Worth the walk........

..........from either the old town or the new! This is an unpretentious harbourside Bar Ristorante which provides superb fare at reasonable prices. We did not find it until the latter stages of our holiday, and ran out of time for a third visit. Seafood is a speciality - and it is worth the... read 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.

I bring groups to Sperlonga quite often and I always recommend 'il Porticciolo'. In the summer, except perhaps in August, almost all of the restaurants are closed at lunch up in the historic center -- so it's nice that there is this option (only other option is to go to any of the restaurants owned by the many beach properties)....

On our holiday last year we found this lovely little restaurant, which sits alongside the harbour, and therefore specialises in fish dishes. The food could therefore not be fresher, and when you look into the tiny kitchen you realise that that freshness is combined with individual preparation of each meal. No microwave ovens here! The chef, (who wears a very... More

Everything was super, great views from terrace overlooking marina, delicious food ( calamari alla Lucia in spicy tomato sauce yummi or tuna... More
