Possibly my favourite restaurant in Ponza, great food, great service, great location overlooking the harbour. It's a little pricey, but for me it's worth it, there's an extensive wine list, but some wines have eye watering prices, there are also lots of reasonably priced nice wines too.

Book ahead to get the best view. We arrived Tuesday evening and hadn't booked and the best thing we did was book for the following night. Great views over the harbour but limited seating. Everyone, book in advance if you want to eat in a great restaurant. They have a tasting menu (€75) or a la carte. We opted for... More

Very nice setting, came by Tripadvisor reviews. Service seemed fine at start. But food was not perfect, and particularly the waitress missed our order. Then did not follow up. Some of the dinner came half an hour after the others. And then to end it took 45 minutes to pay. Left unhappy!! ( the sommelierxwas great though)

Great food, Great Service, Great Setting. After looking good restaurants up on the Internet, an article in the guardian led us to this place. All I can say is it was perfect. Yes it is slightly expensive but the service and food is completely perfect. If you like seafood and can appreciate a good meal then I would certainly recommend... More

I ate in Acqua Pazza with some friends last year in August.. It was fantastic! Great location, just in front of the sea (Ponza is amazing), fantastic food (I am Italian, so trust me) and finally amazing staff...It's definitely one of the best restaurant I've gone in my life ... I'd suggest CALAMARATA, surely the best one!!! Compliments to all... More

Your not assigned one waiter or waitress. It seems like everyone working in acqua pazza is working together to bring you first class service. Every detail is considered down to the earrings that the waitresses wear. The food is delicious and abundant !

Most excellent stand-out fish restaurant. This place competes with any restaurant in Milan, London or New York. Very sophisticated cuisine.
