Cool place

Another case for not eating on the front. Walk a couple of streets back and you find restaurants such as Amaro. The decor is really cool, the service is good but most importantly, the food is fantastic. Lovely atmosphere too with everyone sat next to eachother. Would recommend

Went here after finding it on google maps. We hadn't booked but they were very good at squeezing us in. The staff spoke very good English and the service was excellent. Pork steak was fabulous and we booked to go again. Well worth going down the side streets rather than the main strip

Viareggio is a dump of a town, trading on its past glories. The restaurants on the front were uniformly grim, but Amaro was terrific. Really excellent food, almost perfect service. One tip - brace yourself for the portion sizes which are very generous and leave you waist/waste conflicted.

Amongst some questionable beach front restaurants (I.e. tacky, tourist trap and overpriced beach clubs), sits Amaro, a couple of blocks back from the main promenade and a real gem of a restaurant. As Australians, we love our seafood and our steak. I was so impressed that Amaro delivered on both fronts in our meal this evening. We had a traditional... More

Now I'm a meat lover full stop. But when informed that the t bone is a minimum 1kg for 1 person and then the waiter brings it out to show me, it's huge, enough for 2/3 people. Now for 40€ the amount of meat is a fair price for such a chunk of meat, seasoned nice with a pesto sauce,... More

Although the steaks were fantastic it's the starters we'll remember the most. The first night we tried this restaurant we couldn't get in, so glad we made a reservation. The food was great and the service came with a smile. Portion sizes are huge and I'm glad I chose the smallest steak. My husband loved one of the larger ones.... More

It was a wonderful evening with perfect meat. It was fresh, yummy and you could see it before they grilled it.
