“cant believe this is not rated higher”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

we visited this resturant on our last evening of our trip,very busy on a tuesday evening, very rustic away from the Tourist places along the sea front, staff friendly food very good reasonably priced,strange the way the owner sits at your table at the end to add your bill but querky overall a nice place to eat!!

“Unmissable restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013 via mobile

Excellent food, friendly helpful staff, lovely atmosphere and great chef with character :)
We stayed at The Hotel President who's reception staff highly recommended this restaurant only a short walk away. We were not disappointed and chose to eat twice there (dinner and lunch) during our long weekend break. Mostly seafood, the food is excellent but be aware the portions are very generous so visit with an appetite as you won't want to leave a single morsel :)

“Great for Seafood”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

This place was recommended by another local restaurant owner. We ordered their set seafood menu which meant we got a variety of dishes....all done beautifully and the chef really cares and is passionate about cooking good food. We went with Italian friends on our last night as a special treat and it definitely was that.

“typical food of teh region”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

We were recommended by our hotel " Katy"
generally good quality of food , mussels delicious and unforgetable :), dishes not overpriced. We were there few times but each time we could not order a tiramisu- really pity...A key factor is service - at this restaurant service was friendly. The only thing to be improved is english language skills but...

“A must if in Viareggio”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

While visiting Italy I had great food, but this is the only place I still remember the meals. We were two couple, we were staying at Hotel President, it was an easy walk to the restaurant. We had dinner twice here, we tried for a third time but there was not availability. I recommend making reservation, stop by or call. We had the chefs menu, we were full by time we finished the appetizers and there was still the first and second plate and desert. We went with the house wine, excellent choice. What I found enjoyable, the chef/owner comes around before you meal and at the end to give you the bill and ask how everything was. My wife still raves about the seafood. We had no problem with the language, the chef as well as most of the stuff spoke English.
