“Tourists trap”
Reviewed 2 June 2014 via mobile

Very very small portions, quite high prices.
Very long waiting time for a single dish...like an hour.

Moreover, we got so much cold: no room inside and no protections from wind or warmer.

Honeslty, Food was good.

“Good Food and Excellent Service”
Reviewed 18 September 2013

We visited Trattorio Dule on a couple of occasions during our stay in Forte dei Marmi and found the food and service to be excellent.

Expensive meals but we felt it was worth getting out of our hotel where the evening meals were terrible. Forte dei Marmi is an expensive resort so dinner is priced accordingly!

On the first visit we sat outside the restaurant and managed to get the last available table. Atmosphere busy and a bit noisy but our meal was lovely. On the second visit we sat inside and the atmosphere was very pleasant and more intimate. Portion sizes are average but quality is excellent and desserts are equally delicious. We ate fillet steaks with sauces for our main courses and they were cooked to order and were delicious.

“Tourist trap”
Reviewed 11 September 2013

We visited Trattoria Dule on our second night in Forte dei Marmi. The restaurant is situated in the main square and offers plenty of seating outside. The prices are higher than elsewhere, but not the highest we saw. However, the service was very disappointing and had the ‘tourist trap’ feel; it felt that the staff didn’t really care and just wanted to get in as many people as possible. Also, the food was nothing to write home about; the spaghetti ai frutti di mare that my partner had was OK, even though the chef could have put more seafood in, but my sea bass in potato crust was really disappointing – a tiny portion of fish in a very oily crust of thinly sliced potatoes. Overall, would not recommend and would not visit again.

“Overrated, bad service”
Reviewed 18 August 2013 via mobile

We came here as it was pretty central and there were some reviews on TA. Food was okay but service was very poor. Staff generally not bothered and whole service was rushed as they try and pack you in and then get you out. Dessert menu was given to us before we even finished our mains. Food was ok although expensive, much better places around for the same cost. Will be coming back.
