Very good local seafood in downtown square of San Felice Circeo. Fresh fish everyday caught by local fisherman. Also has many meat dishes including local lamb. Have the house wine. Very reasonable prices.

Obviously a fish place (don't go there if you are looking for steaks), quite crowded with tables along the porch overlooking the harbor. There are also tables inside, but outside - weather permitting- is better. Nice sea food (pasta alle vongole and risotto alla pescatora)...More

I don't like see food so the only standard not including see things food was steak. It was tough and stringy, defiantly not the best meat quality. At the end I gave it to cats on the street. Will not recommend you this place if...More

This is a favorite after visiting the beach in sabaudia. Take a drive up into the hilltop town of Circeo and have a fabulous dinner overlooking the valley. Grottino serves up some wonderful seafood dishes...the cozze/mussels were amazing and the orata fish was salt crusted...More

This is a great choice if you want to eat at a restaurant after a day at the beach. We ordered mussels, which were exquisite and spaghetti alle vongole, which were also good. The waiter was a little insistent on having us order more food...More
