“Good but expensive, a bit disapointing”
Reviewed October 28, 2011

After some other reviews of this restaurant I was expecting a lot... but didn't find what I expect.

The menu has a quite short list of suggestions, food is from 'a bit above average' to 'pretty good' but none of our dishes was worth a 'fantastic' or 'superb' .

Service was good but not without any special care of kind, you expect better for thet class of price. It was the ONLY restaurant of our 11 days stay in Viareggio that did not offer or a glass of Prosecco or a Grappa or the coffe. You have to go behind the bar to enter pin code of your credit card and the people looks like not too happy regarding credit card payment.

For 2 persons, with a reasonnable wine (we asked the waiter to suggest us a wine matching bour meal) + 2 starters in the medium prices (not the Foie Gras) + 2 main dishes with side dishes (french fries) + 1 desert, 2 coffee and 1 grappa we had to pay more than 120 €.

Regarding the service, quality / quantity of the dishes, creativity of the menu, the place itself and all other parameters this appears really overpriced - some 80 to 90 € would be much more matching our meal experience. There are other restaurant with same quality (a bit less 'chic' I agree) in Viareggio for half price of this one and some MUCH better food to have for that price at other places.

I don't say you'll have a bad experience but simply I can have way cheaper or way better at sompe other places. Will not go again and will not recommend it.

“Ignorant"”
Reviewed October 5, 2011

This restautramt has great wines and raw materials, but preparation and service is not at all up to expectations and price. IN my opinion the owner and manager is negligent of details. Meat was burnt og customers forgotten. With more attention to detail and quality in all, there might be hope. For the time being the success has undermined its own basis.

“Great Restaurant !”
Reviewed September 26, 2011

We had a great evening here. The owner is very much taking care and also has a good sense of humor. Very good fish and fantastic meat which comes on a hot stone. Biramisu - sounds strange but is really worth trying. Prices are OK and wine selection is very good. also a good and well prices house wine by the glass. We will come again, next time when we are in Italy !

Tripadvisor and google location wrong - it is one block / street west.
