Great food, authentic italian atlosphere, fanatastic host

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

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

We went to this restaurant due to the very positive comments here on Tripadvisor, and we didn't regret it. The food is excellent, doesn't matter if you decide for pasta, sea food or pizza. The Pizza with buffalo mozzarella, little tomatoes and arugula is awesome! You definitely have to try it! I never ate such a delicious pizza!! And the... More

Always a warm and friendly welcome at Lo Sfizio at any time of year - I remember once arriving around Christmas and finding, it seemed, Porto Santo Stefano closed. Lo Sfizio was open however and full of local people of all ages, as I now know it always is. Good wine and lots of characteristic seafood dishes and pizza, fast... More

Spent around half an hour looking for this restaurant but it was well worth it. From the very first moment we sat down we received exceptional service with the staff going out of their way to explain the dishes. The food was superb with the pasta and vegetable ragout in pesto sauce outstanding. Overall we had a great experience and... More
