I was recommended this restaurant by an Italian friend who lives in Livorno. I was looking for somewhere to take my parents for lunch during their day ashore from a cruise, so wanted something 'local' instead of touristy. We were the first clients of the day when we arrived around 12:30pm, but when we left the place was full (with Italians). The menu isn't huge, with a choice of 7 or 8 dishes for each course (with only 1 of each being meat based). We had melon & prosciutto for antipasti (which arrived on a huge board with mozzarella balls, asparagus mousse, a mini cheese soufflé and bruschetta!). For primi we had tagliatelle with lobster and tomatoes (delicious!) and then for secondi I chose baccala (cod in a rich and slightly picante tomato sauce) and my parents chose the tagliata (sliced steak with leaves and fresh tomatoes). We could only manage coffee afterwards but on leaving the restaurant I noticed another customer eating a huge slice of cheesecake, which looked fantastic, so I'll have to return to try it! Primis are around €9 and secondis around €12. Go and enjoy!

Second time here in 12 months and I plan to come back in November. Sat inside as tables outside were booked- and to all you parking nearby, be especially vigilant that you have parked in the right area and not a locals only spot! Anyway, had a great fresh seafood starter here, this included decisious marinated langoustines. The kids had pasta, which the resto` served at the same time. Big plates too! The starter consisted of around 10 different tastes of the sea, like seafood quiche, a mini caciucco etc, in itself this was very tasty. Then had a pasta for the main- with langoustines while my wife had something similar, both really strong flavoured and cooked very well. They have made an effort here with the wine glasses too, not just thick cups but they have stems and are as close as you get to Riedels without moving into a price bracket, where you might get better food but la ower QPR. All in, a good meal and I will visit again. Paid around EUR75 for the family, including sparkling wine and drinks for the kids.

This restaurant is in theVenice area of Livorno, furthermore, off Via della Venezia and kitty corner of the Church of the Crocetta. Great service, atmosphere and seafood. Indeed, seafood is the speciality. If you like black rice, well, this is the right place as it is for many other kinds of dishes: shrimp, octopus, calamari, you name it. A very well priced. Good list of wines. The lunch stop here on a slow Sunday added to the experience of this cozy city. It is also on a strategic area for those disembarking from the cruise ships. I would definitely come back.
