You will find many excellent places to eat on Ponza Island, however this little gem beats them all when it comes to inherent island style and local cousine. We experienced a romantic yet busy atmosphere. Everyone seems to find themselves a corner here. Some come directly off the beach or some boat adventure, seeing the beauty of the island from the sea. Others have dressed up for a meal for two, families are enjoying a private table in one of the cavelike spaces.Two steps from ancient roman fishing ponds and Frontone Beach, this place once you found it will be a true favourite, and likely you will turn back for more..

Enzo, the owner and energetic creator of the place does not stop for anything, he will make sure the restaurant always serves what the fishermen bring to the harbour early that morning, and will be keeping the bar open late, for those who came for a drink or two! Young, yet experienced and tough, friendly and fiercely dedicated to the art of living on an Island.

Come and see for yourselves, join the locals and the tourists alike returning for a bite and a real pontine experience!

If you are sailing in the Napolitan Islands, do not miss this lovely charming restaurant.
A fixed menu of € 40 for good quality fresh seafood
Romantic dinner under candle lights.
Thanks Sette Costa for the recommendation

Come by boat, or come on foot...but do find this restaurant! Tucked away on the far side of Spiaggia Frontone, the restaurant has little nooks and crannies perfect for private dining, or take a table in the middle for people watching.
Our merry band of friends voted Solo a Vela as having the best alici marinati on the island...and that's saying something!
While the dishes are classic instead of innovative, they are perfectly executed. Try the pasta with fresh anchovies, and the salty fish balls. Relax, enjoy...you are on holiday!

We went there for apero willing stay also for dinner, but we changed our mind right after arrived. Unprofessional service, poor quality cocktails and high prices (100,00 euro for 1 Prosecco bottle!). Many thanks to Mother Nature for the amazing location and it's for sure "exotic" getting this club by boat (there's no road to go there) but nothing more to remember.

You get to the restaurant by boat, a service that they provide, and then you enter the restaurant directly from the water front. It is truly magical and we were lucky enough to sit on one of the 2 tables that has the view of the water and the other side of the island. They offer a set menu and from the starter to the desert there is nothing to complain about. The atmosphere is chilled and romantic at the same time. Definitely an experience not to miss when in Ponza.
