Good food

Very nice restaurant with excellent food. Pasta dishes come in small sizes and are made to be ordered as starters. The tiramisu was not good, but the restaurant offers complementary petit fours which are very nice.

This was a recommendation from out hotel staff and while it appearded that well healed in Forte Dei Marmi including a well known Opera Star frequented this establishment, it was just okay. The prices and final bill would have been okay if the service was spectacular and the food was Michelin star quality, but it was not.

This was the best ever raw seafood I had. Come here and enjoy this marvelous well presented dish. Although low season this restaurant wasn't empty at all. This is a sign, believe me...

I think at one time it was the place to eat. However it's just OK. Not really worth the high prices. 2 people runs around 300.00 USD. Fish is fresh but not the best quality. I prefer the restaurants in town.

This is truly one of the best restaurants in Forte dei Marmi. Once we went there, we booked it for 6 more times (each other day) during our stay. Very welcoming atmosphere, stuff knows each small detail of their cuisine and can advise everyone with defferent taste. Seafood is awesome, champagne and wine list is vast, very children-friendly place as... More

Dinner at Bistrot is always one of the highlights of our time in Forte . Food is delicious and service is very professional and first class . Tremendous fish including sea bass in salt crust . Restaurant is very chic - you want to specify table outside to get full atmosphere . One Michelin star in 2014 guide and deserves... More

No idea why People like this. The service is ... Euh... What service? The food is not worth the money. They even tried to give us a RAW Fish. Never ever again Go to Lorenzo's instead.
