Certainly one of the very best restaurants in this region. High quality food, specially sea food and fish. Professional and enthusiastic service. Good selection of Italian wines; very nice suroundings and atmosphere.

This restaurant surprised us with every dish - a gourmet journey you will not forget. Also the wines recommend were fantastic and we found the best desert wine we ever had. The service is very friendly and extremely competent and caring to explain background and philosophy of food and beverages ... really a must go!

Took a date and chose the 5 course here to sample and was quite satisfied overall. The food was fresh and tasty, really nice tender branzini cooked in a salt crust, and tasty busara. These are some classic tastes of Adriatic and they do them well. To add a bit of flair they also had some more unique dishes as... More

A nice little restaurant with only a couple of tables, the atmosphere was ok, a couple of unnecessary decorative details on the table, nice music in the background..ok wine list but could be better, great service..but on to the food - while I applaude the efforts of experimenting with different flavors and trying to bring something new to the table,...

The service is very good, the tables are set in a way you have a good privacy when dining. Different types of bread are home made. The food is excellent and the wine selection is very good.

Unless you knew how to find this restaurant - we were recommended it by John Brunton, of The Guardian fame, it would be easy to miss. Through a small door you are greeted in a classic family dining room where local wines are beautifully displayed. The welcome is very friendly and professional. The menu offers very fresh local fish and... More

The amuse bouche followed salted cod with polents and amazing salmon cavair with horseradish cream with fried and sliced Jerusalem artichoke then succulent fish with wine pairing was slightly lessened by the line from the staff that they would have to bring over the owner. It seemed a little pompous. The decoration and space was fine it would take a... More

For almost 45 years now, the Al Bagatto Restaurant has been providing this wonderful city a place to try the best fresh fish around. This has sometimes meant offering an alternative all-meat menu or even closing the restaurant when the quality fish that you know us for, and which distinguishes us, was not available.
