A little bit crowded but I guess that's what happens when you have the best food in town . Staff speaks English and the place is very clean . My only regret is that I did not knew about this place from the first day I arrived in Viareggio.

Our hotel recommended this restaurant to us, and we are glad they did. We ate here twice during our 9 day holiday. It's not fancy food, but it's cooked well and was very enjoyable. The restaurant is mainly used by locals (that tell's you something) and it's advisable to book otherwise you may not get a table. It was busy... More

It has all the atmosphere and 'buzz' that you should expect in an Italian restaurant - a little off the beaten track. Service, good. food, competent, well presented and satisfying, if not exciting. prices, not outrageous. Wine, the cheapest is quite good!

Ok, a disclaimer. I'm interested in good food and reasonable service. Knowing about portion sizes is only useful if it helps me decide how many courses to have. 'Big portions' is not, by itself, a sign of quality. If you're on the same page, read on. If you just want piles of average tourist food, please skip this review as... More

We waited so long for our menus, then our drinks and then our food, and then another 40 minutes for the bill, I've even lost the will to write the review. The food is good, not any better than the place next door where we ate other night. It's the type of food it's hard to get wrong in this... More

Went to this restaurant on our last night and loved it. Isn't it always the way? Was very busy even at 8pm but they fitted us in. Food and wine were very good and very reasonable. Staff very helpful and pleasant. Would definitely recommend

This restaurant is a block away from the boardwalk. The food was absolutely fantastic as well as the service. They have multiple menu options, we chose the prix fixed menu and it was an excellent choice. The seafood was so fresh and delicious, when we were done we felt like we had eaten for a week. We've already told our... More
