“THE BEST SIMPLE ITALIAN FOOD FOR AN AFFORDABLE PRICE”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2011

Don t get afraid by the decor or the location, this place is one of the best we never been in Italy, the food is just amazing, the portions are very generous, the staff is just so nice.
For 25 euros per pax including wine we had a gastronomy s feist, with the highlight of the truffle oil grilled octopuss, it s just dishes after dishes all good in the simplicity... It s really local, you feel like at home, and the staff are just perfect.

A NE PAS MANQUER, LA NOURRITURE, LE SERVICE C EST JUSTE IMPECCABLE....

“Very good local restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2011

What a nice place to go to eat. If you ever go to Livorno, try this place. Do reserve your table, it is almost fully booked each night, but normally your are able to reserve for the next day. Fish dishes are superb.

“simple italian, fantastic, alternativ trattoria”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2011

We went there by recommendation of some italian people, which we asked in a nice small aperitif bar and it was monday- not the easiest day to find an open resaurant. They called for us to ask if they are open- so nice. We never would have found this location by ourselves! The guyes were very very friendly, everyone was tattoed-the cook and the only italian guests. decorated with flags from che guevara and foodball-red plaied tablecloth. Tha food was delitious. Without order anything just let them know that we eat everything we got wonderful bacalou antipasti, musseles with 1liter olive oil- the best in my life! octopus ragout, fish and for dessert lemon granite with wodca. Wine, water and cafè included we payed 40 euro for two. Next time I will stay a day extra to go there for dinner. For my taste is was one of the best experiences in italy.
