First impression poor - a young girl on her IPhone at the reception not even acknowledging guests as they arrive. I had to grab someone’s attention to get an English speaking waitress to speak with us, even a basic level of meet and greet English should be a prerequisite I think and good manners. The food order was also labour... More

Great oven thin pizza, spaghetti allo scoglio = small shell seafood. Fantastic dessert = mattonella = kind of ice cream rettangle on a plate with... More

This is a lovely restaurant, I think one of the oldest and best in Lido, authentic italian with very friendly and helpful service, the food was consistently delicious. It serves great pizzas and other italian food. It can get crowded and reservations are recommended, and it can be noisy at times but it adds to the atmosphere. Overall, highly recommended,... More

One of the best restaurants in Lido do Camaiore. We have visited it even two times with three kids: very good pizzas and pastas, a tasty steak. Price-quality is also very good. Friendly and professional service, nobody tries to fool you around or sell the most expensive wine as is the case in some other restaurants. Better to be reserved... More

It's rare that you go into a restaurant and immediately feel at home.. The excellent establishment has managed just that. The food is quite simply excellent. The favours and ingredients top class. The servers are very knowledgable too and are very helpful in navigating the menu. Oh and don't even think of choosing the wine yourself.. The proprietor certainly knows... More

Once again, La Cantina da Bruno didn't disappoint! We went there for dinner twice this trip and everything was fantastic! They made my sister-in-law & brother-in-law's 50th anniversary dinner very special! We can't wait to go back next year!
