Don't miss this local food place.

After parking the car and walked for about 10 mins, all we wanted to do was to get out of Livorno. Not much to see here to be honest but we still decided to give it a try and find a place to eat. The place was packed with locals and we were lucky to get a table. It was... read more

Depends on what you're looking for. I've been to the Cantina several times. The food is good, the price is fair (usually around €20-25); the place is what you'd call "characteristic" but it is very definitely a bit noisy. Lots of local 'colour'. Sometimes you often have to wait for ages for a table or for the food to arrive... More

A noicy crowded lovely place. Excellent food and service. Try Carbonara de Mare and fried baccalao - so tasteful - the best! The wine of the house is more than ok.

We were blown away by the simple but very tasty food that was served. Although packed the waiter took all the time to explain the different dishes and recommended the best seafood we had in Tuscany.

One of the best pastas I had on our one week trip in Tuscany. Laidback atmosphere and very nice staff. Cheap!

We went in this Cantina Senese in our one day trip to Livorno from nearby Pisa where we were staying. The place is very typical and with friendly atmosphere. Excellent seafood and fresh fish (try the "black risotto!"), good wine and really cheap price!

We live abroad, but my wife is from Livorno and each time we visit her family we eat here! Without their carbonara di mare my visit to Livorno is not complete. Remote from any tourist locations, here you get the real Italian seafood.

The food is delicious, freshly made with fresh ingredients; the atmosphere is authentic and informal; no menus on the table, you order based on the choices you are told by the waiters; trust these people, they know how to make you feel at home; the bill at the end is a nice surprise; we paid 60 EUR for the 2...
