A bit chaotic but very tasty

We rolled up late and the friendly front man told us to come back 20 minutes later. Next time - and there will be a next time - I'd book. Service was a bit slow - slow to bring menus, slow to take orders, slow to bring food. But the main issue I have is just the very arbitrary order... read more

This restaurant was recommended by the staff at Hotel Tirennia (a great little hotel). It is a little out of the way and is frequented mostly by locals. The restaurant is small, about 10 - 15 tables, and is very warm and welcoming. Their specialty is seafood and it was wonderful. The staff was very friendly and attentive and it... More

This small restaurant is three or four blocks back from the beach but well worth finding. The atmosphere is really laid back and the food is excellent value for money. Try the pasta with bolognese sauce, it's delicious, and the fish dishes are great. We ate there three times during our 7 day stay in Viareggio earlier this I month,... More

visited this lovely little place 2weeks ago on recommendation of our B&B hosts and we were not disappointed, we enjoyed a fabulous meal and exquisite shared fish starter consisting of 5 taster dishes which were all delightful, very clever chef! If you want to find a little gem of an Italian fish restaurant off the beaten track this is for... More

Great food, great service, happy atmosphere. This was our second visit to Viareggio, we went twice first time around, and twice again this time. All top notch. I'll be back.

I loved the fact that this was rustic but with friendly service and great value food. The owner was a real star and was really helpful with choosing the food. We were given free dessert wine which was very good and when we ordered Sambucca as an aperatif they trusted us enough to leave the bottle on the table :-)... More

This restaurant had extremely good reviews on tripadvisor and so we chose it. We can honestly say that it completely exceeded our expectations. From the 5 tasting fish starter to the perfectly cooked John Dory it was nothing short of excellent. This is a fish restaurant - don't expect meat! It's tucked away from the main area, but so well...
