Great place for drinks

We went there for drinks last night and really enjoyed sitting outside admiring the view. Service was good and the prices very reasonable. Lovely quiet place to watch the world go by. We'll be going back.

We ate here about three times. We found it from TA recommendations, and when we came off a boat trip. It is one of the best places to eat and the dishes we had were excellent. I had the cernia (grouper) in lemon and my husband was completely addicted to the gnocchi with clams. Everything tasted fresh and delicious. Highly... More

We ate here twice. It was easily the best food we ate in Sperlonga. It's simple and fresh and you can only get seafood and fish. We ate scallops, mussels and clams, swordfish and calamari and it was all fabulous. I've been dreaming of it since. This is the magic of italy! Opposite the little marina watching the world go...

We enjoyed a dinner with two adults plus 2 and 4 years old kids. The venue was great having a view to the marina and mountains. The service was OK. The menu selection for the kids was very limited, basically only spaghetti with tomato sauce (unless your kids like seafood). The chosen dishes for the adults were simple but also... More

If we'd found it any earlier we'd have happily eaten here every day… Fabulous scallops and fish, and the pistachio-lemon dressing on the carpaccio of squid was so good I've had to have a go at it myself at home. Lovely atmosphere & wonderful staff.

This restaurant is in a lovely location right beside the marina with a view of the Truilli tower to the left. The food was fantastic, beautiful fresh seafood we enjoyed squid and clams with a nice cold beer! The service was excellent and the chef came out to chat to his customers to ensure they were happy with the food,... More

Have dined here twice, once for lunch and once for dinner and both times we had great fresh seafood. Beautifully located restaurant right on the harbour, shaded by a large tree and umbrellas. If you are a seafood fan I would suggest this is the best restaurant in town. My wife enjoyed her scallops so much she had them again... More

A lovely relaxed lunch with good pasta, the freshest clams, very welcoming staff and a pretty place to sit, facing the port with tables clustered under a large rubber tree.

Ask Mauro what he caught that day and let him surprise you with his superb skills in the kitchen!! This place has a beautiful view of the beach in Sperlonga, excellent spot for a sunset watch.
