I was in this restaurant just some days ago, and my experience was not good. I try the fish appetizers but absolutely no very good. Also the second course with grilled fish it is just sufficient.

Very good food and service. Popular place to eat in the center in Formia. Had seafood sautee and pasta with seafood, both were delicious.

Instead of just requesting their daily lunch special, you should try the smoked swordfish with a carpaccio of tuna and salmon which is delicious. Situated on the Mediterranean shoreline, Zio Pesce takes the freshness of its fish seriously, and their daily specials are from whatever the Sea offers up. Don't be put off by the restaurant's size and modesty, and... More

I wish I never stopped at that restaurant. So, just to let you know : in the menu, there's a weird mention under some dishes, written in tiny characters. Those three letters mean the price indicated just as for the others dishes does not stand for the whole dish, but only per 100 gram of it. If you choose it,... More

I was at Zio pesce at the end of July after visiting the marveloud island of Ponza. We found the restourant quite good, especially the mozzarella and the pizza were of good quality and with a relatively low price. Location is central, close to the harbour and the amin street and the personal is rapid and helpful. A good place... More

Spent three days in Formia and ate here twice. 16 euros during the week for three courses of starter, pasta and fish main course. It's plenty food. Wine 10 euros a bottle. Air conditioned inside and some outside seating too. Near the harbour and close to lots of cafés etc and the main shopping area. You won't be disappointed.

Went here three times, on a recommendation from a local bar, and wasn't disappointed once. Compared to other Italian sea restaurants, this place offers an honest and good Italian meal, for a decent price, without haute cuisine pretentions or attempting to rip of tourists. Try to blend in, to the extent possible, and you'll eat your heart out. The tourists... More

We we passing by Formia on our trip to Southern Italy and had lunch in Zio Pesce. Mixed seafood starter was lovely and tasty, the pasta with calamari was delicious, fried calamari was crispy and good and my kids loved the pizza made with fresh mozzarella.
