Very helpful staff, great service, and food that follows the rule to leave great things be: a fish fillet cooked in the wood oven, accompanied by vegetables, left for you to season if desired. That's what salt, pepper mill and olive oil on the table are for. So much for the people who rated it poorly in the past months.... More

Didn't have our reservation which was frustrating but found us a table and couldn't fault it. Food, service and ambience fantastic. Restaurant was packed but food was efficiently served and quality was first class, excellent restaurant.

Having had dinner at other places in Forte dei Marmi I must say this one thrashes them all. Good ambiance Good service in all aspects Excellent food - the mussels and the Seabass were perfect plus the wine recommendation was very accurate. Always packed, booked 2 days in advance...good sign already!

Absolutely deserves its rating on Trip Advisor (number 3 in Forte) as offers elegant but accommodating dining experience with exquisite food and relaxing atmosphere. Selection of wines is great and very reasonable priced. We choose a Tuscany one from St. Gimignano and enjoyed it fully. The place was packed so booking is needed.

We always go back here and it has been very good. This time, maybe because we were sat at the (ie outside near the carpark- so when you book ask to be beach side) it was just ok. Food is goos but the staff didnt make you feel particularly cared for, I had to ask 3 times for the bill.... More

It is far away the best we tasted in Italy after several visits we did in different locations. Sea food, octopus salad and deserts. Hmmmmm. Really cannot find tight words to describe. You should come and taste. Waitress was so nice and helpful and also we saw it was full of locals. Highly recommended
