We had a delicious meal here, with all 6 diners delighted with their choices. Few of us ate the same dishes so I would wager that whatever one orders would be tasty. The ingredients seemed very fresh and the wine list represented good value.

L'Orsa Maggiore is a fully fledged restaurant and beach in Forte dei Marmi. The chef is ecologically engaged, the food of high quality and the situation fabulous. They offer also special weekend seminars introducing modern cuisine. Prices are ok, a bit at the higher end, not uncommon in Forte dei Marmi. The beach is fabulous and you have also a... More

Sitting at the beach under the stars. Waiters are always there but "invisible". Have good recommendations. The food (mostly seafood) is excellent. Also the wine menu. 190 eur for two including a bottle of wine and a whole sea brass. Definitely worth the. Money. Go there.

This beachside restaurant in Forte dei Marmi has it all: stunning, perfect position by the beach, the best service, food...wonderful! We went for our 20th Anniversary dinner, a surprise place for me, recommended by dear friends who summer always in Forte dei Marmi, so they knew what they were talking about. Our servers, Salvatore and Giovanni, could not be better.... More

Nice restaurant on the beach. We had lunch. Food and service is good. We wanted to book a dinner on one of the following nights but it is always fully booked. Very central location close to the city centre.

Worth a trip to dine at this beautiful vision of a restaurant shimmering in blue and white right on the sea. Very elegant presentation of organic produce and wild, never farmed fish. Only the best olive oils complement the short menu's realistic offerings of wonderful small clam pasta, warm seafood salad, fabulous orata. Reasonably priced wine list of top regional... More

This was referred by a knowledgable friend and it lived up to expectations. We had tuna and tagliatelle which were both excellent. The tagliatelle had black truffles and was delicious. We sat outside in a cool breeze which was delightful. The manager helped with a good wine selection. Overall highly recommended. Parking is a bit difficult but other than that... More

Typical restaurant from Forte dei Marmi, right on the beach, in a "bagno". The food and service are not exceptional but quite good. The location is wonderful, and the prices are very reasonable by Forte dei Marmi standards (we were 3 and spent around 55 euros per person, including wine). I would definetly reccomend it and I will be back... More
