Elegant, charming outdoor dining

Though slightly pricey, this is a very nice place and very good staff, although a bit formal - set in a lovely little piazza in the historic center of Sperlonga, we enjoyed what we had, except the grilled vegetables, which had a slight after taste as if they'd been sitting in a bowl for a while... read more

We reserved a particular table ahead for a birthday celebration. While I often prefer a sea view in Sperlonga, this intimate romantic setting in an area off the little street was so romantic and perfect. Service was lovely.We started with mussels, which my companion loved, but I found a bit small and bland. I had a fabulous baccala appetizer. Fresh... More

A lovely little gem easily hidden from the heart of the old town. Delicious sea food and well cooked pasta in a lovely quiet setting.

We ordered fish risotto and mussels and the seafood antipasti platter for friends - all were delicious, especially the shrimp mayonnaise. The waiter was the old-school best - careful and considerate and efficient. Lovely desserts to end the meal. The most incredible thing about this restaurant is that it is set in a small piazza that is surrounded by apartment... More

This is our second stay in Sperlonga. While here we looked at many different restaurants and thought that this restaurant looked great. The outdoor dinning area is set in a small piazza a few steps below the main area of Centro Historico. The tables are set far enough apart to allow privacy and avoid the inevitable cigaret smoke from the... More

We went here on the last night of our stay in Sperlogna as we wanted something a little more romantic. It is a little hidden away in a courtyard so quiet and away from the other tourists. The waiting staff are professional and helpful The wine is a little pricier than some of the other bars but very good. The... More

We visited quite a few restaurants whilst in Sperlonga but this one was definitely the best. We had mussels and a salmon carpaccio for starters and squid pasta and langoustine risotto for mains. All the dishes were lovely and the portions are absolutely massive as well so we would recommend just having one of their main dishes. This also might... More

Peaceful courtyard setting in one of the old parts of Sperlonga, we enjoyed a fine and relaxed, fish and seafood-based meal (although I did sneak in a prosciutto and mozzarella anti-pasti). Great spaghetti con vongole, seafood risotto and a simple pasta pomodoro that my daughter enjoyed. Excellent service too. Lovely to sit in the cool for a couple of hours... More

First, if there in summer you need a reservation. Not many tables but beautiful courtyard setting.Simply great sea food. Staff spoke limited English but w/ our limited Italian we got by. You can see the catch of the day and other sea food. We started w/ marinated anchovies (amazing) and then a mixed sea food tray w/ zucchini flowers, stuffed... More
