Great food, deco but incompetent staff!

This place is located in a stunning building, beautiful decoration, fancy atmosphere, beautiful outdoors, the place is worth 5 stars! They don't have AC but fans which is cooler to eat inside than outside on a very hot day in July. Their Wi-Fi does not work, we asked for assistance to our waitress... read more

This restaurant has a great location, friendly staff but need to improve the quality of the food. Their steak was a little over-cooked in the middle and not seared enough on the top.

Would not recommend this restaurant for anyone. We were 8 people, one got pizza the same time when the rest had antipasti. The staff forgot ones maincourse and didn't even care. The food was overcooked and tasteless!

Great restaurant, seafront location - dont forget to look inside as they have a great garden restaurant to the rear, which cant be seen from the promenade

Great location for an aperitivo on the steps of this fantastic old building, which today seems to serve as a bookshop. Small complimentary buffet served alongside any drinks ordered. A charming setting to begin an evening in Viareggio.

If you don't like over cooked lasagna with out almost any minced meat... And a very waiter that felt sorry for us for not liking it, no compensation what so ever.

This review is based on four visits during past 7 years,both,business and leisure. When I did visit this place first time,about 7 years (or a bit more ) ago,it was grandiose - large,open to the sunset at sea,starched white tablecloths,candles,with white clad waiters and great menu. Not much have left of it today.Location is still great (just opposite to hotel... More

The restaurant is in one of the oldest building you can find in Viareggio, right on its promenade and this make you feel you are actually in the right place, helping forget the sometime slack table service (depending who is actually serving you). However, food-wise is ok, stay on the gnocchi to be rewarded but if you are form a... More

I had dinner on a Sunday night in late September. Very quiet, and after sunset, with just a few diners on the inside. I liked the location with the bar and the bookstore, with a lot of activity, but the restaurant has a private area with nice soft lighting. The tall and ancient ceiling and floor tiles are beautiful, and... More
