This is an hot spot!!! I got there just by mistake and I was amazed!!! All the food is cooked with love. Taste is perfect and I suggest to sit close to the sea and appreciate the breeze. The white wine Cervaro is a must try I wouldn't think two times to order it again. It was good.

Whenever we visit the Argentario, Porto Ercole, and Porto Santo Stefano, we always stop for a grilled Spigola at Il Moletto. No matter the wait we always seat outside by the water, it is from there that one can appreciate beautiful views of the village top all the way down to the port, from where the ferry for Giglio island...

Very popular spot for lunch. The food was very good and the staff very good although they had one of the orders wrong.

An excellent venue on the harbour front. Very warm and engaging atmosphere with good service and outstanding sea food. In spite of the inside appearing slightly formal , the service was relaxed but efficient. Excellent menu with a variety of choices and most sea food fresh and well prepared. Although no children's menu the staff were very accommodating in a... More

A popular spot, especially with tourists for both lunch and dinner. Several tables on the quayside outside the front of the restaurant. Have now had three meals here and frankly all have been disappointing. The food whilst fresh has without been uninspiring and dull. I would have to be exceptionally unlucky to experience this on all occasions. Not all in... More

If you love fresh seafood this is the spot to dine at. The restaurant is owned by 4 brothers, one overseas the kitchen, one does the fishing, the other two operate the restaurant. We had 3 Antipastos. Baccala, polpi salad, Alice. All were simply outstanding. You will have the opportunity to choose your fish from the catch of the day... More

One of the few restaurants open on a Monday, surprisingly enjoyable. We were apprehensive at first seeing no locals and having the appearance of a tourist restaurant. Our service turned out to be very good, and similar to other places In the area when we asked for local fish they brought out a tray of fresh catch to choose from.... More

A regular favourite of ours, we eat her 5 / 6 times a year, so long as we can ensure a table outside overlooking the harbour - and subject to the weather we've done that as early as mid-March and as late as November. We drive down here whenever we can from Montepulciano to experience what we refer to as... More
