This restaurant serves delicious local food. We had some primi and secondi with fresh fish. Everything was tasty, well served with a smile.

The view outside is quite beautiful looking into lush gardens. At night however you may prefer the indoors (less buggy). If you call in the morning, they can good a fish soup for you all... More

Simple traditional family run business, delicious food probably the best we had in Ponza, at great prices and in a beautiful location, you'd be mad to miss it if you came to ponza, and if you don't have a car, just rent a moped and drive here
