We tried to get in on a Saturday night but they were fully booked so we reserved for a Tuesday when it was much quieter and were able to get a nice outside table for seven and very friendly and attentive service. This is a low key place where you go inside to pick your own wine out of the fridge - all decent snd reasonably priced in the 15-25 euro range. We ordered fried shrimp for the kids - very tasty but a bit messy with some of the shells still on. THe swordfish was great - very large portion and the large fish dinner came with quite a large number of prawns, squid, a whole fish and a piece of swordfish and was plenty for 2 but also very messy to eat. They gave us handwipes but we could have really used a finger bowl! Did not have dessert opting instead for the amazing gelato down the street (Rosa) down the street next to Il Sub.

We have been visiting this restaurant every year during Marcialonga in January the last 8 years and it's just getting better and better. They recognise us when we get back, they treat us like family and they ALWAYS serve us the most delicious food you can think of - pasta, beef, risotto, fish, pizza, sallad, vegetables and really great desserts with and without drambui - we really love this restaurant and there is a good reason we get back year after year - in addition to all the great food, the people are so nice and we always feel very welcome - we will for sure be back next year ❤️

I get hungry every time I think about this restaurant! Lo Sfizio was a great discovery for my boyfriend and I. We came to Monte Argentario for a peaceful couple of days in June. We didn't want too fancy but we were looking for a tasty meal, and it didn't disappoint! Do not miss the pesce bruschetta, the mussels soup, and the gnocchi al scampi. Some of the best seafood I ate in Italy. However if you're looking for a fancy restaurant, it is not the place. The owner was lovely and the price were fair. About 50-60 euro to get extra extra full ! I vividly recommend this place ❤️

This is the only restaurant we visited in Porto Santo Stefano, so cannot compare with the many restaurants on the seafront. But it was a very enjoyable experience, with plenty of fish and seafood cooked in a hundred different ways. We went for 2 menus (30 and 40 euros, they include some alcohol as well), and we did not manage to finish them as the portions where very big, yet the food was delicious. The owner who has been there for 26 years came over and we had a chat, he proudly showed us his state of the art oven when I asked a few questions about some of the dishes, and also the "smoked fish" machine, as they served is smoked swordfish that was divine. He also took out the dishes we did not eat from the bill, all with a smile and without us even mentioning it. Talking about great service and food for reasonable prices, worth booking during summer as you will have to wait a long time otherwise, if you manage to get a table. 5 stars all the way.
