We got there because the guide book said it was supposed to be the best place in town. What a sham! Didn't serve what we ordered. Ravioli came with meat sauce even though the menu didn't say. Pasta with asparagus and truffle came with shrimp and without truffle. Pasta with mushrooms came without mushrooms but with shrimp again. They seemed... More

Situated near the wall of the old city (follow the blue electric sign ) this lovely restaurant offers an interesting menu. The fish sampler was original and offered some surprising twists. The fish was fresh and cooked in the oven. The tuna a bit on the salty side. We were offered some really good Tuscan red Sangiovese wine well worth... More

This was our third choice since both our favorite Michelin star places in the area were closed. We were a bit disappointed by the fact that it is mainly a seafood restaurant, and being the sailors we are we thought that the only place to eat seafood was our sea-side hometown, but boy were we wrong... We allowed the owner... More

Our villa owner recommended this restaurant on the edge of the old part of Grosseto. Located in cellars down a flight of stairs the restaurant provided a pleasant and relaxed atmosphere for our family meal. The menu leaned towards fish dishes with a few additional meat based plates also available, although the night we visited was "fish only". Not that... More

Following the tripadvisor reviews, we went to Buca di San Lorenzo and had a very nice evening. The entrance looks a little dark at night but the restaurant has quite the ambiance in this restorated old cellar. From the tables to the glasses and plates, everything looked good. The service was friendly, and the food delicious. Had a black pasta... More

This was our first trip to Grosseto and found this by accident. It is in an ancient cellar with great ambience and the service very helpful. They specialise in fish but there is a full menu. We shared the antipasto - seafood influence - and would have that again any time. The other diners all seemed to be locals -Saturday... More
