From the decoration (simple, a warm welcoming fake fireplace, however featuring many pieces of art of the late artist Il Fagiano - Giovanni Sanjust) to the kindness of the Staff, everything runs well in this friendly place close to the main Aurelia few km before getting to Monte Argentario. After a (truly fresh) fish appetizer, I had the chance to... More

We stopped on our way to Fiumicino. Great discovery. Incredibly tasty pasta dishes and kids friendly. I would love to go back

This is the "in" place of Capalbio. We visited this place last year and we had a good experience so we replicated this year but it was not the same. The food is good but not exceptional and the prices very high. Considering the quality of ingredients available at the local supermarket, which make even a simple dinner at home... More

This is a very good restaurant, easy to find at the localita Selva Nera in the area of Capalbio in Tuscany. At the beginning staff treated us as if it was a major mistake not to have booked a table, but then a very nice lady with long black hair (looked like the owner of the trattoria) arrived and everything...

We simply fell in love with this restaurant. Visited it frequently during our two week stay in the region and never were disappointed. When we first drove by at noon on a closing day it looked deserted and one really struggled to imagine how good this place would be having read the reviews. Nevertheless, once we arrived in the evening... More

Located at a fork of the main roads to Capalbio, this establishment is worth a try. My spagetti alle vongole was wonderful and local white wine was quite good. My wife got a mixte seafood spagetti with scampi squid and fish which she did enjoy a lot. Definitely a good ristaurante.

A great sea food restaurant near Capalbio. The venue is nice, with a veranda where one can enjoy sunsets. The food was very good and copious, though not great, and the wine selection very adequate. The service really shines, making guests very welcome. Over all a great restaurant in beautiful coastal toscany.

We went there with whole family and had dinner outside. We all enjoyed it. Kids took some Gnocchi with gamberetti - they looked and smelled well. I tried a starter of the day, which was a codfish carpaccio with fennel -i never saw that before somewhere else - simply fantastic!! After that a super well cooked, fresh rombo..delicious...if you like... More

Back this year and the quality has not changed. Nice location (indoor and out) nice menù, very good wine selection. The food is not trattoria style, but revamped Tuscan recipes with a touch of creativity: nice result.
