Bartolotta Ristorante di Mare Review

Located along the resort's chic shopping promenade, this expensive restaurant specializes in fresh Italian seafood and pasta. It has a full bar and seating on the upper level, as well as a beautiful dining room and patio downstairs. Chef Paul Bartolotta (a James Beard–award winner) has fish such as sea bream and pink snapper flown in thrice-weekly from the best markets in Europe. Pick from the Whole Fish catagory or Crustaceans ($15 or $22 per 100 grams, respectively), and your selection will be filleted, prepared, and plated. There are half a dozen or so simple preparations to choose from, including Sicilian-citrus style (lemon, orange, olive oil) and Palermitana (green olives, tomatoes, capers, white wine). The outdoor cabanas surrounding the lagoon may be reserved, seasonally, for private dining.

    Bartolotta Review

    Terrible experience. Not a romantic ambiance. Waiters were too busy to notice anything we needed salt and couldn't get any. The place smelled like old fish. The Italian was over cheeses and the fish was mediocre. I'd never go back there.

    Bartolotta Review

    My wife and I celebrated our 30th anniversary at Bartolotta along with our best man and his wife. The restaurant and food were wonderful. The service from our waiter was undesirable. He made us feel like we were bothering him by being in the restaurant. He was very hurried and did not like answering questions. The ordering is not normal at this restaurant because you choose a fish from the display. I felt rushed the whole meal. He was not very professional in his presentation or explanation. The meal costs $300 per couple and I would expect to get treated much better. They are lucky that the food is good. A restaurant of this caliber and pricing should have the best service. I will not be going back to this establishment again.

    Read The Menu Very Carefully

    It is a beautiful restaurant with much ambience, great service, all the elegant qualities one could expect. However, we had a very bad experience. Fresh fish is priced by the gram. One section of the menu offered John Dorey. It said $22. We must have missedthe fine print as it turned out to be $22 per gram. Our bill just for the fish for the two of us was $140. Total bill for two glasses of wine, and a salad was $204. We felt that we were taken. Food was good, but $140 for a small fish for two people is too much!
