Good food, nice service, speaking english. The meals are not overly big, however, you can feel the restaurant being rather high end. The place is nice and the atmosphere is quiet. We have enjoyed our evening and the food.

Il Pescatore is overlooking the small golf of Cala Feola. We ate dinner twice during our nine day holiday stay. Both times it was exceptionally good. This is a restaurant that must be tried if you like innovative dishes with excellent fresh ingredients and especially fish. Both times we tried the Octopus on "Polenta", which is not polenta but made... More

If you're staying in the port, take the bus (but it will circle to all the stops on the way home). You come for the view as it's perfectly positioned; the family and staff are also extremely charitable and helpful. We recommend the dentrice (fish) baked with lemon; the pasta with fish, the tasty after dinner drinks, white wine. The... More

Good food. Diversified antipasto. Fresh ingredients and seafood. Good atmosphere, nice landscape to the sea. Friendly and polite staffs. But not so much fancy. Then Acceptable, medium price with that.

Classic place for good fish dishes, above Cala Feola. If you are staying around there fine, otherwise public transportation in Ponza is the usual mess. Meals are fine and service is friendly. View is beautiful. It was acceptable as far as cost was concerned until few years ago, now is in the upper range, to which you have to add... More

I was really surprised by just how beautiful the view was--the restaurant appears to have been modernized and updated and sitting on its porch you feel very special! The spaghetti with fish and tomatoes was delicious (I wish I had ordered it!). The special noodles with seafood were also very good. I ordered the special fish of the day. Fennel... More

It's a tiny family run restaurant right on the beach of Le Forna. It's set in an amazing landscape, reachable only by boat from the nearby beaches or through a path in the reef. The menu is quite simple and the offer of food is limited as everything they have is fresh and can be prepared only if the ingredients are available. The best dish they offer (remarkable) is called "Brivido di pesce" (shiver of fish), which consists in a chevice of mixed fish and spiced with local herbs. Their telephone number is 0771.808752 and it's only open in summer.
