“Unassuming local restaurant, good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

We had lunch here on a Monday when many restaurants were closed. Other customers looked like locals who were on their lunch break. The TV was on but it didn't spoil things for us. The carpaccio of both swordfish and tuna were excellent, lots of choice of pasta dishes. House wine was decent and very inexpensive. Bill came to 60 euros for 3 and we all enjoyed our meals very much.

“Good, but too "canteene"”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

I taste only porcini pasta. Good, tasty, but too fat. There was too much olive oil. I was in Italy, ok, but, too fat anyway.
I like the waiter that could speak english, and was nice, but didn't like the tv.
It is something strange in Italy, only men in restaurants, and they all are watching tv. The TV is too loud, so, too present.
It was a little bit as a canteen, but they seemed have a good menu, with very good thing to eat. I think it even can be expensive if you order fish (the price depends on the weight for some fishes).
Too much canteen to have a good rate.

“Great value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2012

We asked the hotel desk clerk if he would reccomend a restaurant that served local Italian food like the locals eat and he was spot on with L'Antica Marina. Can't be beaten for quamtity, quality and price.Thoroughly enjoyed our meal and will most certainly go back again.
