Am amazing meal!

This is one of those rare experiences, where every plate in a ten plate tasting menu (which turned out to be more like fourteen) was exceptional. The service is perfect, the wine list beautiful and more than reasonably priced, and the entire evening was a joy to experience.

My husband and I were staying in the Hotel Principe Piemonte during our honeymoon in Viareggio. As a treat, my husband booked us a table in the rooftop hotel and it was amazing. Neither of us are fussy eaters so we went for the tasting menu so that we could try some different dishes and we were certainly not disappointed.... More

Il Piccolo Principe is the fine dining restaurant in Grand Hotel Principe in Viareggio. The restaurant is situated on the roof of the hotel (with roll-up window curtains which could be raised in more clement weather) with a view of the pool and overlooks the Tyrrhenian Sea. Chef Guiseppe Mancino artfully blends the regional produce and oils with very fresh... More

Its worth to go there, excellent restaurant,beautiful view,very good food, excellent atmosphere and location. The service is superb. The terrace was not yet opened and for sure eating on the outside ,on the terrace, must be fantastic. The Chef is very professional and very polite.

Excellent food and service if a little limited menu. Puzzling that its cheaper to buy the same wine by the glass than by the bottle! A little lacking in atmosphere.
