This restaurant serves very good food but it is very small and it is very hot inside summer time... They have different food menu each day... The service is good the people are very nice... The price is reasonable... They serve good fresh fish they...have sushi too but did not try it... You better try this restaurant if you wanna eat special good food...More

A minimal restaurant. A lucky dinner, starting with a cold bottle of Pecorino served in a perfect sunset. Porto Sant'Elpidio is not a classy beach, but in this very little chalet with a few red clouds overhead, it doesn't feel like in the other disco-like...restaurants and it tastes just true seaside. We had filled anchovies (alici), tuna, shrimp carbonara, pesto, octopus with crispy vegs and potato cream. Classic ingredients, professional preparation, perfumes, textures and always a non trivial, discrete personal touch. Also the desserts are recommendable.More

I had been looking forward to this vist for a while and when we arrived it looked gorgeous. Beautiful views and nicely decorated with a pleasant greeting. The menù at 30 euros seemed to have disappeared to be replaced with an a la carte menu...but I was looking forward to trying the alici I had seen a photo of on the website and my friends had the tuna and the salad of sole, all of which they were reasonably happy with if not raving over it. My alici however were a different story. They were so overcooked the crumbs were deep brown and the three little anchovies were shrivelled to shreds. The primi we all had the carbinara of prawns which although a tiny bit salty was good. Fresh light pasta, tasy prawns and well cooked. Main courses were less successful My husband ana friend had the frittura which was a bit overcooked and garnished with slices of fried potato glistening with oil. No wedge of lemon or any sauce at all so dry. My other friend had the rice salad which she said was fine but I noticed she left some. My sushi was disaster. It was difficult to find the fish and the overwhelming tasty was overcooked rice tasting a bit fishy and the dipping sauce was simply very strong soy sauce which overwhelmed the taste of everything else. Our firends had insisted on treating us otherwise I would have sent it back. I struggled to eat half of it. Puddings were OK pannacotta, creme brulee but not good enough to rescue the meal. The bill came to over 180 euros including two bottles of OK wine. It wasn't good enough by a long way to justify the price. I live in Italy and know fish is always more expensive but you can get better cooking and better value in dozens of places. They need to pull their socks up. I would have been happy to more than this if it had been good but as it was I wouldn't have enjoyed it at half the price.More
