Location is on the corner of the main road near the marina, road can be very busy but on a warm evening worth sitting outside. Inside is a cellar area which seems really cosy. Food was very fresh and filling, we both had the 3 course menu tasters which gave you a variety of different tastes all very original and... More

Stopped here as we were looking for a restaurant for a business meeting. Sat down, ordered a very reasonably priced Barolo then realised that this was not a typical 'restaurant' but more of a Tapas eatery. As the Barolo had already been presented we decided to try it out and were extremely pleased we did. Food quality was excellent, service... More

Checked out lots of reviews, and found this place to have a good rating and be near my hotel. When i arrived i was seated at a small table outside on the patio. Patio is VERY CLOSE to the main road, traffic noise is loud, but that was not an issue. Very cozy seating inside the place, its sort of... More

We had a lovely meal there just last week. We chose the 3 course tasting menus - very good value and good tasty food. A nice bottle of red for only 10 euros was a steal. Desserts were so so - go for gelato instead. Still, a wise choice and some good music in the background too.

Really interesting and unusual food options including large sample menus. Not typical tourist food. Prices very reasonable. Outside area screened off from road. Heart of old Viareggio. Lots of parking nearby on meter. Very close to Port and Promenade for walking off the meal! Excellent Punto and Grom gelaterias for ice creams in walking distance. Recommended.

Original food at a great price, really amazing plates and combination of food for less than 10€. the "degustazioni" are excellent: big portion and very good combination of ingredients! Call for reservation, typical maritime ambient.
