A touch over average

Cannot give 3.5 points. But that would be correct. Clear, straight and rather honest fish place, I visited it twice and come back.

I had not been to this place for over 50 years and it has changed! This well known restaurant offers locally sourced food and has a good reputation but, perhaps due to high expectations, we were somewhat disappointed. The food was good but, with the exception of the spaghetti (no tagliatelli) with ragu given to my 9 yr old son,... More

Average food for high prizes. The service is very good. Housewine is nice, food is fresh and good, but nothing special especially compared to the prices.

nothing special... except for the price! it's hefty if you compare it to what you actually get. the quality is ok... nothing worth going back for... not even filling as the portions are rather small. the staff is helpful and that is about the best that can be said about this place..

We like to return to good restaurants, instead of trying new places all the time. If we had more days in Grado, we would have returned to Toni. Good proper Italian food, mostly fish, and good personal service from the staff. We will revisit next time. Thank you for a good experience.

Our dinner at De Toni was fascinating. The ambiance is historic and handsome, the service warm and alert. Our excellent waiter guided us through the menu and steered us to wonderful wine choices for the dishes we ordered. Our main courses were local fish specialties previously unknown to us: orata w/ "asparagini del mare" [seasonal seaweed] and the classic Grado... More

The ambience and the service was excellent and the food was interesting and tasty. The speciality of the day is fish and the salt encrusted catch of the day was fabulous - to watch our waitress debone and serve it was a treat in itself. The starters are a meal alone so you could get away with having only that.
