This place has been known as the best takeout/delivery pizza in Tirrenia since I can remember. Even in the winter when Tirrenia is a ghost town, you will see their yellow Delivery Pizza Scooter buzzing around the town serving up Pizze and Calzone year round. I can't say exactly when but I believe they took on the sit down restaurant... More

Now, I didn't expect kobe beef in a place like this, but I have never in my life tasted tougher meat. Most of it was inedible, even to me. The waiter was friendly but inattentive, and seemed like he wanted to be somewhere else. The very loud radio almost succeded in drowning the sound of the heavy traffic from the... More

Dinner was served fast, and I believe it was the best pizza I've tasted yet. The famely agreed. Staff wass friendly and didn't speak englisch, which was an exellent opportunity to practice what ever little italien i could. No problem how ever. Maybe wait till after 20:00 to avoid traffic noice. Do visit!

This is off the beaten track and a little quiter. It's a small place and does fill up. They are happy to change the set menu to be vegetarian. The porccini menu is good just ask for grilled vegetable's and cheese for the antipasto. Worth a try!

Best food, very nice and friendly people (family-run business). You always get perfect recommendation on what to eat and drink and what's best to see in that small town. Being a fan of Italian cuisine I have to say it's the best place already visited in that country and only there... Prices very fair for such a quality. 15eur for... More

first time my pasta and clams was delicious. 2nd time it was dry and miserable. Crab bowties were delicious. Kids' pasta with fresh tomato was yummy.

This was a great surprise. It does not look great but the easy going atmosphere and great food really made it worth it. If you go order fish really the best. If you want a relaxed great meal this is a place to go.

The only restaurant in Tirrenia that we kept coming back to during our stay! Don't be fooled by the menu written in Italian on cardboard, the food here was amazing! Our waitress was brilliant, was so patient explaining what was on the menu and translating everything. Our favourites on the menu were the selection of sea food dishes and the... More
