We had a great dinner based on very traditional Tuscan seafood dishes. Excellent quality. We had Caciucco (seafood soup), paccheri con triglie (seafood maccheroni), and a delicious dessert. The only thing we did not appreciate was the fact that the pasta was probably not homemade. For the rest, five stars.

We have a home in Tuscany for 8 years - and have visited Forte Dei Marmi on many occasions - somehow we have missed this place until now. It was our last day before flying home. I "googled" - "best Venetian steaks" in F-D-M; and found this place and booked a table . What a find. The restaurant is sort... More

Family run business. 47 years. They take pride in their service, quality of food ,and treating you like family. Season is almost over and they are still busy but tells you a lot.

This is one of the favourite restaurants by locals during off season. This place has been around since 1902 and they certainly know what they are doing. Penne Imperialle is the pasta dish to try here, you've never had anything like this. Risotto di Mare is also great.

Why has this restaurant got good reviews - because it's GOOD!!! The staff are attentive - but not in that interfering way they just discretely observe and move to assist you at the appropriate point. Food, well I had seafood and it was up with the best - others had meat which looked equally good and judging by plates (which... More

We were recommended to this restaurant by one of the staff from our hotel. The setting is lovely and restaurant is along the beach and we were greeted well and shown to our table. A glass of Prosecco was immediately poured for us both as well as the menus placed on our table. There is little intimacy at the restaurant... More

We were trying to find some traditional italian restaurant in area. I think we were succesfull. All dishes with seafood were delicious, just one penne was not exactly what we were expecting. I recommend spaghetti with tomato sauce and seafood - hmmm, perfect! Services were perfect, maybe too much. I didnt like when the waiter was walking around our table... More

The restaurant has incredible setting. The staff is amasingly professional and curteous. Every singe dish on the menu is prepared to perfect 10. No misses. This is a place for those who love perfection. We went there every night for ten days. Will miss this place until next time.

This restaurant must be one of the oldest in the area and has a great atmosphere with lots of antique furnishings. The menu is different from other local restaurants, with dishes I've never seen anywhere else. We ordered something for my daughter by mistake and they replaced it free of charge, even though we'd actually eaten the dish for her... More
