An excellent venue on the harbour front. Very warm and engaging atmosphere with good service and outstanding sea food. In spite of the inside appearing slightly formal , the service was relaxed but efficient. Excellent menu with a variety of choices and most sea food fresh and well prepared. Although no children's menu the staff were very accommodating in a... More

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

One of the few restaurants open on a Monday, surprisingly enjoyable. We were apprehensive at first seeing no locals and having the appearance of a tourist restaurant. Our service turned out to be very good, and similar to other places In the area when we asked for local fish they brought out a tray of fresh catch to choose from.... 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

On our last full day in Italy our driver suggested visiting this town, and recommended this place for lunch. From what our driver told us, it is run by 3 brothers, 2 work in the restaurant and the other is the fisherman that catchings the fresh fish. Sat outdoors in a table facing the water. Excellent view, I ordered the... 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.
