Very popular and busy with locals particularly big parties celebrating. Booking is possible although they didn't seem to write anything down. Staff very good and efficient on a very busy night. We were attracted by their 5 course tasting menu for 28€ inc. wine It was good but possibly not as good as they think it is. Perhaps a little... More

First off - this isn't a terrible restaurant. But as #14 in Viareggio I expected better. We visited here on our first night in town. It took a long time to get the attention of any of the three servers on duty and be seated. There was then a long wait for service. We ordered the house white which was... More

Recommended by our hotel, The Grand Royal, and overall it was a great experience. Service was good, the server answered questions we had about the menu and was polite- in this tourist town that's important, other places we've been ignored despite trying to be friendly. The carpaccio is over the top good (and we try it almost every Italian restaurant... More

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

We were staying at the Grand Hotel Royal and they recommended we try this restaurant, but it was a Saturday night and they were fully booked....... 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
