The best seaside restaurants in Versilia

Our itinerary to discover seaside addresses for a lunch or dinner to remember

By the sea or just a few steps from the sand, the gentle sound of the waves and the salty air tease and tempt you to a lunch or dinner of strictly fresh, local fish.

If you want to discover the best seaside restaurants in Forte dei Marmi and beyond, you can purchase the book A tavola vista mare (At the table with a view of the sea), written by food and wine critics Davide Paolini and Gianni Mercatali, who trace the history and culinary tradition of this iconic place through its must-see addresses of taste.

A tavola vista mare


If, on the other hand, you want to have lunch or dinner inland, HERE you will find our suggestions in Pietrasanta and HERE the restaurants not to be missed in the woods of Tuscany! Prefer to move along the coast? Here are the restaurants not to be missed in Maremma!

Bagno Silvio
Viale Italico - Forte dei Marmi
ph. +39 0584 82878

For over 100 years, Bagno Silvio has been the ideal destination for those in search of tasty fish dishes made with refined, zero-kilometre ingredients. Always run by the Dazzi family who have handed it down from generation to generation, you cannot go to Silvio's without tasting its anchovy, raw fish, spaghetti with clams or the memorable imperial fried fish with a regular change of evo oil.

Bagno Roma Fiumetto - Filippo
Viale Lungomare, 35 (Marina di Pietrasanta LU)
ph. +39 0584 20909

The novelty of summer 2023 is the arrival of Filippo on the beach of Marina di Pietrasanta. After the restaurants in Pietrasanta and Forte dei Marmi, where Filippo Di Bartola shares his vision of elegant cuisine tied to the traditions of Versilia, he now arrives directly by the sea, at Bagno Roma Fiumetto. A fresh, high-quality cuisine with a quick menu consisting of 7 courses: two appetizers, two first courses, two main courses, and a dessert. Perfect for experiencing Filippo's philosophy even by the seaside.

Maitò dal 1960
Viale Achille Franceschi, 29 - Forte dei Marmi
ph. +39 0584 1786241

A corner of paradise on the most exclusive beach of the coast. Located on the waterfront, the restaurant Maitò - completely renovated this year - is a meeting point for Forte lovers. An elegant ambiance with a large interior hall furnished in perfect Mediterranean style. Outside, the tables, amidst dim lights and candles, intertwine among the wooden cabins and the beach, offering unique and unforgettable gastronomic experiences in a romantic and chic atmosphere. Among the must-try dishes are the irresistible meat specialties and the unmissable Pennè alla Maitò.

Bagno Santa Maria
Via Arenile, 9 – Forte dei Marmi
ph. +39 058481177

Historic bathroom in Forte dei Marmi which, after the restyling by the architect Michele Bonan, has meanwhile maintained the charm of the past, offering the perfect place along the coast to eat and have fun in an elegant and sparkling environment. For a lunch with your feet in the sand, you'll be spoiled for choice on the menu, but we advise you not to miss the bavette with clams and the pumpkin gnocchi with scampi.

Bagno Piero
Via Arenile, 1 - Forte dei Marmi
ph. +39 0584 1716223

A real institution. Bagno Piero has been putting care, attention and love towards its customers since the 1930s. For lunch, a menu that reflects tradition, with light and enjoyable dishes even during a long day at the beach. The spaghetti with clams is a must, and the carpaccio options are various.

Bussola Versilia
Viale Roma, 44 - Marina di Pietrasanta (LU)
ph. +39 349 1993837

Bagno La Bussola's restaurant is part of the famous Bussola di Focette opened in 1955 by Sergio Bernardini. What has been and continues to be the temple of music is now also a reference point for beach cuisine, informal but genuine in its products and in the proposal of its dishes. Fish that is always fresh, vegetables from the restaurant's own garden, homemade breads and desserts. Versilian cuisine, in short. The wine and champagne list is important. To choose a table under the curtains or under the traditional canniccio, it is best to rely on the manager Alessandro.

Bagno Alpemare 
Via Arenile, 69
ph. +39 0584 1811042

Bagno Alpemare is one of Versilia's culinary treasures thanks to the Bocelli family, which has completely renovated the historic bathing establishment, transforming it into an elegant oasis for its customers. The restaurant, directed by the new chef Mirko Caldino, offers a menu with a strong visual impact and intense flavour: for example, some traditional Tuscan/Versilian dishes revisited in a contemporary key. In addition, an expert sommelier is available to advise guests on the ideal combination of wines and food.

From a historic family union, on the Forte dei Marmi seafront, there is a restaurant not to be missed, that of Bagno Gilda. Managed for 40 years by Messrs Tabarani and Di Giovanni, it makes cordial family management its winning formula. At the cooker, Chef Sauro Antonioli, with a three-starred background, has revolutionised the cuisine with a thrust of modernity and experimentation.
