We've been here 4 times. The owner is a very nice man, great character. The food is chosen for you, mostly seafood, and is a great selection. The table is yours for the night, and it is great to linger on in eating, conversation and follow up with digestivos. It's a small, cramped, wonderful experience.

We went here for lunch. The restaurant was almost full, but we got ourselves a table. Very friendly staff, great owner, speaks English well and gives his attention to all tables. The food is good and the prices are friendly. Great place to go to with children as well. We would definitely come back here again.

Tried this restaurant on our first night in Viareggio but couldn't get a table until the following Sunday- it is a small restaurant and very popular!! Arriving the following Sunday we were surprised not to be given a menu to peruse and then realised that it was to be a set meal which consisted of lots of different fish courses.... More

Really worth booking in advance. We were delighted to get a table for two for the Saturday night of our stay. Had a really memorable and truly delicious meal, with wonderful wine and a fantastic atmosphere. The restaurant kindly prepared gluten free versions of each course for me and although the very welcoming and friendly owners don't speak much English... More

Little and nice place. Only 35 seats. Only fish. 12 to 15 little starters with good white wine just to begin. Then they proposes 6-7 different first wonderful dishes (pasta) .
