Tipical restaurant in a turistic place in front of the sea. Below average, bit expensive, food just correct, not too comfortable, they were not too kind but not rude... A place to eat if you are on a hurry, but for sure there will be better places to go. The best is the views from the terrasse. Mothing to recommend.

Dreadful service and mediocre food. Three of us in our group, and had to ask for glasses for the bottle of water we ordered, we only were given two after repeated asking. Great view of the harbour which I guess pushed the price up.

My wife and I stayed one night in Porto Ercole and we made reservations at this restaurant for our dinner. The food was excellent and very reasonable and we enjoyed our waiter who was very attentive. We would definitely recommend this restaurant, especially for its pizzas.

We stayed in Porto Ercole for 3 nights and ate here on one of them. Managed to get a table outside, despite it being a busy night. Service was a bit slow. Pizza was ok but nothing special, hence we didn't return. Overall the Port doesn't appear to be blessed with quality eating establishments, so there probably isn't a lot... More

This pizzeria is located in the harbour so it was lovely to sit outside and watch the world go by. The food was very average. Pizzas and risotto both ok but nothing special. We did not stay for dessert as everyone around us seemed to be smoking.

Best pizza and delicious pasta and seafood! (A lot of locals who eat dinner there!) Very friendly staff ( italian family business) and the atmosphere is always very nice! Located at the harbour and next to different gelato places. A perfect place for dinner!

On a day trip we stopped here for lunch. Pizza was very very good - we were pleasantly surprised! Yes, it is not fast food, but hey, look where you are! Enjoy the view and be patient - your pizza will be worth the wait!

We first of all chose the buffet option but found it only had half the advertised options. My wife had an acceptable pasta dish. I had an enormous slice of swordfish for only 15 Euros but it was covered in an unnecessary caper sauce. Lovely location.

The food is better than standard of what Porto Ercole has to offer but the wait is terrible. The spaghetti alle vongole has plenty of clams but could be tastier.

Very busy seaside restaurant, but they surprisingly keep the flow going without feeling rushed. We sat outside and enjoyed a beautiful view of the port. We each had the pizza - several of which to choose from! I can honestly say it was THE best I've tasted in Italy. And living in Roma, we've sampled a lot! The crust was... More
