Good food and friendly servers

Just a short drive from Livorno, where you can find some friendly and helpful staff. Pizza and pasta were both good and prices are reasonable. English speaking servers make it a lot easier for non speaking Americans. I recommend the pear pasta, sounds different, I know, but it was quite delicious.

In Tirennia for an evening meal. Lo Squalo was recommended by a friend. Started with a dozen oysters and Beef Carpaccio. The oysters were a bit smaller than I am used to, but delicious nonetheless. My entrée of Fried Fish was good. The service was excellent also. Thanks for a splendid meal! I highly recommend!

Our waiter had dreadlocks and a cheeky grin but spoke fluent English, French and who knows how many other languages! He went out of his way to find us a local wine that was to our liking, and the Prosecco on our second visit. The food we ordered was given recommendations by him and he was spot on- the seafood...

This place has excellent friendly service and has some of the best quality and presented food. Most of the area does suffer from mosquito's but Lo Squalo, actively uses mosquito repelling candles and it therefore means you can eat in piece. Highly recommend this place!

We eat more times in Lo Squalo during our two week vacation in Tirrenia, and we were delighted every time. Excellent food (some great specialties like Ravioli with whole-nuts, pizza porcini), correct prices, great location and perfect service. Each time we experienced an unbelievable fast service, I don't know how they manage it, because this is not common in most... More

Very good place and delicious sea food. Big portions, with a nice touch. Local fish grilled with vegetables and the entreé assortment are unique. Quite expensive but it compensates. And at the end one of the best tiramissu I have ever had.

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

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... More
