Unfortunately this lovely café/bar was the final stop on the route back to our hotel and a haven for grandchildren seeking homemade ice cream to round of their supper. The outside has very comfortable tables and chairs for customers along the sidewalk and inside it is hospital clean with efficient, friendly service. What a tremendous range of flavours! So many...

I recall first going to Bar Galliano in the late 60's as a rather young boy with my parents, it is amazing that it has survived all these years, maintaining its fame and reputation because of the quality it serves. Pricy, but well worth it, plus it is on the famous "passeggiata", which is a lovely walking street parallel to... More

Gelato (icecream) was fine and average price (1 scoop : €1.70 (2015)) We haven't tried the bar. Personel is friendly and do speak a little English.

Though out of season, the staff quick to help and recommend decent wines. Drinks always came with crisps and nuts. On the second visit, we were warmly welcomed back and also given little sandwich appetizers too. Good English spoken and understood. Warm outside seating available.

After nearly a fortnight of having little else on offer on the main prom other than pizza (as lovely as rye have been) we opted for a burger for lunch. They have an unusual ticket system which must be presented before ordering. Perhaps it's useful during busy periods however during our visit I could not see the benefit of this.... More

We just had crepes on the day we arrived. They were good with great speedy - but not rushed - service and friendly staff. All next to the beach.

Be aware you are not allowed to be served sorbet together with ice-cream! So your chocolate ice-cream and mango sorbet are totally forbidden!! This is totally unheard of and when questioning why no-one seemed to know. Needless to say we moved on to the gelataria next door to whom it was not a problem to put chocolate, peach and melon...

Galliano was recommended by my father in law, a chef. We've tasted their wide varieties of ice, choosen by the lady working their. I can honestly say with all icecream tasted over the years. Galliano in Viareggio is SIMPLY the BEST! Amazing flavours and delicious espresso! Met the owner and his brother:), pure passion:)...., a presto!

If you like sweets you will love Bar Galliano! I tried several of their specialities called "budini." My favorites were budini di riso and budini di ricotta uvetta e pinoli. These delicious pastries were so good I dream of having them again on my next visit. But...their gelato and granita are wonderful also. The biggest problem you will have is... More
