that you’re not in a hurry and want to take things slow in order not to find your starter plate having been removed whilst the main course is being served. It’s a lovely wineplace, but needs a bit of instructions on how to appreciate it best.
