I visited this place after some suggestions from local people. Unfortunately I think that it is an overestimated restaurant. I ordered a grilled tuna with vegetable, a tiramisu and a Limoncello. The service was not friendly and slow, the food was just sufficient. Definitely I would not suggest it for a special dinner.

Nice restaurant, always packed when we we walked by, recommended by our hotel (Hotel Katy) which is just around the corner. It is located back one block from the promenade. We had the vino de la casa (red ) perfectly drinkable, as it is almost everywhere in Viareggio. Room was very nice, on the night we were there, they had... More

Decent food and not friendly waiters, it seems like children are not welcome even though they say so. We where very disappointed by this overpriced meal.

Food was ok, don't know if this was an italian thing but the fried prawns did not have poo tail removed... We had eaten a lot when we realised. Service was pretty bad, with the girl out front looking very stressed at finding tables for people even thought there was ample table free. She was the only one that had... More

But we went on spec and they gave us a lovely table outside. Starter portions are huge - had carpaccio with Parmesan and rocket to share it was delicious and more than enough for... More

Italian's like to visit this very good restaurant and try the regional cuisine of Viareggio, most fresh fish and seafood and this is excellent here; you will visit again and again this restaurant.

This is literally 5 mins walk away from Hotel Katy. It's always busy so either turn up about eight or book, The service was great, the food delicious. We shared four dishes antipasto de terre, mushroom tagliatelle, then fristo misto (fried fish) and fried meat. The fried platters were huge, we couldn't finish them. So in hindsight, we should have... More

The first time we tried to eat there it was full. There were lots of Italians eating there, which we thought was a good sign. The food is rustic and good.

this restaurant was three minutes from our hotel and well worth every step.it is rated No11on T/A in viareggio and 1-10 must be special. The service was very good, and the house wine (red and white) very nice. it is worth noting that the portions are very generous and it is advisable to share a starter. it has a predominantly...

We have been eating at Antica Locanda Da Luca for the last three visits to Viareggio and the traditional food is wonderful and very reasonably priced. My son and I love the black pasta with seafood (pasta neri alla trabaccolara). The staff are friendly and a the end of the meal, Luca (the owner/chef) sits down with you and writes... More
