Everything is just perfect. Great food. Pizza was amazing. Staff is so helpful and friendly, We asked if they could help us get a taxi back to the hotel. Then the manager and the waitor drove us back home instead, not taking any money for it. Service at its best If you visit Maranello, and want a real restaurant experience,... More

A nice surprise for me after few years! Back to this restaurant with a new Management and see Michele to be the new owner. Had a fantastic dinner with large plates selections and very good wines list of which I choose two from "Franciacorta". Worth to try this restaurant! For me the best sea food restaurant in the area!

The restaurant is absolutely beautiful, but I have had similar food in other restaurants in Italy for a third of the price. The Maitre D was excellent. The waitress I think was new. As I was alone, a bottle of wine would have been too much. I asked for a glass of wine from her and got a note with... More

If your time is important to you... Don't come there. No matter the food quality. It just not justified to wait 1 hour from entrence to first serve course. The sea food is good and fresh. But quality of service is poor. Below poor.

Very good fish, fresh, prepared in tasty plates. Service is excellent, Mr Michele is very kind and polite, with the right "timing". Only suggestion is to leave your coats in the car in order not to get the cooking smell. All the rest is very excellent. Very reccomended for business dinners.

Nothing is too much trouble, with the owners greeting you and sharing a complimentary prossecco. The full menu is explained with that Italian passion and if you are unsure a recommendation is readily made. Specialising in seafood, a selection of fresh produce is available with a substantial wine cellar? The service is faultless and the presentation is first class. The... More

Ristorante William was recommended by a fellow foodie we met near Parma. We stopped in for lunch on our way to visit the Ferrari museum and we were absolutely blown away by the quality of the food and the service. While the decor is pretty 1980s, the quality and freshness of the fish is outstanding. We started with some prosecco... More

Hotel William is run by husband & wife team, Michael & Elaina, they are very friendly, we received a glass of proscecco and some olives on arrival, which was a nice touch, the food is delicious and the atmosphere very nice and relaxing, no hurry! Not too expensive either, would definitely recommend it to anyone who visits Maranello.
