We were actually searching for another restaurant when stumbled over Il Cardellino in Castiglioncello, south of Livorno. On a bright sunny day the terrace was just what we wanted with a wonderful view over the Mediterranean and Castiglioncello. A fresh wind from the sea together with a dry cold Italian white wine was just what we needed. This is a... More

The sea view is nice, the food is ok. The service is incredibly bad. The couple at the next table even left before eating. There are a lot of better restaurants in Castiglioncello to have nice seafood at the sea.
