Hmm, this is what I really love, fine fresh and moderately expensive fishes & crabs. It is, however, too much if asking 26€ for the wild orata (orata nostrana), should cost around 20 euros, not more then that. The other guy have put the price of 10€ for "orata nostrana" but there must be something wrong about it. Or this is breeded orata or it's not fresh at all.
Even calamari (squid fish) cost too much, I would never pay 14€ for calamari from Mare Ligure, what then here could cost calamari from the Adriatic Sea, the best calamari that excisting?

What to buy: I suppose its possible to burgain the prices for the fishes, especially if buying more then 1 kg. Good chances to reducing prices is if coming here and buy after 1 or 2am, the next day this fish doesn't worth much so they must sell it the same day.
