“Simply OUTSTANDING. Or: out of this planet!”
This was the last of the 4 restaurants we dined at in Terracina, and in fact was the last place we visited during our Italian holiday (Rome + Terracina).
And it left us speechless. Whatever criterion you devise, I'll bet this place gets the top score. Food quality left far behinf everything else we tried in Italy (including 3 very good restaurants in Rome). Staff professionalism was of the highest level. And it was combined with the sort of caring, warm friendliness and openness we so much treasure. The owner, the chef and the waitress (respect!) all came to talk to us in a broken English-Italian mixture, which we half understood, half pretended, and 100% loved!
The restaurant is rather small, with room for fewer than 25 guests inside and maybe another 20 outside. Our tip: go for the inside sitting. The decor is amazing with a simple but commanding mix of subdued warm grey with a definitive, deep red. Tables and chairs are very comfortable and the whole place is amazingly clean and well maintained.
We recommend outside tables only to those with enough courage to eat in a dark alley. Mind you, Terracina is a small fishing town for most of the year. We were almost contemplating to leave, the first minute we saw the localisation. Man, would we have been wrong!
I recommend the place so much, that I order you to go there even if you have no other business in Terracina, but happen to be in transit between Rome or Naples, or simply going south from Rome by car or train. You'll be rewarded beyond your expectations.
The only downside: the price list. But then again, this sort of experience shouldn't come cheap.
