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,

Great value of very very fresh seafood. Excellent quality of preparation. Good selection of wines - we like here to taste good wine: white - Greppico and red Monile... More

The restaurant extends out on to the beach in the season. This makes for a romantic experience, moonlight above, sand underfoot. It also stretches the staff covering a lot of ground. Several came to our table, none inquiring of our meal with any interest though the food was really very good. The main let down was the waiter who promised... More

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.

Great food, lovely service, super ambiance. Price is ok- not cheap but less than some other place and ultimately I would say it offers value.
