Seafood is very well fried, not ruined with lemon juice over the meal. Chips are homemade. Atmosphere is old style, with paintings of Cesenatico in black and white apparently taken during old times. Staff is very kind. A great place if you want fried fish, but not-fried options are also available. Prices are not over the average.

It was organized from the US. After a couple of email messages we had a reply that included a detailed menu with special recommendations for family members with food allergies. The response was quick and corteous by one of the managers. At our arrival to the restaurant we were greeted with friendlyness and big smiles. During the lunch we were... More

There is a saying in cookery that goes "all it's good when deep fried", however making an outstanding deep fried seafood platter is a truly difficult art. The Osteria de Gran Fritto specialized in this art with consistent results over the years. Its "frittura di paranza" along with season sliced vegetables finely battered and quickly fried in good oil at... More

We just had dinner there and we were very happy with our choice. Staff is professional (that's maybe what some previous reviewers called "coldness") and the frittura is just great (i am an expert of this...). Atmosphere is very nice and prices pretty reasonable. Strongly suggested for anybody passing by this sweet village.

- turned up late - 10pm - on a rainy December evening with an Italian colleague having taken a detour to see the nativity scenes on the fishing boats in the harbour. We walked into the restaurant and had the most astonishing meal I have ever had - my colleague, and Italian from nearby Faenza, declined the menu and just... More
