Lovely evening meal for eight. Nice wines and beers and very welcoming considering we hadn't booked. The menu is nearly all fish which is cooked creatively.

This restaurant was busy for a Wednesday in early June. The food was very good and combined with excellent service contributed to a good night out. On this showing can only recommend.

Unfortunately we arrived a little late, around 9:30. The food was good, but by that time they'd run out of some things. Our pici with clams and octopus came instead with house made spaghetti (great) ONE piece of calamari (no octopus), mussels instead of clams and scampi/shrimp to make up for the lack of anything else. Fritto misto was missing... More

This was by far and away the best food that I've ever had in Italy. Maybe I'm exaggerating but if that's the case, not by much. I lived all over the country for three and a half years and recently was there visiting, going out to eat every day three times a day. This was the best meal I had... More

Quick lunch with the girlfriend and gf's dad, I opted for the black rice and seafood. Quick service, but seafood content of the dish was just ok (mussels quite small, one small piece of smoked fish, a couple of squid rings).

Great seafood and a nice location inside the town walls. Most of the staff are friendly and helpful. There was some confusion over our reservation they quickly addressed their error. We've eaten there several times and never had a bad meal.

Old bread, octopus from the freezer (even though the fishers market is within minutes), salad not fresh, badly fried main course, hungry after 3 plates and mediocre service. would definitely not recommend.

We went there after reading tripadvisor with contrasting ideas about the place. The service was up to the job, food more than decent..atmpsphere ok and prices in line with my expectetions. Most likely if u go there when really busy you can be disapponted but my takeaways are positive. Try this one out if you in Talamone.

you can eat typical dishes well served. Fishes are good but even a pizza is not bad at all. It's in a nice location just in the middle of the square
