Delicious tasting and good service!

Very extensive wine list worth checking out; can enjoy from something as simple as a pizza, to the most elaborated pasta dishes and delectable seafood preparations. Recommend the gnocchi alle scampi!

Fresh fish at it's best....and friendly staff eager to please. The fish was simply prepared and tasted like it came from the sea to my plate.

Just looking for a light lunch, we popped in and were soon being served. We had pasta, beer and coke. It was reasonable in taste and portion. The service was perhaps a little frosty and it took some time to get attention even though there were less than ten in the restaurant. Just prior to posting this I read some... More

The setting is elegant but sober, the service very professional and elegant. The food out standing. I had octopus and patatoes salad followed by sea food spaghettis, just perfect!. My wife took an out standing... More

We found this restaurant by accident last year but went back very deliberately this year - and weren't disappointed. Friendly staff, a great location and the food is brilliant. The home made sorbetti are out of this world! It's not cheap - little is in Forte dei Marmi - but well worth the treat!

This restaurant enjoys a very good position on the lungomare of Forte dei Marmi and is quite fashionable, but it was a delusion. The place is overcrowded (too many tables and seats in this small restaurant....) and there are simply not enough waiters to tend so many tables when the place is fully booked. This means that you wait to... More

Having been the worst table in the restaurant (next to the kitchen door), we all had a first hand insight to the grueling work that is involved in making and delivering food. The food itself was good but the experience of the position of the table means we wont go again.

Nice location, although you have no sea views (city and side street views were we could gather a place after well in advance reservation). Has it advantages - you can concentrate on the food instead of the views;). We got a great starter (fish involtinies) - really something special and worth trying. Good pastas, although a bit too dunk into... More

A degree of service almost over the top, a bit confused bunch of positive waiters, with a charming result. Good food and a great wine list. We had the grilled fish of the day...and to our taste it was to much of the small stuff.
