Arrived today in Anzio in search of a place to live next months. First port of call was Vittorio as it is situated just opposite of our B&B.
Wow, we are hooked!! First we had lunch. A wide range of fresh and raw antipasti was followed by homemade fettuccini with white fish. Really delicious.
Returned again for dinner. To our luck a small table was made available as all tables were reserved.
Again.... Delicioso!!!!! First a whole range of different starters plus oysters followed by langoustine and red snapper!
Cooked by a great chef and all presented by a really friendly staff.
We will be back!!

Thank Klaas v

From the outside this looks a bit like an old London pub. We chose Vittorio's because the recommended Romolo was closed and at the end of the meal we were planning to return the next evening. The next evening turned out to be their reposo so we will never know how delicious the zuppa di pesce is (it sounds promising but needs 24hr advance ordering). Anyway, what we actually had was very pleasant; mixed grilled fish of calamari, mazzancolle, gamberi and langostine (mixed languages there, sorry) and the sublime, creamy, scampi risotto. We ordered Sauvignon but it wasn't available so we just went with the house wine, which turned out to be Banfi and very, very similar anyway so we were happy.
You could spend a serious amount of money at Vittorio's (and no doubt be delighted with what you get) but with canny choices you can also eat and drink well for about €60. It is a bit Nouvelle Cuisine so don't choose it if you're starving or generally have a large appetite; otherwise it's very enjoyable and delicious.

We had a lovely time at Vittorios. Had starter after starter of beautiful fresh seafood, wonderful wine, perfect pasta and grilled fish so fresh it was nearly fished after order. Pricing very fair and the place beautifully decorated with a spectacular view. It's a small but cosy homely environment. Chef Mauro absolutely at the height of his role.
We will definitely visit again and recommend this place to everyone close to Rome or in Anzio.

My wife and I were meeting friends on the Island of Ponza and so we left our car in Anzio and took the ferry over. On our return, we decided to have dinner in Anzio before returning to Rome. We happened upon Vittorio al Porto and the jovial owner welcomed us despite the fact that we weren't dressed awfully well for the occasion. What followed was a splendid experience from start to finish.

The owner recommended a fabulous wine that we had never heard of, despite our familiarity with Italian wines, north and south. It was called Villa Campagnano and comes from the vineyard of Antonio Mazzella on the island of Ischia. It is made from a grape native to Ischia called Biancolella, though Villa Campagnano is the reserve version of this wine. It was delicious--balanced, and just right for a fish dinner.

Next Vittorio asked whether we ate "crudi" (raw bar) and hearing that we did, he proceeded to send out a parade of antipasti that were as good as any I have had. My wife and I are foodies and eat out regularly. The originality of the plates as well as their simple good taste had our mouths watering, wondering what would come out of the kitchen next.

By this time we were thinking that this meal was going to be very expensive, but we settled into it, determined to enjoy every bite. After the extensive antipasti train, Vittorio recommended his tortellone, a single piece of homemade pasta in a glorious red scampi sauce. Though we could have stopped after the antipasti, we took his advice and were glad we did.

When the meal finally ended with Vittorio gifting us with two glasses of limoncello, we grit our teeth, ready for the check. I was blown away when it arrived--a total of €96 for the two of us! We couldn't eat that well in Rome for twice the price. This place was honestly so good that I would drive an hour out of Rome just to go there.
