“Best Caprese Salad”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2013

I have lived in the Gaeta region for 3 years and this restaurant has the best caprese salad in all of Italy. I have tried the Caprese in Capri, Amalfi coast, Naples, Rome, Florence and Venice and nothing beats Ristoro Arenauta. The service is amazing, the views from the patio are amazing and overall the experience from this family run shop is excellent. You have to act fast because this restaurant closes for the winter and opens up again around Easter weekend.

“Best Caprese in all of Italy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2013

This family run restaurant is off the motorway which one might accidentally pass. This would be the worst mistake ever! Ristoro Arenauta serves many affordable dishes but what we enjoyed most was their Caprese salads and their views overlooking the ocean. Their food is fresh and made daily. They speak and understand some English and are very friendly! They are open from Easter till the end of October. I highly recommend Ristoro Arenauta!

“Best beach lunch between Sperlonga and Gaeta”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2012

Six years ago I visited this place for the first time with my local boyfriend who said that he always stopped here with his friends. I continue to go back every time I am in the area. This delicatessen is right off the road between Sperlonga and Gaeta with a patio covered in grape vines and a breathtaking view of the seaside below. You can order a sandwhich to take with you for the beach or better yet order the tomato salad with fresh buffalo mozzerella to eat on their patio. Like any delicatessen you pay for the food by weight and they have all sorts of sliced meats, fresh bread, olives from gaeta, buffalo mozzarella, arancini that they make themselves, artichokes in olive oil, etc. The food is simple but always fresh and I always leave with a smile on my face. The plates they serve on are plastic (this is not fine dining) but for a lunch on a beach day- perfect.
