My husband and I recently visited Gilda beach club - we hired sun loungers on the beach and had lunch there. The food was excellent and the setting really special - the dining area on the terrace outside overlooking the beach is beautiful. The wine list was extensive and well priced. I would really recommend anyone looking for a pleasant... More

Every year my family and I spend our summer in Italy. We think " Gilda" is the best restaurant in FDM. we love to sit on the beach and enjoy our food, especially the fish which is always fresh and never dissapoints. The service is great and the owners are always so friendly, I would recommend it to anyone visiting.

When we first entered we were skeptical about food quality actually on the beach. To our surpass the food was exquisite, haute cuisine, wine selection was world class, service was impeccable. We will surely return.

It's a challenge to rate restaurants in Italy, because the food there is just amazing all over! Business associates chose this restaurant, and while the food was good, the outdoor seating was very uncomfortable, as they use "director" style canvas chairs, which i didn't care for because you are sitting dining for hours. The tables are so close together, we... More

Gilda just keep getting better! This continues to be our favorite spot in Forte dei Marmi. Food, service and ambiance are all perfect. The antipasti and and pasta dishes are my favorite, wish there were more spots like this around the world.
