Eating at "Il granchio" is a must for me every time I come back to my hometown Terracina. The high quality selection of fish and sea food by Luca combined with the excellent and innovative recipes of Daniela make this place just unique and always worth. That's why last year was voted the best Italian restaurant by the Italian association... More

We decided to go to Il Granchio based on the TA rating and the location (400m from our villa). I can say that it was a right decision but it was not so easy to find a place. There was no signboard, only google maps helped us. Locals know the place - most of visitors were locals. However, the staff... More

I love this place: come back every time I'm in town. Luca knows fish and seafood like anybody else and Daniela is an awesome chef. On top of that, the location is just perfect: you eat on a terrace with the view on the entire bay.

Was very surprised to have such good seafood and unique food presentation. Was served with an array of seafood recommended by the owner that was not on the menu...more like samplers. Highly recommended. Happy eating

a gourmet, fish food like no other on the sea side of Circeo, is not easy to find, not far from the center of Terracina. Place inside and outside with a beautiful view. Fusion cousin with elegance and flavour. Must taste.

Great location, excellent food, impeccable service, lovely atmosphere......I believe all the boxes are ticked for having a superb dinner....I went to "Il Granchio" for the first time with 2 friends..... After 3 days I was there again with my family.....I guess I needed a top "food experience" in order to terminate properly my holidays before heading back to London!!!!!

The restaurant has a nice terrace from where is possible admire a nice panorama. Quality of the fishes is really excellent. Depending of the time is possible to spoil the "gambero gobbo" (unchbacked shrimps). Order them raw...the taste is simply unforgettable! Ask help to the owner Luca for combining the fishes with a rich selections of white wines.

This was the last of the 4 restaurants we dined at in Terracina, and in fact was the last place we visited during our Italian holiday (Rome + Terracina). And it left us speechless. Whatever criterion you devise, I'll bet this place gets the top score. Food quality left far behinf everything else we tried in Italy (including 3 very... More
