“Best STEAK IN TOWN”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

Excellent quality food for good price. Beautiful outdoor garden and lovely interior restaurant. Waiter is so friendly, smiles and is kind and speaks a bit of English too! Excellent antipastis, and many different types about 6. First courses excellent and steak is the best. Highly recommend to foreigners.

“A typical Tuscan Trattoria”
Reviewed August 29, 2012

Il Cantuccio is a trattoria ( small restaurant) located on a small square at the heart of Orbetello. I have eaten there several times over the years and find it to be good value in terms of earthy Tuscan cuisine. The houses alongside the square are covered in vine and flowers, which makes for a pleasant atmosphere on summer nights , especially when a soft breeze from the nearby shores is there...

Tuscan cuisine, i.e. appetizers ( try the potatoes with gorgonzola cheese!) , homemade pasta , often with fresh fish ( it varies, so better ask the waiter what the day s special is ) , and, of course, the famous Fiorentina ( T- bone steak ) or oven- baked fish dishes.

The dessert list is a little poor. The house wine quite delicious. Only flaw, service can be very slow,so...better be patient!! reasonably priced, even though slightly more expensive than other restaurants at Orbetello.

“Nice small fish restaurant with a family feeling”
Reviewed August 16, 2012

We were recommended this restaurant for fish and it was very good. There are not that many seats so pre booking is recommended. The setting is nice though no real view surrounded by normal houses and parked cars. Service is great and attentive. The grilled and deep-fried fish and seafood was simple but cooked to perfection. We were two families with small children which was no problem. Highly recommended!
