Lovely atmosphere, staff and food. It is tucked away from the main promenade but definitely worth seeking out. It is near the park and the gallery. Wine comes in a jug from a tap in the dining room. The sea bass with vegetables is a generous helping and delicious. Panacotta with chocolate or cherries is a good desert choice. There... More

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel and we liked it so much that we went back twice. They spoke no English; but, since we are trying to polish our Italian language, it was fun to try to order and see if they understood us. The lack of English-speaking staff adds to it's authenticity. Over the course of the two... More

A bit over-estimated I would say... People say that restaurant is perfect, that you have to make reservation in advance, etc. but I can't say it is something special. Went here once in the end of September visiting Viareggio but can't say that I felt like coming back one day. Pasta was enough good but veal alla Milanese was really... More

Very busy and popular with locals. Lots of fish on the menu which is what we were looking for, but if you don't like fish the choice would be restricted. Pasta served to next table looked lovely too. Had an authentic Italian feel. Waiter recommended a good Tuscan white wine which was lovely - €15.

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
