Slightly hidden away, with its terrace overlooking a little piazza, Masaniello offers great sea food dishes, well prepared and at very correct prices. The selection of wines is good, and service is attentive.

We didn't know of, or read about this restaurant. 2 of our regular restaurants, plus many others in Gaeta were closed for the season. This seafood restaurant is off the main thoroughfare of Gaeta, and tucked away in a side street. We were lucky to have found it.

I thoroughly enjoyed the squid ink risitto ( can only order for min of 2 persons). The grill calamari was disappointing aswell as the accompanied side dishes as it tasted of burn. (The pan it was prepared in was probably burned) otherwise the experience was pleasant.

We had dinner at this restaurant, I love pasta with seafood and fish in general. The restaurant is in a square, before via Duomo passed a small arch and when the weather is nice you can eat outside. I enjoyed everything but nothing impressed me in particular

The pasta with seafood was very good! The appetizer of mushrooms with mussels was tasty. The shrimp cocktail was shrimp on top of a thick white sauce over lettuce. We enjoyed our meals and dessert. They found an English menu for us which was very helpful.
