We had the good fortune of dining here mid week, and even with the World Cup playing in the background the atmosphere was wonderful. Such a great, friendly restaurant for a couple who very awkwardly try to speak a few words of Italian (and badly)...More

If you see that this is the best restaurant of Ponza in Trip Advisor's ranking you will certainly imagine it as a very formal restaurant and you will be wrong. It isn't excessively formal and and the waiters, that are the sons of the owner...More

Wonderful food, beautiful view and great staff. Limited English spoken but drawing pictures and the staff going to the kitchen to take pictures to show us the food was half the fun

Lovely service, great food and a beautiful setting. The tuna tartar was among the best I've ever had. Wouldn't miss it when in Ponza

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.
