Wonderful fish pizza and pasta

Some time a street filled with places to eat can make you feel lost finding a place to eat. After looking at all the great reviews here we decide to try it. The pizza was well cooked in a wood burning over. It was not to thick or too thick but just right. The waiter did ask if we wanted... read more

One of our favorite places to dine in Italy (for many years). The food always comes to the table with an artistic flare and the taste is just as wonderful. It doesn't matter if you want a full meal, a pizza or dessert you will leave with a smile on your face. If you are in the area it is... More

We found this restaurant after reading the reviews on here and it surpassed even their rave reviews. Great food served alongside a great atmosphere. Staff were friendly and helpful. We ended up coming 2 nights in a row as decided it wasn't worth putting up with something when this was by far the best restaurant in the resort

Good food and quality service. Staff are accomodating and speak English. Aside from the wine, the best part is the dessert! Cream puff pastries are absolutely delicious.

We have just come back from 10 nights staying at the Grand Hotel Continental in Tirrenia, we were B&B and chose to eat out at the local restaurants each night, we rarely go to a restaurant twice as we like to try as many as possible, we made an exception for this one though and went 3 times. The place... More

I went to Lo squalo with big expectations for the quality of Pizza. I was disappointed. The place is very noisy, but the service is quite efficient. Not really impressed by the menu. It's in downtown Tirrenia, so you can take a walk after the meal

Lo Squalo is a smaller eating place. We waited 30 minutes for a table on a Tuesday. It was well worth the wait. There was three of us and we all tried a different pizza. Each one was terrific. They have their own beer too. I had the red and it was excellent. While we waited for pizzas, I watched... More

We visited this restaurant in June 2014. A very distinctive restaurant in Livorno area. Everything from pizza to the second course was with excellent taste. We liked everything what we tried there. I believe that pizza there one of the best in Tuscany. The owner and the stuff are very efficient and polite. Very reasonable prices for the quality of... More

On my recent trip to Italy we had spent the day in Pisa and were looking for a place to eat dinner We asked a few locals and they recommended Lo Squalo..........they said it was small and behind the gas pumps at the service station.............which would throw most people off. Do not let that bother you.....go and eat here. This... More

Our cousins (who live in town) first started taking us here years ago. We visit annually, and now never miss a summer eating here. Why would we? The food here is outstanding and represents the best Italy has to offer. And believe me, I'm not talking spaghetti and meatballs. Tirrenia is a fabulous little beach town in Tuscany, not Campania,...
