The Restaurant

locally sensitive and creatively inspired

The atmosphere at Gilda’s embraces you in typical Versilian genuine and authentic fashion. Eating at the beach in a charming atmosphere, only a few steps away from the center of Forte Dei Marmi, enjoying a candlelight seafood dinner: this is the magic of Gilda Ristorante, a local and international favorite.
Our ristorante serves an assortment of only the finest seafood, daily caught fish and typical specialties of Versilia. Our chef uses only the freshest seasonal ingredients in order to serve you memorable meal. A wide selection of local and national wines, as well as prestigious champagnes perfectly accompany the menu.
A beautiful decor welcomes our guests: wide spaces – all furnished with natural materials – along with white washed-wood and beautiful fresh flower arrangements create a genuine atmosphere.
The splendid terrace, surrounded by the Mediterranean greenery, provides a fresh shelter even in the warmest summer days. Come for dinner and enjoy a fantastic menu while gazing out at the sea and the elegant beach of spaced out cabanas! Guests of the Beach Club can also enjoy local specialties, cocktails and light meals under the shade of their private cabanas.
The restaurant can easily accommodate inside up to 150 people and in summer, it provides 140 additional seats on the beach. In summer, we are open every day for both lunch and dinner while in winter the closing days are on Thursday evening and Sunday evening. Let yourself be tempted by our wide selection of delicious dishes inspired by the tastes of the Mediterranean and Tuscan cuisine: you are certainly spoilt for choice.
Gilda is available for exclusive events and private parties. During the high season, we highly recommend you book in advance.
