“Great local restaurant right on the harbor....pick your fish just after it was caught!”

This was reccomended by our hotel and I had also pinned as a place to try based on Trip Advisor reviews. If you go to Porto Santo Stefano do not miss this restaurant. The fish is fresh daily. Fishermen deliver their catch daily. When we selected grilled fish from the menu, the waiter brought us four whole fish to choose from. We selected our fish and had it prepared con potate (baked with potatoes). It was so delicious I wish I could eat there every day. Order a half liter of the house vino bianco and you will be in heaven!

Reviewed 15 September 2011

We were recommended this restaurant by a staff member at the Hotel Filipo II. The restaurant is not in a great location (very busy street at the entrance of P. Santo Stefano) but the way they have fixed up the "terrace" make you feel like you are in a cheerful and comfortable garden environment. The food was exceptional! Anything you ordered from seafood to veal is very well prepared and delicious. We ask for a special dish that is not typically found in the seaport town (Vitello Tonnato). We came back 3 days later and enjoyed a fantastic meal. My wife ordered Mezzaluna di Tartufa... it was terrific!
From the owner, Mario, to the cooking staff and the waiting staff, Sirio & Marcella, were all very engaging and professional. Highly recommended!
