We live abroad, but my wife is from Livorno and each time we visit her family we eat here! Without their carbonara di mare my visit to Livorno is not complete. Remote from any tourist locations, here you get the real Italian seafood.

The food is delicious, freshly made with fresh ingredients; the atmosphere is authentic and informal; no menus on the table, you order based on the choices you are told by the waiters; trust these people, they know how to make you feel at home; the bill at the end is a nice surprise; we paid 60 EUR for the 2 of us, with antipasti, primo, secondo and lots of wine; definetely the best place to eat fish we've been in a long time!

I worked in Livorno for most of 2010 and 2011 and came here at least 3 times a week for lunch, and got to know the locals and the owners. There is no menu, the waiters are rude yet funny, manic yet efficient, and shout what there is available as you sit down. I tried everything over the course of the time I was there and miss the food terribly. Riso nero, tripe florentine, the best carbonara ever, spaghetti with fresh sardines, spaghetti with mantis shrimp, frito misto, etc etc. Try a steak or a whole bream or bass off the grill, accompanied by their sliced fried potatoes - delicious. Cacciucco is a traditional Livornese fish stew and they do a great one here. The restuarant is actually only part of a larger vintners business, and the house table wine is throroughly drinkable, a lot better than most of the cheaper wines you'll find in any UK supermarket. The owners also make their own cheeses, hams and salamis and these are all well worth a try - get a selection of all of them as a starter! To finish try a ponche or a coffee with a grappa di barique. Don't expect finery, because you won't get it, but if you are looking for a memorable lunch or dinner, this is a great place to try.

The place is simple, not really charming but it is a tipical "osteria" in Legorn. Come here if you like fish otherwise you do not have a great choice. The tipical Leghorn "cacciucco" is very nice and tasteful. The first dishes, rice or pasta with fish are excellent. The wine, coffee and price are good. Well, it is quite cheap compared to the quality. I would suggest it. Been there several times and having different dishes, all nice. Never disappointed.

I'm Italian, that is the city where I belong.
Typical Osteria, average food (just fish) and average wine, with a €25 each. No view no location. The same as sottomarino.
