“Good food, but really "easy place"”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

We spent some days in Ponza Island and we had dinner in this "more than easy place". We had some pizzas, some fish appetizers and fish main courses. Pizzas were really good and fish was fresh and very tasty. Honestly speaking service is not the top and I suggest to go there when they open at 19,30 so you can have for sure better attention and enjoy an amazing sunset on Palmarola Island. And if you speak Italian, you can also have a good talk with the nice owner. Bill was ok, even cheap if you consider what they ask you generally in Ponza restaurants. I'd suggest you to go there because food is really nice, but only if you're prepared to have an "easy going" evening. Very important: they don't accept booking, so you have to go there and, if it's full, wait for a table

“Pizza is just the tip of the iceberg.....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

Come for the pizza, be sure to eat the marinated anchovies, and stay for the good time. Local cuisine, local stories, and local characters all in one place. http://bit.ly/191ScBm
