Fantastic food

The service here was fast and very friendly! The spaghetti with clams was extremely delicious and the wine choices were fantastic.

Strongly recommend this restaurant. Sea food very fresh and cooked to perfection. Menu doesn't look much compared to other restaurants but quality is far better. Nice and relaxed atmosphere next to the harbour ideal for wearing in after walking along the beech from the museum. 10/10

We went for dinner in early September, booking recommended, as we saw people lined up later. Food was excellent, we tried as a "prima" gnocchetti with clams and cream of zucchini which was delicious. Wine was very reasonable, a good bottle of white priced less than other Sperlonga restaurants. We had the sesame tuna on a bed of eggplant and... More

Pardon the deliberate spelling mistake in the heading, but could not resist it any more than we can resist going to this outwardly modest restaurant which is located harbourside just around the headland from the main square in lower Sperlonga. It is good to be recognised when returning to places abroad, and the warmth of out welcome was only exceeded... More

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

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.

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.
