Pity they have changed the staff. In the past the barman was very quick and always friendly, now it is a different story. We have changed bars!

Just had our 2nd lunch here this week ! Nice food, nice atmosphere, cheerful staff, quite posh inside, much better than most. We would call it a restaurant but they call it a cafe. However it is far superior to most of the local cafes. Nice to have staff with a sense of humour. We went for seafood on both... More

Gran Caffe Margherita became our regular haunt for after dinner drinks while in Viareggio - for two main reasons. It wasn’t hostile to “non-eaters” in the evening and the service and drinks were very good. They have an extensive cocktail-list, which ranged from very good to a bit “dodgy”. The one thing that could not be faulted, was the provision... More

Food didn't quite live up to the beautiful architecture but pleasant and reasonably priced but there is better just a bit further along the strip.. But enjoy the ambiance with a coffee here.

This famous restaurant in a fabulous location was a real disappointment when six of us had dinner there in early September 2016. The food itself was very poor. The bruschetta was soggy and tasteless and 'damp'. Two of my friends ordered Lasagne and it was terrible. Grey and unpleasant, any self-respecting chef would not have served it. The service was...

We had good food and good service. So much so we returned twice and felt the same both times. These are restaurants that cater for the tourists. We sat outside and enjoyed watching the passers by and enjoyed typical cooking and nice wine.

Had lunch at this lovely restaurant and was very impressed. The menu caters for all tastes. My husband and I both had a pizza which was fantastic value for money.... Approx 7 Euro each. Would definitely visit again.

Starter of bruschetta was soggy and tasteless. Waiter serving us had a serious attitude problem and was unhelpful to us.

This review has nothing to do about the food im afraid, last night me and my wife wanted to have dinner there because the place looks fantastic and the menu looked good, before we approched a waiter we thought we should look inside to see if they had tables inside and not only outside, suddenly we hear an angry voice...

Ate here once while on a two day stopover in Viareggio. We had a meal of mostly fish, which was rather nice. The location is nice, the staff are friendly, and they play good music. All in all, pretty good. Only thing we need to mention is that the child sized "pasta quills" meal is rather too small for a... More
