Great food and service. We enjoyed all of the dishes we eat there. The house wine is the best. We went there 3 nights during our stay. You have to go there to eat if your in the area.

We ate in Lo Squalo during our stay in Tirrenia. The menue is typically Italian. However, the way they present was much nicer than in other restaurants in the vicinity. The atmosphere is also very good.

Nice and Quick service. Very good Pizzas and a great tiramisu at the end. The view to the old petrolstation could be better but still has some charm. Worth a try.

We chose a table outside next to the beautiful flowery plants, the highlight was the hummingbirds hovering around the table. Excellent range of fried Seafood however not a huge range of options for people who aren't into seafood. Would definitely return.

We went to Lo Squalo for a special birthday meal and the staff helped us celebrate how we wished. The food was excellent and very well priced. The staff were freindly and efficient. Please go if in the area.

We had the John dory which was very nice. The waiter went to a lot of trouble to debone but servicing fish on a cold plate as Italians do is disappointing The waiter deserves full marks for way he served wine. He first cleaned the top and having opened bottle cleaned the top of the bottle

Excellent food and service. We ate here as a family twice..couldn't fault the staff or food. Seafood, mussels in particular are highly recommended, but all the dishes we had (pasta, pizza, salad) were superb....oh and save room for dessert..you'll regret it if you don't.

Service is fantastic, well spoken and well mannered. Food is very good and selection varies. Fish is always fresh and abundant. Pizza is good and well cooked. Desserts are home made - try the Tiramisu!!!

I recommend the clams and mussels that were quite tasty. The pizza is also very good. Service and house red was also good. Nice atmosphere but no seaside view.
