L'arca is not the best in Follonica but it is "on the water" and that makes it special and the reason we come back every year. I ate really nice mussels, but the pizza's were black at the bottom and they forgot my gamba's. They were also black :-(. The Gewurtstraminer was fine....

The ambiance is way way to historic but then is a bad way! The fish is burned black and on all the plates is a kilo of uncleand salad leaves. The kids had a pizza (their speciality) we finished our mral then the pizza's arrived,.. Said,... Our advice take a picture and then find your self a real restaurant!

Restaurant out on the water with a lovely warm atmosphere and the service was very good. The food was fresh and delicious like a home cooked meal. The quattro formaggi pizza and the seafood zuppa were especially tasty. Enjoy!
