we liked the choices, booked a table in advance and in the evening the restaurant was more than full and we were happy

highly recommended spot with excellent dishes, good waiters, fast service, broad choices and fair prices, so we come back again!

Worrying sign with all negative reviews in Italian and all positive in English... Wish i'd trusted my instincts! Food mediocre, place pretty standard and regret going here considering how much good food there is around here...

This restaurant is in a really beautiful town. The service was excellent with the owner showing great pride for his wonderful restaurant! For starters I had spaghetti with seafood and pesto and my husband had crab gnocchi both of which were heavenly dishes! We followed this with fried anchovies and grilled vegetables and I still can't stop thinking about those... More

We just tried the fish and seafood platter for 2 and just loved it! Well prepared, with olive oil and salt as only seasoning as to not hide the perfect taste of the fish. The staff speaks a little English, is very attentive and tries its best to make your dinner as enjoyable as possible. Would definitively come back next... More

Raphael welcomes you, makes you feel at home and makes recommendations that are worth to follow. Try his risoto with sea fruit! It is the best ever. And his spagetti vongole is delicious! Will come back

Small cosy restaurant with fresh fish, sea food and flawless vitello (veal). Take your time and let the owner compose the perfect lunch for you. We chose our food (veal) but observed the other tables where they went with the flow. My mouth watered at the little friture followed by pasta and fish followed by mussels and rice and ...and...

We stayed in Porto Santo Stefano, on our last night of a four week vacation, in order to be reasonably near the airport at Rome. We went to Lo Sfizio, based on reviews in Tripadvisor, and we were not disappointed. In fact everything exceeded our expectations. We stopped in in the afternoon for a pizza but the restaurant was closed;... More

it is actually the first time I am a bit disappointed with the place that has 4,5 stars on trip advisor. I have ordered a dinner menu for 25 euros. antipasto was very good, primo was good but the sea food "grilled" was supposed to be fresh as the waiter assured. it was not. it was frozen stuff. so 3...

I have been already there 20 years ago, it was a pleasure to see that the restaurant is still run by the same owner, and with the same passion to details. We went for dinner, and surprisingly the owner was remembering me after such long time, we ordered only dished recommended by him, and he didn't disappointed us, all was... More
