From underneath it seemed like a nice place with a beautiful view, and it was, but that was all: the service was poor, phlegmatic and the food was lousy. The real joke was when we, due to heavy rain, ordered a taxi, and the waiter...More

WELCOME TO THE Ristorante - Pizzeria PAPA SISTO Just a few steps away from the enchanting medieval center, one of the most beautiful burgs in Italy, on the slope of a hill and close to a peaceful wood, lies Ristorante Pizzeria Papa Sisto, named after the Pope Sisto V, who was born just in Grottammare in 1521. The old 1970's restored building, with its magnificent terraces overlooking the blue sea, under the shining moon and stars, has a one of a kind position letting you dominate the landscape, with a amazing view over the entire Riviera delle Palme, until you get lost into the Infinity. It's a magic place where semplicity perfectly matches with the vibrant nature around, in front of a stunning and breathless panorama. Alessandro is the owner who has been running the place since year 2004, after a long time experience even abroad. FOOD & PIZZA Our kitchen offers a wide range of fish and meat dishes, carefully selecting seasonal, fresh and high quality products. Our pizza dough is prepared only with local stoneground organic flours in addition to starter, sea salt, water and extra virgin olive oil. After the 3 days of natural leavening, our pizza increases in quality thanks to the wood-fired oven baking. Our philosophy is to bring to the restaurant the same passionate love and care for food we have at home. That's how we try to offer you our best! WEDDINGS & SPECIAL EVENTS Located in a peaceful, suggestive and unique environment, our panoramic dining hall can accommodate up to 100 guests. Its special and enchanting position makes it the ideal place to celebrate weddings, baptisms, communions, confirmations, degrees, anniversaries, birthdays and every other kind of parties in every season. And don't forget our beautiful terraces where you can arrange and enjoy unforgettable fireworks. A very special frame for the day of your dreams. On request, we can also provide vintage cars service, special customized menus, handmade confetti- and place holders in order to make your every wish a reality. SPECIAL ROMANTIC DINNER If you would like to surprise your beloved one with a candle-lit dinner in a stunning location, feeling like suspended between the sky and the sea, reserve your "a thousand and one night" table and you'll be surrounded by a magical atmosphere.
