“A table overlooking the gas pumps”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2013

This restaurant was recommended by the hotel for good seafood. It is located on a corner between a string of other small restaurants. It was crowded at 9:00 pm when we arrived an had a short wait for a table. The restaurant seating was all open air, under cover seating. Our table offered a view of the gas pumps at the gas station next door. We were waited on promptly. The waiter knew the menu well and was able to offer wine suggestions. Three of us all had different entrees including risotto frutti di mare, grilled orata (bream), and a house specialty which was pasta piled high with shrimp, scallops and fish in a tomato sauce. The wait time for the prepared food was quite long but the wait was worth it. The portions were generous and the food was delicious. We didn't have room for dessert but did sample some grappa. We left the restaurant about 11:45. This place is worth a try if you are in the area.

“Nice place for dinner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2013 via mobile

Nice place for a dinner with or without children. The food and service were very good and if you go there late, expect to wait as it is popular with tourists and locals. We were told to have the tiramisu and it is definitely worth it at 6 euros.

“Best Restaurant in Tirrenia”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2013

Great people, great food. I have never had a bad experience in Lo Squalo. In a touristy beachside town where good food can be hard to find, Lo Squalo is always fantastic.
