Osteria del Gran Fritto is the best place where to eat Italian fried fish! The speciality is Gran Fritto di pesce. It is delicious, freshly cooked and crispy. Fried artichokes were a nice addition to the main dish. It is definitively worth living a little space for the dessert! Would definitively go back is visiting the area. Staff is friendly... More

This year, we traveled with a group and ate at Osteria del Gran Fritto, and even though the menu was pre-set, it was delicious! And they were very attentive to people's likes and dislikes. Wonderful view, great staff, great restaurant. We will be back!

I stopped here for lunch and I was quite happy with the food and the service. The restaurant is pretty simple, but the service is fast and very friendly. The outdoor patio is great. I really want to mention the dessert, that were quite spectacular.

Seafood is very well fried, not ruined with lemon juice over the meal. Chips are homemade. Atmosphere is old style, with paintings of Cesenatico in black and white apparently taken during old times. Staff is very kind. A great place if you want fried fish, but not-fried options are also available. Prices are not over the average.

After driving through some fairly dispiriting terrain, we stopped in Cesenatico and walked along the the lovely canal/marina to this restaurant. They have a limited menu, but everything we had was delicious. I was traveling with a colleague who has food allergies, and they were incredibly gracious about finding/adapting something for her. Delicious Romagna wine, a seat by a sunny... More

It was organized from the US. After a couple of email messages we had a reply that included a detailed menu with special recommendations for family members with food allergies. The response was quick and corteous by one of the managers. At our arrival to the restaurant we were greeted with friendlyness and big smiles. During the lunch we were... More
