I have no words! It's beyond our expectation. It's one of a very few restaurant capable of such quality and we have eaten seafoods all over Italy. The seafood was super fresh it melted in the mouth, cooked to perfection, paired with good wine and...you get to enjoy all of that on the beach. The restaurant is truly waterfront so it gives the atmosphere into an already spectacular meal. We also love the service, super nice people. We will come back!More

This is the sort of place that you will remember in years to come and become a benchmark for other restaurants. Local fresh food and family owned with clear pride and care. I came with a number of friends - mostly from all over Italy...and what a night we had. The food was already chosen and planned and it was fantastic. Seafood on its own, with pasta (orecchi) and some lightly fried in the lightest of batter. Little sardinella on a little grill and fresh salad. White wine came in jugs and was either still or frizzante. Followed with a simple sorbetto and coffee and limoncello and a liquorice liqueur. Then a local chap got his guitar out and so did about 4 others and just played and sang all night. A lovely night to remember. Molto grazie.More

We went to the Gambero Pazzo to celebrate a birthday and most of our food was predictably fish and seafood. We ordered a variety of starters - a tartare of tuna and prawns, plus a mix of cold and hot starters. The cold starters were...really pretty went down really well. The tartare duo had three sauces accompanying, a green sauce (working really well), a passion fruit one (less well, but still good), and a sort of strawberry compote, which I thought was overpowering the fish. The hot starter was a fry-up mixture of seafood, lovely but not very varied (the season might have something to do with it). Between starter and main a little soup of smooth-hound was served, and I thought very interesting, though not all liked it. I then received my 'spiedone', which had 5 different types of fish and seafood on a large skewer - the cuttlefish in particular was very nice and it had none of the typical rubberiness and was instead really soft and tasty. That was really lovely. The others had a mixed grill of several types of fish - hard to go wrong with that. All rinsed wth a nice bottle of white. And, best of all, piada kept coming throughout the meal. We had to ask for a doggy bag the food was so much. Price wise it really was good value, for the amount we ate; the reason I am not giving 5 stars is that, though it was nice to see trying something daring and "pushing the envelope", I thought some of the pairings did not really work well. The location between Riccione and Misano is a bit out of the way and parking was a bit haphazard, but in low season is not a big deal. Being literally on the beach was nice though. Staff was nice and courteous. Recommended!More

Back home a month after a wonderful holiday in Riccione/Misano, once again the highlight of or holiday was our lunches and evenings spent at Gambero Pazzo's restaurant on the Via Torino beach side. We were treated once again with a wonderful array of food to...tempt us and it did. If you are in the area make a point of trying their menu you wont be disappointed. A brief word about the staff, they were excellent with their service and menu recommendations, especially Erica whose patience with us was a credit to her, also a big thanks to Seraphino and Raphaella who made our nights there so enjoyable with her culinary magic in the kitchen. once again a really big thank you......long live the round table Arthur Clulow...More
