Magical location, good authentic Italian med cuisine

The location is perfect for a moonlit night. We arrived without a reservation, but they accommodated our 7 guest family, as we agreed to leave before the reserved large table arrived. The food was fresh, as if it was just plucked from the sea, lapping almost at our feet. The location was... read more

Have been there 3 times in the past week and will be going back. It has been hee since 1955 and they serve the very best in Italian dishes and the freshest seafood that is very well grilled or baked. All seafood appetizers are great and I have had the seafood mixed apetizer twice and will have it again with... More

My husband and I had lunch here on our last day in Tuscany. This is a great place for a relaxing lunch with great food and a "million dollar" view of the harbor. We ate outside and had great service. I had Fruit da Mar (sp) fish of the sea on pasta in a white sauce. The variety of sea... More

We had sea bass in this lovely trattoria, served with roasted potatoes and tomatoes in olive oil, perfectly cooked, while we enjoyed the view over the bay in Porto Santo Stefano. It was a perfect lunch and we are very grateful to the friend who shared it with us.

We were surprised to have found this restaurant. The location was very good. You can see a lot from where you're sitting, especially through the windows all around the restaurant. The food was good, simple but very tasty. The staff is really nice and help you whereever they can. It is not very expensive, so enjoy your dinner at Il... More

Il Moletto has been around as far as I can remember. And I have been going to P.S.Stefano for my entire life (43 now). The food is always fresh and tasty, my personal favorite are the "Tagliolini del Golfo" (white fish shreds in a tomato based sauce) - just yummy albeit, light. What truly takes the cake however is the... More

We tried anchovies to start with as antipasto delicious and delicate followed by risotto with lemon and prawns such a delicate dish highly recommended. I could not resist having Frito misto which had all locale fresh fish... More

We ate here as it was recommended by a local. It's right at the waters edge and was made to feel welcome as soon as we arrived. Ask for the fish of the day. They oven bake it with potatoes, tomato and olives. We weren't sure of some of the fishes that were local, so they bought out a plate... More
