Orsa Maggiore is a must if you spend some time in Forte dei Marmi. Both a beach club and a fine restaurant, it is recommended for a romantic dinner on the beach. Elegant environment with light blue and white colors, fine seaside food and good...More

The place is very nice but unfortunately the owners were so rude, they have no idea of the word hospitality. Overpriced, overrated. Bad. For sure there are better places where to spend a day at the beach or have lunch/dinner.

It's a bit pricey for lunch but in line for dinner . The staff is okay but he food and ambiance make eating here special.

My family and I have been returning to L'orsa Maggiore for some years now, mostly because of its beautiful atmosphere since we have been disappointed before. However, I think this year we have had our last visit. The staff is slow and arrogant, the dishes...More

We stayed at the beach of Orsa Maggiore so decided to also have lunch there. Everything is designed beautifully and it is very clean. The food is good but the portions not too big and quite expensive. The service is OK.

Our experience of this apparently highly-regarded restaurant was of poor service and mediocre food. The location is lovely but of course there are many beach-side places here, so that alone is not enough to choose L'orsa. And it is clearly not cheap. There must be...More
