Overrated ?

Madeo is no longer what is was, the decoration is a bit outdated, the food is still very good but a bit expensive, the wine list is excelent and the service professional but it misses the ambiance it had years ago when all the celebrities went there to have a feast. It feals like a waiting room in... read more

Eating in Italy all week and went to this restaurant my first night and wanted a perfect dinner my last night so returned and was not disappointed! The food is off the charts, the service the same, the wines chosen for us were perfect and the staff was enjoyable. Some say this is an expensive restaurant, but in my opinion,... More

If you want to have an excellent traditional meal in Forte, go to Madeo. Incredibly fresh fish, cooked in the oven with fresh vegetables are a lovely meal.

Forte dei Marmi is an expensive beach resort in Tuscany. Prices are generally high and have been pushed even higher by wealthy Russians. We were staying at the excellent Una Hotel and wanted to venture out locally and try some restaurants. The Una Hotel is about 20 minutes walk from the beach and so there aren’t many local restaurants to... More

We enjoyed our meal there, as it was good. Though some of the scampi in my seafood salad were not totally fresh. The staffs were friendly, but I'll consider that the service was ok. We can feel that they're very busy pampering the Russian guests at the table beside us then took care of us. We ended up has to... More

Before you get to the downtown crush of Forte dei Marmi, near the exit from the Autostrada there's an innocuous looking little place called Madeo on the right heading for town. If your tastes are very simple, meaning you want simply the best, then this is the place for you. Service is extraordinary, and is subdued in its presence. Be... More

with no view and classic interiers it's all about food / specializing on seafood although Bistecca alla Fiorentina was fantastic as well / very informal and warming atmosphere / perhaps, one of the best restaurants in Forte
