The rating is more about the service than the food. They did not have enough staff on the night we visited (Wednesday) as it was reasonably busy but not full. My antipasti arrived at the same time as my wife's main and her patate fritti (chips) arrived later with my main course (they were frozen French fries!). Despite help from... More

Just came back from this restaurant. I must admit I am very pleasantly surprised with the taste quality and price. This ia the best meal I had in Viareggio in 5 days after visiting some very expensive and well known restaurants here. I highly recommend you to try. I gave 5 points for quality and value. Service is good and... More

A little bit crowded but I guess that's what happens when you have the best food in town . Staff speaks English and the place is very clean . My only regret is that I did not knew about this place from the first day I arrived in Viareggio.

Our hotel recommended this restaurant to us, and we are glad they did. We ate here twice during our 9 day holiday. It's not fancy food, but it's cooked well and was very enjoyable. The restaurant is mainly used by locals (that tell's you something) and it's advisable to book otherwise you may not get a table. It was busy... More

It has all the atmosphere and 'buzz' that you should expect in an Italian restaurant - a little off the beaten track. Service, good. food, competent, well presented and satisfying, if not exciting. prices, not outrageous. Wine, the cheapest is quite good!

Ok, a disclaimer. I'm interested in good food and reasonable service. Knowing about portion sizes is only useful if it helps me decide how many courses to have. 'Big portions' is not, by itself, a sign of quality. If you're on the same page, read on. If you just want piles of average tourist food, please skip this review as... More

We waited so long for our menus, then our drinks and then our food, and then another 40 minutes for the bill, I've even lost the will to write the review. The food is good, not any better than the place next door where we ate other night. It's the type of food it's hard to get wrong in this... More

Went to this restaurant on our last night and loved it. Isn't it always the way? Was very busy even at 8pm but they fitted us in. Food and wine were very good and very reasonable. Staff very helpful and pleasant. Would definitely recommend
