Tel: 39 0564 825261's insider take:

High up above the busy sailing and fishing harbor of Porto Ercole is another, more rural world of olive trees and small kitchen gardens. It's here that you'll find this upmarket trattoria, its pretty summer terrace, with views down a green valley to the sea, shaded by a spreading cherry tree and vine pergola. The seafood cuisine is good without pretensions; standout dishes include the croquante tuna steak sprinkled with sesame seeds and Sicilian pistachios and the spaghetti in a delicate hake and tomato sauce. Service is cordial and efficient, and the arcadian bliss is sealed by little touches like homemade bread (focaccia, walnut) and sorbets (green apple and jasmine, passion fruit). To get there, take the inland road from Porto Santo Stefano to Porto Ercole.

Closed Wednesdays.
