I came back here after 3 years and still is great. But this time they have a new chef and she is amazing serving "Spaghetti allo Scoglio" perfectly al dente and with truly fresh fish. The place is incredible authentic and looks like to be in a ship. I surely recommend it.

Excellent pub, and definitely the best in Livorno. Great beer, great whiskey, good music, friendly, clean and tidy, and the best cheesecake I have eaten. Dinner is also very good. If you are in Livorno it's definitely worth a visit if you are looking for a good old pub in Livorno.

Even though the service is amazing, the staff goes above and beyond what is expected. Every visit is better than the visit before. The buffet food is to die for and the cheesecake is the best in Livorno!! You must try it to believe it!! Don't leave without dessert!
