Hearty italian food

We visited quite a few restaurants whilst in Sperlonga but this one was definitely the best. We had mussels and a salmon carpaccio for starters and squid pasta and langoustine risotto for mains. All the dishes were lovely and the portions are absolutely massive as well so we would recommend just... read more

Peaceful courtyard setting in one of the old parts of Sperlonga, we enjoyed a fine and relaxed, fish and seafood-based meal (although I did sneak in a prosciutto and mozzarella anti-pasti). Great spaghetti con vongole, seafood risotto and a simple pasta pomodoro that my daughter enjoyed. Excellent service too. Lovely to sit in the cool for a couple of hours... More

Rather fancy restaurant in a cozy little yard. Food was very good, both antipasto as well as primi. Service very nice too.

First, if there in summer you need a reservation. Not many tables but beautiful courtyard setting.Simply great sea food. Staff spoke limited English but w/ our limited Italian we got by. You can see the catch of the day and other sea food. We started w/ marinated anchovies (amazing) and then a mixed sea food tray w/ zucchini flowers, stuffed... More

We had expected to eat at our hotel, but its restaurant was closed. Our host took us to this restaurant. We had mussels and a mussel-based appetizer, then orata “catch of the day” which was okay, but plain. Then tiramisu with chocolate/berries.

Almost everything was really good for our last night out of our 10 day trip to Italy, the location, in the little multi-level square, the service, very attentive and the food generally was really good. A little on the expensive side but worth the expense. My only criticism is that, being a meat-lover, I ordered my steak rare and after... More

Its hard to decide which was the better. We had some seasonal vegetables as well they were cooked to perfection. Desert were sumptious.... More

Great seafood and steaks. I had the catch of the day (sea breme) and it was wonderful. Would really recommend it. The service was excellent as well. A bit on the pricy side but you get what you pay for. ☺

It was a very calm restaurant (quiet as it was out of season) which made it nice. Best part was when the food came - my pasta was the best I had ever had! The waiter was very nice and friendly. Review by Gabriel.

We strolled by this place by accident and are eternally greatful we did. They had only two seats left for the night so my wife and I just took the opportunity and crossed our fingers. They had a set menu for the evening consisting of a five course meal including braised veal cheeks and very good local redwine that just... More
