Finding this restaurant was definitely one of the highlights of our trip to Tuscany. The staff were exceptionally friendly and always went above and beyond to ensure we were enjoying our evening. A special mention to Francesca who was our waitress both times we visited and always welcomed us with a smile. The dumplings (gnocchi) with langoustine were particularly lovely, however you can't go far wrong with any of the fresh fish here which was all delicious. I cannot recommend this restaurant enough from the fresh delicious food to the lovely welcoming staff - thank you!

Had probably the best pasta with clams and mussels I've eaten ! Very unassuming restaurant but buzzing with locals of all ages. Authentic Italian food - seafood is their speciality. Service was very attentive , did not have to wait for meals and prices were so so reasonable.

Hot summer evening sat outside and enjoyed a great meal and atmosphere. We shared a large salad and had a pizza and spaghetti alla vongole. Both great. We didn't realise that the restaurant had such a good reputation for seafood. The table next to us (about 10 people) must have consumed half the landed catch that day!! We enjoyed an inexpensive meal that was even cheaper as we got 20% discount for booking online via trip advisor

My Italian husband had a craving for "fritto" - a plate of fried fish or seafood, so we reserved a table through The Fork. We started off with the "Antipastone di mare" - a plate big enough for two composed of several hors-d'oeuvres based on fish or seafood, including a small portion of steamed mussels. We then ordered two portions of the seafood fritto: deep-fried morsels of squid and prawns. Generous and not greasy at all. We ordered a glass of White Sauvignon to start and continued with a good Syrah from Cortona, which complimented very well the dark chocolate fudge-like dessert we shared. Service is attentive and efficient.

I had fantastic nights celebrating birthdays or having just a normal dinner with my friends in this special place! The restaurant is very clean and warm with the table roomy. I also love the décor!

Never had a bad meal there yet in all the time been going, lovely menu with great care taken in the cooking and presentation! Reasonable prices with very large and tasty portions.

Staff are wonderful, very attentive, friendly, polite and meets all of anyone's requests. Nothing is too much for them.

From fine wine to mouth melting and delicious food, this place offers even more with the hospitality of the waitresses and the owner and Chef Stefano Caponi. He offers a truly fantastic meal!

Thank you Stefano! Can't wait to come back soon!
