A popular spot, especially with tourists for both lunch and dinner. Several tables on the quayside outside the front of the restaurant. Have now had three meals here and frankly all have been disappointing. The food whilst fresh has without been uninspiring and dull. I would have to be exceptionally unlucky to experience this on all occasions. Not all in... More

If you love fresh seafood this is the spot to dine at. The restaurant is owned by 4 brothers, one overseas the kitchen, one does the fishing, the other two operate the restaurant. We had 3 Antipastos. Baccala, polpi salad, Alice. All were simply outstanding. You will have the opportunity to choose your fish from the catch of the day... More

A regular favourite of ours, we eat her 5 / 6 times a year, so long as we can ensure a table outside overlooking the harbour - and subject to the weather we've done that as early as mid-March and as late as November. We drive down here whenever we can from Montepulciano to experience what we refer to as... More

It was a windy blustery sunny day when we had lunch here with the sea splashing over the quays. We had a table outside in the sun overlooking the water. The menu is simple and fresh. We had the octopus salad which was excellent- the shrimp cocktail was less so - rather tasteless. All was redeemed with the main course... More

Il Moletto is just great. Located in the marvelous old port of Porto Santo Stefano, it offers a great view -- for best sea food. Try also the really great Risotto.

We had a table outdoors, the waiter was fast and polite, we had several appetizers , half of portion each, we managed to try different dishes so I liked the salad with octopus most. The toilette is far away and it to get there while it was raining I had to pass by the corridor with no roof so I... More

The location is perfect for a moonlit night. We arrived without a reservation, but they accommodated our 7 guest family, as we agreed to leave before the reserved large table arrived. The food was fresh, as if it was just plucked from the sea, lapping almost at our feet. The location was charming as we eyed the beautiful yachts and... More

All seafood appetizers are great and I have had the seafood mixed apetizer twice and will have it again with... More

My husband and I had lunch here on our last day in Tuscany. This is a great place for a relaxing lunch with great food and a "million dollar" view of the harbor. We ate outside and had great service. I had Fruit da Mar (sp) fish of the sea on pasta in a white sauce. The variety of sea... More
