Very nice and pleasure atmosphere. The owner is a young gentleman very nice and respectful. Its a little hard to find it because there is no sign of the restaurant but it worth trying and spend your time there. Wonderful views on the Terranian Sea and Forte dei Marmi. Plus its very affordable.

We visited Lobster on 26.July, 2014, by coincidence. Were cordially invited by the restaurant staff, which was very helpful and polite. Got a very nice place on the first floor terrace, with the sea view and lots of fresh air.
The menu card was pretty short and beside local cuisine, included some national Russian dishes.
Our wanted starter (sturgeon) was not available, instead we got kind of "home designed" starter, with red caviar blini and salmon. Nothing special - stills your hunger but that's about it. For a main dish we wanted to get some fresh fish what was not possible - they only have Lobsters, the fish would come out of freezer! Fair enough - the restaurant is "Lobster". We were not after lobster (had in a previous day in La Barca), and took pasta dishes - which were catastrophically over-salted and not eatable. May be bad day of the cook?
So just one point. If you are into this restaurant, ask them to skip salt :)

La recensione è prodiga di riconoscimenti per il cameriere, che vuol offrire sostegno ed è educato, per la terrazza con vista mare e aria fresca. E' pronto a concedere anche che forse si trattava della giornata sbagliata per il cuoco. Poi però lancia una stilettata, con un'accusa inverosimile. Che a fine luglio non ci fosse pesce fresco. Serviamo soprattutto cruditè (scampi, gamberi imperiali, ostriche, tartara di ombrina e di gallinella, carpaccio di tonno). E' una affermazione di cui è facile, leggendo le altre recensioni del periodo, svelare l'assoluta falsità.

I am an old customer of Lobster russian corner, since some years,when I have gone in Forte dei Marmi. We are always greeted by the Russian owner Indrek.
This spring , the restaurant has moved to the pier of Forte dei Marmi., With my friend we had dinner on the terrace with a very impressive view of the sunset. The decor is navy style sailing club, with old black and white photos of the Fortress (Forte dei Marmi) on the walls.. We ate fish, starting with a plate of oysters. My aunt has enjoyed a wonderful lobster "alla catalana". It has been a confirmation, for the quality of foods! I like the restaurant now much more.It s bigger and more space and fantastic seaside view.

This place is very special. The decoration and the size of the restaurant make it feel quite intimate. The food we were served was fresh and brilliantly executed. Some of the dishes I had the pleasure to eat and taste were the blinis, the seafood linguine, the grilled vegetables with fish as well as the mini-crême brulée. Mouth-watering!
The service was also warm and the advice given regarding the choice of wine and food was highly appreciated!! I will return there without a doubt.

The oysters were great! All other courses to big (presentation of the dishes was without feeling! They just dropped the food on the plate, like a child would do)! The waiter was anoying and reason to leave after two bites of our main course!
