Loved the baby squid with baby fish and the fresh oysters we had! Ive never been sich big oysters in my life. Unfortunately the risotto was too salty for me which spoiled my appetite for the second main course. It's on the pricey side but mind you, only locals mostly eat here. Great service too! Would recommend if you're looking... More

the place is not up to the food served, which - beleive me - together with the wine list are tops. Dont forget to drink- at the end of the meal- the local " punch", an espresso coffee with hot rhum and anisette addings to it.

The service was lacking in the half empty dining room on this Sunday afternoon. Despite his sharp, charming quips the server did not give us recommendations or correctly take all our orders, besides his long initial absence. The prices and the awards had us expecting a wonderful experience. The pasta courses were both lackluster. The paccheri with the triglie were... More

...(i.e. not an "osteria"!) Nice seafood restaurant located in the southern district of Livorno (finding parking space in small streets can prove challenging there). This is probably the best place to eat in Livorno with a wide selection of quality seafood dishes, incl. Livornese specialities. Prices are on the high side but in fact quite comparable to the one charged... More

Very nice and confortable place with plenty of room around the tables. We really enjoyed the 3 pieces starter and a huge fresh "Orata" oven cooked that was good for 6 people. A large wine selection allows to have the proper companion to excellent dinner.

Excellent food, nice local wine and fantastic service - the restaurant to visit when in Livorno! We enjoyed the 3 piece starter, the catch of the day and local white wine to follow. Its a place to dine with the locals!

The familiar and unpretentious atmosphere made us feel very welcome early on during the evening. Seemed that everybody knew everybody else! Dishes are high quality and are priced accordingly. People with a taste for great champagne and italian wines will find true treasues in the wine menu. Unfortunately we only had 2 nights in Livorno (but still seriously considered going... More

Oscar is an historic restaurant located in Ardenza, a neighborhood facing the sea in the south of the town. The restaurant is unassuming and hidden away in a residential alley. Parking can be a problem during week ends. It has been known for years for excellent food but being located just in front of my parents house I have seldom... More

Our dishes are shaped on the high quality daily catched fish and are prepared with simple recipes that are adequate to the single product used, trying not to alter the natural taste of it. Our dishes will always be prepared only with seasonal available products. This is our way of thinking.
