Not sure how this restaurant ranks high on review list. It is very expensive and the quality of the food does not justify the price. My most expensive meal in Italy during my 7 week vacation and definitely the worst restaurant I ate at in Italy during my stay. Went to restaurant with a group of 6 people (all fluent... More

Very good seafood at this restaurant. Rare that Italian restaurants with such good location also serve excellent food. Pricey but value.

I went to the restaurant called Acqua Pazza in Ponza during my stay there in May. For lunch and for dinner. I loved everything so much: the raw seafood, the fish, the pasta and the wine, of course! The chefs and all the staff are lovely and friendly. Really a nice sensorial experience I recommend !

Had dinner during my stay @ Ponza in May 2015 and the food was just great. We had fish and that came very well presented but still with the natural taste tha Mediterranean dishes should have. Everybody was very friendly and also recommended some local places to see. Great place to have a romantic dinner. I ll definitely go back!

I stayed more than one week in Ponza and I discovered by chance this restaurant called Acqua Pazza and his owner Gino Pesce. Really a wonderful surprise! Everything is excellent: the food, the service, the people, their smiles and the location.I had several dinners and lunches there and each time I was pleased to find out the standards were great....

We had a full course meal with a local wine. Every thing was beautifully presented and delicious. This restaurant is a special treat. Considering the quality, we thought the price was reasonable.

This is the most glamorous restaurant in the Island, located in front of the bay and with elegant decoration. The staff is very helpful and attentive. Though the menu is only in Italian, the waiter took the time to translate and explain everything in English. It has excellent traditional food with all the produce from the island. I tried the...

Acqua Pazza is a great place from every corner. The location is beautiful: in the summer they have tables outside and you have your dinner under the stars looking at the beautiful harbor of Ponza. In the colder seasons you sit inside in a small confortable room decorated with elegance where you will have the privilege of stay with a... More

The island's only Michelin star restaurant. Sophisticated but at the same time authentic with local produce. Service a bit formal for a small island but attentive and correct. The overall level of cuisine in Ponza is extremely high but Aqua Pazza is the most interesting.
