We went there based upon the great reviews on trip advisor. I cannot more agree with all the positive reviews. The restaurant is located in the backstreets of Viareggio and in case you want a posh restaurant or a tourist menu, this is not your place. Do you want a tasty and fine dinner in a friendly atmosphere, this restaurant... More

Are you tired of tourist restaurants and looking for original food, that use good ingredients and put care in the making - this is the place. The dishes are exciting, tasty and far from the standard tourist menu available at the popular and crowded beach restaurants. A very informal place where you eat in a quiet street. You are served...

The best plate of scampi and prawns I've had was served here and the Cuttlefish au gratin was also excellent and really good value. While there was a large party going on indoors the staff were still full of attention to other customers

We have been to this restaurant on four occasions and every time it has been great. The food is very traditional and excellent value for money. If you are going to Viareggio don't miss this gem

We looked all over Tuxtla for craft beer with very little success. This place has 35 beers in its list and had most of them in stock. The pizza was good, not great but if you're looking for Mexican craft beer don't miss this one.

We rolled up late and the friendly front man told us to come back 20 minutes later. Next time - and there will be a next time - I'd book. Service was a bit slow - slow to bring menus, slow to take orders, slow to bring food. But the main issue I have is just the very arbitrary order... More

This restaurant was recommended by the staff at Hotel Tirennia (a great little hotel). It is a little out of the way and is frequented mostly by locals. The restaurant is small, about 10 - 15 tables, and is very warm and welcoming. Their specialty is seafood and it was wonderful. The staff was very friendly and attentive and it... More

This small restaurant is three or four blocks back from the beach but well worth finding. The atmosphere is really laid back and the food is excellent value for money. Try the pasta with bolognese sauce, it's delicious, and the fish dishes are great. We ate there three times during our 7 day stay in Viareggio earlier this I month,... More
