While in FDM for a couple of days this restaurant was recommended by an Italian friend. We spent an amazing evening at Gilda with exceptionally good seafood and service. Restaurant is located on the beach and a little out of town but worth the trip.

Gilda's is rated 4th in the area by TA. I can somewhat understand it as the setting is beautiful if you get a good table. It seemed, though, people arriving first were all herded to the middle tables. We didn't have reservations, so maybe that was part of the reason for our table assignment.

We've been coming here for over 10 years. Food is always excellent and the location is difficult to beat. And the owners are, when not too busy, always very welcoming. Service very friendly.

Our concierge recommended Gilda Beach Club. We had a cabana for the day and could walk to the Gilda restaurant. Fabulous! Great atmosphere. One our favorites during our trip to Tuscany. Short drive from Lucca.

We visited Restaurante Gilda for dinner at the recommendation of our hotel. We were pleasantly surprised to find this romantic spot with amazing seafood. They also have a quite extensive wine list.

A truly lovely Italian restaurant on the beach just outside main center of Forte dei Marmi. Food was outstandingly fresh and full of flavor. Service is pretty speedy but suited us, some people may feel rushed, I feel it's just efficient.

I went there with my boyfriend and family few nights ago. Beautiful outdoor seating. I requested for a tent on the beach when I made my reservation and we only got a regular beach table further away from the water. Food was good although service was slow. The place was full and the server had a lot of tables to... More

We went to Gilda for dinner. The food was fresh and well prepared. Ricardo the owner was everywhere and gave us good advice to chose the wine. The tuna was delicious and the setting was very romantic sitting on the beach. Happy to return to repeat an enjoyable evening .

Staff were very attentive, which must have been a challenge with our large group of 20. Fabulous local seafood, and great wine selection,
