Excellent Food & Service

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!

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

Book your table in advance and prepare to enjoy a typical italian experience. Food is just great, the place is warm and cozy and the wines....well, try it yourself!

Friendly place with great food! Our server greeted us at the door and sat us at table despite us not having a reservation. (Definitely reserve though as they had to start turning walk-ins away.) You could tell this place was popular with the locals and visitors alike.

Recommended by the hotel, we loved the place. Off the main road, this place is truly Italian. We were welcomed by this little old lady (who owns the place, alas she didn't speak English, so we were helped by the nicest man ever!) He made excellent recommendations, with our food and wine. We had the Quattro formagio pizza which simply... More

Visited last night on a friends recommendation. Staff were welcoming even with out reservation and with our poor Italian. Food was typical Italian fare but well cooked and served with a smile. Children enjoyed watching the chef make pizza in the front of the house. What made it special was the personal touch of the owner (?), an elderly lady... More

If you love Italian food then this is one of those places that you dream about finding but never can. We were recommended to visit this restaurant by some friends that live in Viareggio, they eat here regularly as do so many local residents so we made a reservation to be sure of a table and it's a good thing...
