You pay for the location and for wonderful service, but there is better food on the island. Try the seafood carpaccio and the homemade fettuccine.

We have tried the 'top 5' restaurants on Ponza as recommended by Tripadvisor, but this one is the best. And we do travel a lot! The food is great, the menu has enough variety to satisfy a reasonable (!) customer. The house white wine is very good. The location is perfect (abive the water). We did not find a better... More

One of them, David I believe, was especially proficient and made sure everything went smoothly. They even check all boats day and night to make... More

This island has been compared to Capri. Since I have not been there I can only speak of Ponza. The i island is beautiful with crystal blue waters. I was there in off season so not much was open but I stayed at Gennarino a Mare and found the place to be welcoming and the staff very kind to me.... More

The first time I visited is longer ago than I care to remember. Excellent seafood based on local produce, innovative while respecting tradition highlighting the freshness of the fish. Attentive service. Decent wine list

I am sure that this hotel can do better than what we had for dinner. We were in Italy for 14 days and this was my least favorite meal. The place was basically empty..I understand end of the season but this was the 9th of September....Our group of 10 and another table were the only ones dining. The view and... More
