Beside the fishes cooked to perfection we tried this time as a starter the Spaghetti Vongole, which are outstanding. As a main we tried the Frittura Mista (mixed fried seafood and vegetables) which is like the best Japanese tempura with first-class ingredients.

Also interesting is the wine list, which is a book about 5cm thick. Should you be to tired to study all the pages check out the wine knowledge of the waiters - they will recommend you a suitable choice. We tried the local Vermentino Solo Sole from Poggio al Tesoro, a Bolgheri vineyard in the neighbourhood. Reasonably priced wines.

When we asked our hotel (Relais Sant'Elena) where we could have a late lunch near the beach, they recommended La Pineta and managed to get us a table. It was quite tricky to find and - not having read any reviews - we weren't sure what to expect.

On a VERY hot day, our immediate priorities were somewhere cool to sit and a drink. We had both within a few minutes and then turned our attention to the menu. It clearly had to be seafood and everything we ordered was delicious - freshly cooked and simply presented.

This isn't a typical Michelin restaurant but it runs like a well oiled machine and the friendly staff make it very special. The best thing afterwards is to get chairs and a parasol and have a siesta on the beach - perfection!

Another late booking with 8 people for lunch. Have not been able to get in for a while here as it is always full. Lovely to see it updated, classy, decadent 5 star everything and wonderful. Massive wine list with tonnes of treasures all affordable, food seafood based with winners at every turn! Desserts were amazing! This place is hard book, hard to find and actually get to but every person l have ever sent has been 100% blown away!

Restaurant and Lido on the beach, simple but refined. Perfect equipment and professional service but also very nice (the twins are the PR of the room). Great seafood, fresh and high quality products ... a fantastic and original experience without too many "frills"

This restaurant is in an old boatshouse and has a very nice atmosphere. Especially when you have a table close to the windows and it's just about time for sunset it's just phantastic! The food is excellent, service as well and there is a good choice of wines. Prices are on the high side for this part of Italy.
