WONDERFUL reastaurant. The food was just marvelous, with great wine and great service. If we had not stayed in the city of Formia, my family and I definitely would have travelled a long distance only to eat dinner here again. 10/10.

Best in Formia so far. The menu is updated regularly with new specialities from the amazing couple that manage the restaurant. All the food is sourced locally: for example, honey is made by the owner, that is a beekeeper, and a wine expert as well!

This little restaurant is my favorite one in these parts. The staff was caring, knowledgeable, efficient, and patient. I had one baby sleeping the the sheek pillows that lined the bench seating of our table and the other younger running around or crying when sitting....They staff talked to him and gave him extra snacks and a pen and paper to color with. The chef was very humble when praised for his tuna, steak and cake. The tuna felt like it melted once in hit your mouth. Coated in sesame seeds, mint, and salt its is a sumptuous melody of flavors and texture. Each meal comes with a recommended type of salt and each meat has a recommended color that the meat should be. This is one of those places that I would feel comfortable telling the chef to make whatever she/he felt like cooking, knowing it would be amazing. 10/10 stars!!More

We visited this place a quiet Thursday night. It was a very good and authentic experience. Even through the host isn't speaking English we quickly felt that this was the right place to be. The menu is absolutely worth talking about and the owners do...not disappoint you. Friendly. Very good and authentic. And the overall review is... (drum solo) : top of the top!More

We found this place through trip advisor...and booked via the app. On arrival we were welcomed and our table was laid out ready for us. The restaurant was very quiet much like the others we visited during our trip. Our meal was outstanding! Roberto (server,...I think that was his name?!) and Annalisa (chef) were lovely hosts. They didn't speak any English but still made us feel welcome and made every effort (incl. google translate) to help us choose from the menu. We had the octopus salad to start and mains of Tuna steak and beef Steak. All dishes were perfectly cooked and full of exciting flavours. We finished our meal with a Tiramisu which was the best I have ever had!! Definitely this place should be rated more highly than it is. We visited place higher up the list which weren't half as good! GO HERE!More

You must visit this restaurant frequented by the locals if you are near Formia! Food is AMAZING ... of the highest quality. Try the mixed starter ...a treat for the taste buds. All the dishes we tried on our two visits were delicious. The desserts...are to die for. My boyfriend had 2 on our 2nd visit! We sat outdoors. The owner has created a warm, relaxing environment. The waiter was so friendly and helpful...excellent English and he took time with each customer. Do visit. You won't be disappointed. Jackie and Julian, LondonMore

Had 2 dinners and a lunch. The mixed starter di terra is great, pick your wine from the shelf and all food is really tasty and different. Add to all that the music selection, we loved it.

I had a wonderful night out with my mom in a beautiful atmosphere. Annalisa the owner always manages to surprise us by creating unusual dishes but taste excellent in the great Italian tradition.
