“great view, good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012

Ate in the restaurant (they also have a pizzeria), had fresh pasta, risotto and fish: very fresh, prepared as it should be. Cosy, familiar atmosphere. Nice wines, all very affordable. Parking could be a problem, so don't arrive to late! Book in advance to have a nice table with view on the terrace).

“Amazing view”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2012

We had dinner at pizzeria-restaurant, where we had already been last year. The location is great and the view is amazing and, even if the restaurant is located right on the coast road, parking is rather easy.
Unfortunately the waitress informed us that no fresh fish was available on that day, thus they had used frozen fish. No problem with risotto, which was really good, while fried fish was tough and quite tasteless. Pizza was not that good. One negative note: after having ordered we had to re-ask twice for both pizza and coffee, as these were not served. We waited for about half an hour for pizza and 20 minutes for coffee, but nobody apologized for the delay.

“Vista meravigliosa”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2011

Se venite d´estate resterete estasiati dalla terrazza sulla scogliera, d´inverno cercate di accaparrarvi un tavolo vicino alle vetrate: la vista é mozzafiato! Il cibo é davvero buono, pesce fresco cucinato al momento, delizioso. Il servizio é eccellente, noi ci simo imbattuti in una cameriera dall´accento straniero/livornese davvero simpatica. Il locale é spazioso e si addice anche a grandi pranzi in compagnia.
