Good place to eat

Basic, but tasty food. Don't hesitate to go there. Mostly visited by Italians when we were there. Very friendly staff. No service charge, so you might want to tip.

Menu was wide and varied enjoyed our meal . We had four courses all of which were good. Grappa and coffee were offered by Luca who... More

Fantastic! I would gladly travel from Lucca or from the surrounding area just to eat the marvelous fresh seafood at this restaurant again. This was the best meal that we had on our two week trip to Tuscany. I suggest starting with the 6 plate appetizer for 12 euro. This provides a great chance to taste many different items. I... More

This is one of several restaurants in Viareggio which are among the best I've ever been in, better for me than many which have Michelin stars. Italians pack the place out and there is a buzz in the atmosphere. If you want to try it, be sure and book reasonably in advance, especially at weekends.

Really good food, but place is too busy and staff hasn't time to serve you in a proper. I had a reservation I came on time with a small child... So and they made us wait outside about 30 mins for our reserved table. It was quite late and raining. They didn't ask any sorry about that as well. But... More

Probably the best restaurant in Viareggio, the fresh and delicious food without any fancy stuff. Reasonable price for an Italy and has large portions. Dont forget to reserve the table, it is hard to get in even in the low season.
