If not recommended, we would probably not have eaten there: the restaurant looks a bit old from the outside and the location is not the best. Once you come in, the experience of the service and the food quality are occulting these "negative" points. Fish is extremely fresh, well prepared and tasty and every dish is well presented. Maybe the... More

Went for a seafood lunch with my family while staying at Borgo Etrusco. We was very impressed with the elegance of the place and the good quality of the food and the presentation. Service is great and the staff is very attentive and child friendly. The have a children area at the back...great!

If you like seafood this is certainly a good place. The waiting staff was quite helpful. The fresh fishes were shown at our table, we could choose the one we liked and way of preparation. Once it was cooked it was shown to us, and the waiter removed the skin and bones before serving. It was excellent!

For the past several years we have taken a detour at Follonica en route to the Rome airport to have a wonderful seafood luncheon. The pristine, fresh seafood is complemented by the gentle, caring preparation by the chef. The selections are varied and always perfectly prepared and presented. It is worth the detour.

We ate there because we were sleeping in the hotel Il Puntone Vecchio next to the restaurant. We took the fried seafood as starter who was excellent, the Vermentino wine (Del Toro) was definitively a good combination also for the main. My girlfriend took gnoccheti with lobster, and for me, the spaghettis with langoustine and clams, both were good and... More

The restaurant is very clean, well kept and presented. To make it even better the food is awesome!!! Some of the plates are a bit pricey but portions are abundant. We've been a few times in the last little while and it has yet to prove us wrong. Fish plates are well prepared and garnished to very high levels, the... More
