A lovely location marred by average food and slow service. It took an hour from when our order was taken until our main course arrived. Except for saying "it happens", the wait staff were total unresponsive to our plight and when the food did arrive it was only average.

Me and mia ragazza had just a perfect dinner at Gli Archi. Great location and atmosphere. They made a mixed seafood antpasti-"platter" that was just superb. As maincourse we had fish (Marmora) cooked in the oven with tomatoes and basil. The fish was a little expensive but we really thougt it was worth the price. The staff was excellent, service... More

We visited Gli Archi for lunch. The told us that they did not do outside service for lunch, we had to sit inside. They even turned on the air condition, wich was very nice with temperature rising to 35 c. Food was very good (stuffed zucchini flowers is worth a try!). Service was good, and with a smile. Decent wine... More

I was at Gli Archi for the first time in 2012 and left with a great memory of their superb tagliolini with moscardini. I returned this year and tagliolini were still fully up to expectations ! The quality of the food definitely compensates not having a sea view, although the setting in a courtyard along the stairs of an alley... More

Having eaten here a year ago, I remembered this as a good restaurant in a nice location in a quite alleyway. Well the location hasn't changed, the food is good but no longer exceptional, but whether due to the recession or pure opportunism they seem to now have more focus on as making as much more out of the less...

. Situated "up the big hill" in the old town of Sperlonga. We had found this restaurant on Trip Advisor and it was well worth the hike up the hill. We arrived about 9.30pm and they were wonderful accommodating our family of 4. Food was wonderful. The citrus anchovies were amazing! Wine, as always in Italy was fabulous and even... More

The ambiance was incredible--we felt like we were part of an Italian movie and our waiter Romano was helpful and fun. He organized for us a variety of antipasti that was incredible. We had smelts that were prepared in a novel but delicious way and the muscles were cooked perfectly--we also had an octopus salad. My entre was the risotto... More

We had used Tripadvisor to seek out possible restaurants while spending some days in Sperlonga. Gli Archi was one result and we were very pleased we managed to visit. It is a climb, of course, to get into the old town but well worth it and although slightly tucked away it is not hard to fine Gli Archi. We sat... More

We found this restaurant down a small street from the square at the top of the old town. Look for the signs pointing down to this. As it was a bit chillier, we sat inside. The restaurant was quiet apart from another couple. The waiter/owner is very professional and a skilled waiter. We had clams and mussels as starter, both... More

We stumbled upon this little family-run restaurant one afternoon while exploring the charming town of Sperlonga. We were hungry and it being a bit out of tourist season, not a whole lot was still open. This little place was and after having lunch there, were glad we had discovered it. What a find! The food was absolutely squisito! They use... More
