I have only used this place as a bar. It has a nice terrace right on the edge of the beach. Pleasant staff will bring you drinks at very reasonable prices

Situated right on the beach this is an ideal place to grab a bite after spending time on the beach or cycling along the promenade. Menu choice is sufficient and when the weather is warm and the wind quiet the verandah is a good spot to relax and watch the beach activity. Restaurant was clean. Service was reasonably quick and...

We enjoyed a great seafood lunch at this really lovely, modern restaurant right on the seafront. It is situated in a very attractive part of Grottamare in the pedestrian zone where you can see lovely, old seafront villas. We sat outside even though it was a sunny breezy day in February and they were happy to serve us outside. Service... More

This us a lovely restaurant right by the beach! The lemon and prawn pasta is to die for and a definite favourite dish, the seafood risotto is also a must. And all can be eaten with great wine and a great view!!

We have been visiting this gem of a fish restaurant a couple of times every summer for the last 10 years. The food, wine and service are uniformly excellent and it is a pleasure to enjoy a fresh fish lunch after enjoying the restaurant's private sun-beds on the beach. We started with a seafood salad with bruschetta followed by crispy... More

A favourite restaurant of ours and one we visit all year round. The terrace overlooking the beach and sea is fantastic during sunny days and for romantic dinners. Their signature dish is Maccheroncini Scampi e limone (Scampi in lemon sauce with angel hair pasta) -one of my favorite dishes in the world. Run by lovely brothers, very attentive, they always...
