“generous, polite and accomodating”
Reviewed May 18, 2013

We had the pleasure of dinning there last night with 12 family members from Gaeta, the service and food was terrific, we had a shared antipasto which we asked the waiter to select for us, even though there was way too much it was delicious, a selection of bruschetta, arancini, croquette and several other style finger foods, local famous Gaeta olives.

For the main course we all selected our own with mist people having chosen pizza, i chose the soute' misto, (seafood), i attached a photo, it was delicious, maybe slightly on the salty side, but non-the-less delicious. the pizzas were also well spoken about.

Followed by a selection of 3 in house made deserts, all traditional local delicacies.

I'm sure we left with as much food as we ate, the size of the serves were a bit over the top, and the antipasto was really large.

We were so graciously served by a young waiter (Giuseppe) that looked after us all night, it turned out that he was a local lad that had studied as a pasty chef and knew the ingredients of every dish we asked about, his patience with our rowdy group was testament to his professionalism. He really helped make the night a great success and very memorable, i'd certainly recommend this place for a group of family / friends, it may not be the place for an intimate dinner for two.

We finished up with complimentary limoncello and coffee, nice touch to finish the night.

Great food, relaxed environment and great, great service.

“We had expected more....”
Reviewed August 6, 2012

We had read a few very positive reviews about Il Nostromo and so our expectations were high, which wasn't the restaurant's fault. We found the food and surroundings to be average and the service a bit impersonal.

“Great food, friendly atmosphere!”
Reviewed October 27, 2009

Been there several times and I like it. Its not about the view. There is none. Its about friendly service and great food. Very traditional Italian style restaurant. The staff is friendly and helpful. Its also a great place for a medium to large group. If you are new to the local area and want a good idea about authentic cuisine in the gulf of Gaeta, this is a great first experience. The staff is great with kids too.
