We (me,my wife and daughter) stayed at this restaurant because it is recommended as one of the best in the island and we do not care about the price as long as it is justified. The general impression is that the spot is magnificient with a spectacular view of the port:very romantic. The dishes are "ok" but far from a... More

Traditional place overlooking Ponza borbonic harbor (taliking about harbor, watch out if you are coming by boat: most of the harbor is not protected at all from easternly winds!). Good fish dishes and wide selection of wines. Rather pricey, like almost all places of this kind in Ponza

We had the tasting menu which offered the perfect balance between some more classic dishes and some truly sophisticated "creations" (such as a starter involving "potato ice-cream"). The view is great and the service excellent.

Good food, good view, good people. Good everything, just too expensive. Fish is the same everywhere on the island, why pay it double price here ?

On our last evening in beautiful Ponza we decided to splurge on a final scenic dinner. Big mistake. The appetizer of raw Albacore was poorly cut in chunks and included veins that were unappetizing. But that was not the main problem. I ordered the whole baked fish for 35Euro and was looking forward to digging into it right down to... More

A really good meal against a beautiful backdrop. We were fortunate enough to have prime seating on the terrace, watching the sun set and already missing the end of our short trip. The shrimp on cous-cous is a fantastic appetizer. As was the gamberoni in pasta kataifi e maionese di riccio. Incredible dish! We paid a hefty bill but I... More

I travel a lot, I visit many place and many restaurant. I think this is the best Sea Restaurant I've ever seen. Top level chef, top level food, Unbelievable ingredient, best view of the island. They pay attention even on small things like the table, the dishes (hand made and unique example each dishes). If something is cured on small... More

You might have read about fantastic location and atmosphere in most reviews. I just confirm those with full rating. Food is always great, top quality, fantasy and passion in both traditional and new plates. Rich wine list. Cannot say more. It is a bit pricey, but deserves its premium price tag.

What would you expect to eat in your dreams? A perfect dish of fresh seafood? An invented combination of Italian tradition and inovation on the culinary market? Or perhaps go childiish and have two deserts, choosing between all different and mouthwatering ones? Well, whilst in heaven, you choose! This restaurant, situated literally on the rocks of Ponza harbour, with a... More

Apart from the very good starters and a good view of the bay, this restaurant must have had better days. It is pricey, (even with a fish net as a table cover) even for Ponza, but the main dishes are not that good at least by local standards. Everything seemed a little tired and run down - perhaps end of... More
