If you like Fish it's the right place. Fresh fish, good cooked. Only two things we did'nt like: tables are so near one to each other that you don't have your privacy and people is used to scream, not talking! :-)) . But it worths!

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.
