Our hotel recommended this as one of the two best seafood restaurants in town . It is a small deck over the water and sparsely decorated and furnished. The wine list is very mediocre but worst of all we were horrofied when told they had no fish yet here we are on the Mediterranean. We ordered a plate of grilled... More

Within the fairly poor restaurant scene of Porto Ercole, la Pinta is always a safe choice. Great location, fairly rich food offer. With a bit more effort it might get promoted higher: i.e. improve its fresh fish offering (sometime the daily catch available does not really offer any big choice) and reposition the quality of the service (not always "professional").

La Pinta is probably the only restaurant worth going to in the actual town of Porto Ercole, the staff is nice (albeit not particularly fast) and food is excellent. In fact, it surpasses your somewhat typical 'good local restaurant food' by often adding an interesting twist to their recipes. It is also a definite plus that the restaurant is right... More

La Pinta is a small, pleasant, family-run restaurant on the waterfront in Porto Ercole. Their antipasti are particularly varied and delicious. The fish is always fresh and not over-cooked. We happen to have known the family for many years so are possibly prejudiced in their favour but we have never had a bad meal there!

Everything was absolutely perfect and fresh. Unexpectedly well cooked, looked kind of simple from the outside. Seafood from the gulf. Highly recommend! Will come back tomorrow.

Really excellent and true food, especially after a few days in much overtouristic Rome. Fine local artigianale wine as well. May be, Michelin guide worth. Will be back tomorrow.

Unpretentious exterior but superb and very very fresh fish and sea food - all to an absolutely stunning view. Example - seafood pasta 14 euros. Good wine choices too.

Visited late Saturday afternoon still serving food. Quite unusual for Italians. Ordered Fritto misto of the gulf and spaghetti pomodoro. Both delicious freshly cooked. Had local white wine and lemon sorbet . Not expensive nicely done restaurant

This place is 'cute' and if you enjoy frozen fish, you'll love it! We could not eat the seafood salad starter. It was really disgusting....watery, rubbery and no flavor. The selection of seafood pasta was miserable and all of our sauces seemed package or canned. There was no risotto dish offered on the menu, so I asked the waiter and... More
