“Refreshing discovery in Livorno”
Reviewed November 16, 2013

It was a Public Holiday in Italy - All Saint's Day, It appeared that just about everything was closed. But Restaurante Cinese La Giada was open at lunchtime, thank goodness.
This restaurant is quite large - but you are not necessarily aware of that fact because there are at least three, if not four, dining rooms/areas. All are rather lavishly decorated in a Chinese style.
The staff were all of Chinese origin/appearance, and all spoke fluent Italian; and they were welcoming..
The menu consists of more than 100 items - all the usual Chinese fare. But two things need to be noted:
- the food which I was presented with was very fresh and tasty, and
- it was very reasonably priced. In fact, these prices were the best and most reasonable I had encountered in all of my stay in Italy!
This place is worth a visit for lunch or dinner. It is licensed (very reasonably-priced wines, etc). And the washrooms were very clean. Linen napkins, and tableclothes; and chopsticks are offered.
I have scored this with a rating of Average; if I had visited more often, and sampled more of their dishes, I rather suspect that I may have given it a rating of Very Good - i.e. four stars.
If you live in Livorno, or are just visiting en route to some other destination, then a visit to this restaurant on Viale G Carducci, on the main road from the railway station into the town, is recommended.
