“Terrible”
Reviewed 16 July 2013

By the time you reach the restaurant you will be too tired to eat! The view from the terrace is wonderful (many restaurants in Ponza have a breath taking view) and the service is average.
The food was below average! The antipasto seemed like it was frozen food! The house wine was pure vinegar!! We ordered the desert and within 10 seconds it was at our table. It too had just came out of the frig! Hopefully not the same one were they keep the antipasto's!
Overall it's not worth the walk up there!

“High up in Ponza, a great restaurant”
Reviewed 31 August 2012

I guess I need to go to the gym more frequently, as by the time we climbed the steps and roads of the steep hill of Ponza I was sweating and out of breath. It was pretty hot. The Trattoria Monte Guardian was worth the toil as the reward was a stunning view, a deliciously prepared menu, and gracious hosts.

We had Spaghetti with Crabmeat, Mussels steamed In a lemony broth, and a large mixed salad that had olives, artichokes, tomatoes, and zucchini. A gorgeous mixture of fresh and, no doubt homegrown ingredients.

We also had the house white wine which is a locally made construction. very good.

Very nice place... viva Ponza!
