Setting aside the timing of the meal deliveries, this is a good wholesome place to eat. A good menu and hidden wine list make this an adventure too! Not fancy but friendly and a dam good Negroni.

It wasn't super touristy, which is nice. The pizza and penne arrabiata were delicious! It filled us up for many hours, and it was inexpensive. It was very cute too with all of the LOTR stuff.

Our family, the light of my life and the the 2 teenagers had a stunning meal. An experience you wish you could bottle and repeat. My wife and I had popped in for a drink in the late afternoon only because they had tables set up outside. The service was haphazard, especially as we were the only guests. The snacks,... More

On our first night in Viareggio we thought we'd just take a wander from our hotel and take a risk on a restaurant without checking the reviews first. This place looked nice with tables out in the street. We were the first to sit down for dinner at about 7.30pm but the place was soon full by about 8.30pm, mostly... More

We had lunch here. Friendly staff, good food and not expensive. Full lunch including two courses, wine, water and coffee 43 euro. Great pasta and pizza and seafood.

Went here on the strength of the reviews on the TripAdvsior app. We found a place that offered solid, if unexciting fare; the seafood was good, the pizza was average. The portions were good. Being a big pizza fan I was looking forward to what they served up based on the reviews but what arrived was a perfectly functional, middle... More

Authentic pizzeria, friendly and helpful staff, hearty fare. Extensive pizza menu. Portions generous, pasta good if not outstanding with better value and quality than the boardwalk.

We asked our neighbors for a local pizzeria as we heard the one we normally go to had declined in quality, and they recommended this place. As first, we dismissed the name (which translated means The Shire), but as soon as we walked in, the elvish writing, movie posters, and LOTR inspired pizzas revealed this to be a themed pizzeria....
