“One of the better restaurants in town but coming from a bad lot”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2013 via mobile

Nice seafood. The house appetizers were very tasty. The sea bream was baked under scalloped potatoes with julienned carrots and zucchini. The scampi, bugs and prawns were also good. Tad overcooked and presentation less than desired. Lack of good salads found in this area. The price of glasses of wine too dear.
Of course they have cover charge as well, which brought the bill to nearly £100 without having a starter or desert.

“Excellent food and wines in a warm elegant atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2013

Our hotel (Central Park Versilia) recommended us this restaurant.
We dined here twice in our week at Marina di Pietresanta, last july.
The food is excellent, every course, no matter if it was seafood or meat.
The wines were also great.
The atmosphere is elegant and warm. A little bit colonial style.
A dinner for two with two courses and wine and water costs about 100 Euro. Not cheap but worth every penny.
You have to reserve because this is Marina di Pietresantas most appreciated restaurant.

“Right place to praise yourself”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2013 via mobile

One of the most charming restaurants in Versilia. The veranda misses a sea view but the ambience, a sort of ethinic chic, is very pleasant. My risotto mare was delicious : cooked right, with a right balance of spice and flavour.
My main course was turbot, which is one of my favorite and was also very good.
Don't miss the desserts which are all excellent. My preferred is the warm sfogliatina.
Alex is also an enoteca with an impressive wine list, spanning from champagne to italian wines.
We ordered a bottle of sauvignon from Venica which is my favorite italian pick.
Prices are adequate for the quality and service.
Service is good considering also that waiters have to sneak among tables who are a little crowded.

This is a place which will certainly be in your best restaurants pick list.

The food is absolutely delicious.
Service is very good and the owner speaks English too.
It was so good we even picked stuffs to eat we don't usually like that much, out of curiosity and even that we adored!

“Pricey but worth it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2012

A lovely atmosphere with gorgeous lighting, we sat outside but moved inside when all the tables around us were smoking. This was not a problem for the staff. We were served a few canapes with breads and had a bottle of Prosecco. We chose to share a starter of Monk Fish & Prawn kebab. This was so very fresh, succulent and moorish, wish we hadn't shared it now! They split the starter onto 2 plates for us which was nice. My husband had a rare steak in balsamic vinegar and he said it was one of the best steaks he has ever eaten. I had the lobster ravioli in sage sauce which was delicate and tasty. We asked our waitor to recommend a local red wine which wasn't too expensive and it was a great choice. Finished our meal off with beautiful desserts. Our meal was 140 euro, the most expensive of our entire holiday but we did have 2 bottles of wine and we thought it was well worth the price paid for the quality of food.
