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...

We visit the place every time we are in town. Wonderful host, very relaxed atmosphere, and, most of all, great food, "seppie gratinate" is our favorite dish! Perfect place for a friendly night out.

If you are with friends, ask for a selection of hot and cold appetizers. The pasta is al dente, delicious and tasty and the fish, whatever the type you choose, worths to be... More

If you are in Viareggio, I strongly suggest to try this restaurant. It's quite hidden but at a walk-side distance from the seaside. Please, come and try the Tagliata di Tonno, which is one of the greatest dishes I've ever tried, you will love it. The house wine is good too and the atmosphere is very friendly.

Recommended by our hotel and worth the search of the back streets to find this small gem. The host was welcoming and the food good. Great value for money and the house wine at 8 euro was very drinkable and slipped down very well as did the after diner liquor. The menu centred around fish and pasta but you are... More

Like all seaside places, Viareggio's best restaurants are not on the seafront but hidden in the grid of streets behind. Food here is wonderful don't miss out on the 5 seafood taster starter. The ever smiling host of this place treated us to an impromptu and unrivalled 80's revival set at his"decks" (iPod player with the best 80's selection on... More
