The best seafood dinner

Fresh fish, romantic atmosphere, and extremely kind owners. That was the best dinner of the last few years and I recommend this place to everyone who wants to eat fresh fish in a traditional place of the area.

We went two nights on the trot we liked it so much. The service, the menu, the food, presentation and value for money were all excellent. The car park is though a challenge! The House Special of lobster, prawns, langostines, mussels and clams was fantastic value

We found this restaurant when visiting the nice church in Montenero (10 min from Livorno) and were really impressed. If, like us, you like good quality food and a calm atmosphere with no tourists in shorts, then this is definitely the place worth having lunch or dinner.
