In the beautiful town of Gaeta in a tiny gobble stone bus, you’ll find this little gem. The family owned restaurant specializes in baccalà or salted cod. Everything we ordered was absolutely amazing!! Everything on the menu is seafood and fresh is an understatement. The owner is pleasant, friendly and the service excellent. Everything is reasonably priced and my husband and I make a point of going to eat there every time we’re in Gaeta. Try it, you’ll love it!!

What we got was just fried fish for a lot of money I would say. Didn't like it much. Maybe my order wasn't good but that wasn't what I expect from fishspecialitys from wherever that came from.
No pasta on the menu

Expensive for little and tasteless compared to proper restaurants in Gaeta such as Le Salute, La Locondo and Antico Vico.

Il Ritrovo Trattoria was the forth restaurant we tried in Gaeta so we had some to compare with. I won't recommend to go here for seafood - I would much rather go to one of those I've listed above where they have very friendly staff and great food!

At Il Ritrovo Trattoria the waiter recommended the dish of the day (the only one that had no price in the menu). This turned out to be spaghetti with olive oil and three scampi - it tasted close to nothing compared to the pasta with seafood we tried in the other restaurants in Gaeta but the price turned out to be - 14€(!)

As secondi we ordered fried squids (the deep fried rings with lemon). Instead we got grilled squid (the entire squid). When we sent it back, the waiter was irritated and impolite and didn't apologize for the mistake. When we finally got fried squid after a loooong wait - it was five rings and for that they charged 14€uro.

Our daughter (3) wanted plain pasta with butter and nothing else (no cheese, meat or sauce) - and for that they charged 8€uro (to compare - in La Locanda they didn't charge her pasta at all).

In addition to this, they charged 2€ per person (adults and children) in service charge.

In Italy, the waiters are normally very attentive to children and entertain them, smile at them, and talk to them etc. Well, not at this place.

Small charming restaurant with excellent seafood. Their speciality is Baccela' - all we tried was very good. The fried baccelau comes as small chunks in a paper cone. Perfect for kids. The fish capaccio starter was especially delicious. The large grilled seafood platter was also wonderful.

We had the house speciality Bacca 'La which is a type of white fish. We tried it two different ways and it was good. 15. Euros. The restaurant is small and very clean and light. The house white wine was good.
