I loved it! We were allowed to eat off regular hours. Staff was nice, prices just right for what we got. And the food... Pasta was served in pans - nice. It was made fresh and ingredients were of good quality. It was a pleasure to look at food and it tasted great. Even my 1,5 and 4 yo children... More

The food was interesting, not banal and tasty, but the waiter, the one who speak English, was completely rude, this fact has marred our impression significantly.

My husband is from Tuscany, and I am accustomed to eating ridiculously well with him every time we make it back to Italy. Osteria del Mare is firmly a cut above - truly excellent - and should not be missed in a trip to the Maremma Toscana region. We had a mix of antipasti, including a panzanella salad with octopus...

Nice place and friendly staff. Didn't make a reservation but the chef was kind enough to find a table for us although the restaurant was full. Especially enjoyed the 4 degustation starter. Fresh raw tuna was delicious as well!

Had dinner here in August. Lovely food, one of the best meals during our holiday in Tuscany. The menu is quite different to the standard Tuscan fare you see in most osterias. The seafood I had was excellent, cooked with skill and of the highest quality. The outdoor terrace is very small, but there is space between the tables, so... More

Went tonight to try something else than the usual pasta and risotto. And we got exactly that - something different. Confused service in the beginning even though we were the first guests for the evening. We ordered mixed appetizers and 3 of the 4 courses were octopus of some sort. No prawns in sight. Interesting to try and very well... More

We have had two meals in there during our stay, lunch and dinner. Have to say, it's probably one of the best seafood restaurants I have been to in Italy. I think last time I was this happy about my seafood was in Japan. The staff at Osterial del Mare Gia were super friendly, as they didn't have an English... More
