Gaeta did not seem to me, a town with an active breakfast/brunch scene... when I arrived, i had to hunt for a place that would even take me as nothing really opens before noon.

Attention! If you want to eat here arrive early otherwise your name go on waitlist! We were lucky to arrive early, before Italian dinner time. Tried several daily offer and form the fix menu as well. All were fantastic. We have chosen a big bottle of beer which turned out to be Belgian and we wanted local stuff (but it... More

We were hot and tired today and were looking for somewhere to have a small lunch... We couldn't read any of the menu so just ordered four random small dishes and it was all really nice. Regret not ordering calamari after seeing other's. Great authentic vibe, v relaxed, good food and very reasonable.

Mare Fritto specializes fried seafood. The calamari is very good. They also serve other dishes if you do not want just fried food. Prices for some things seem a little high like 8 euro for a local craft beer seems a little outrageous.

this place has just about everything you want in a restaurant. great customer service, outside sitting with a scenic view, great food, and not too expensive. if you come to this you will not be disappointed. and you have to remember to try the fried calamari, it's the best I've had in all of Italy.

If you want to have a quick and tasty lunch then I really recommend this small outfit that serves simple yet extremely tasty food. Ingredients were fresh and well prepared. Mostly fried fish but also alternative options such as polpo al guazzetto and some pasta dishes. The setting is very casual with food that can be taken away or served... More

During a quick midday walk through Gaeta we were on the lookout for a snack place where we could pick up something to eat and not spend too much time - and we found something much better than we had imagined. At Mare Fritto we had fried Calamari and Anchovies and potato croquettes filled with cheese. It was all fresh... More

This small seafood restaurant doesn't look like much at first glance, but we were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food, service and range of boutique beers, all the while taking in the beautiful view of the bay. We had a marinated baby octopus salad, slightly battered calamaris and spaghetti vongole served in the frying pan. Every single dish... More

Stopped in here for a quick snack at lunch on a rainy afternoon. All the staff were super friendly. We had fried calamari, fried anchovies and potato croquettes. All were super delicious and even though most of the dishes are fried the food feels very clean and fresh. Reasonably priced too.

They serve fried fish (shellfish, cod and other). Prices are affordable. Location is very good. Service is perfect. I want to go there again if I ever come back to Gaeta.
