“Best seafood we had in all of Italy!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2011

So following our stay in nearby Castello di Montegufoni, we ventured to il Mezzo Marinaio in Baccaiano. It was incredible, elegant seafood restaurant. Afterwards, we traveled to Cinqueterra, and all down the coast of Italy, but were unable to match the quality of food in Il Mezzo -- even when on the coast! The chef prepared an incredible grilled fish for our party, and we just truly enjoyed the experience, though granted, it was an unexpected find, given the small size of Baccaiano. The menu changed every day, but the wine, service and seafood was truly exceptional (of note... the prices are high, but compared to most other seafood restaurants in Italy, it was worth it!)
