Il merlo is a delicatessen and restaurant. I haven't eaten in the restaurant, but last new year we ordered a savoury panettone for new years eve dinner. It was amazing. The quality here is excellent. The prices reflect that quality.

This small restaurant is next to Claudio Gastronomia and Enoteca. At the back you are really dining in the enoteca, which gives you the feeling that you are 'in the living room' of the owner.

Sono stato insieme ad amici a Gennaio 2014. Buona qualità del cibo ma non giustifica il prezzo esageratamente elevato. Non ci metterò più piede!!! I have been there with some friends in January 2014. Good food quality but the price was outrageously expensive. I'll never walk in that place!!!

The place is great, I liked the shop in front, the room of wines and the dining area :) There were only a few tables which made the eating experience an intimate one. The service was unique, there was a story for each item on the menu. The waiter... More

I am fortunate to own a holiday home in this area since 2,000 and regularly buy take out from Claudio's, Angelo's deli behind which Il Merlo hides itself. Basically, this is the only place (including Forte Dei Marmi) where you can find a truly delicate Haute Cuisine without the price hype of Forte dei Marmi. The ingredients are the very... More
