We spent a week here in June. We ate in a different restaurant for five evenings. Everyplace offering the very same , average, overpriced , small portions on top of overpriced beverages . The whole area was a rip off from the day day we arrived, from Taxis, food, drink and this thing of renting loungers on the beach from €25 per day and €10 extra if you wanted to use their " pool ", tub more like! Anyway, rant over.
What a breath of fresh this place is that we stumbled upon. Fabulous pizza at a very cheap price, don't know how they do it, people were going in and out all day long. There are plenty of places to sit outside. Two bars beside it offering drinks at the proper price , excellent service. I couldn't praise this place highly enough , excellent value for money and worth a
visit. How anybody could give this place a poor rating is beyond me, they must have their heads stuck in the clouds. By the way , Lido Di Camaoire is a beautiful area, it's a pity most places are trying to screw you over.

You're hungry? You haven't enough time? You don't like McSomething but you love fast food? This is the right address for you! Always four or five different kind of pizza, very stuffed and very cheap. No seats inside (there isn't any true "inside"!), but you are on a magnificent pedestrian walk with stone seats and gardens.

Rusticanella has been where it is forever. It is a tiny little place with a perennial queue and a serving bar at the end of it.
That is it.
If you can stand the queue and accept to eat somewhere around or at home (there are not sitting places provided) than the pizza won't betray!
It is soft and juicy and absolutely inexpensive. The most valuable is the one with frutti di mare (mixed seafood) and no mozzarella in my opinion

Rusticanella has been open in Viareggio for years and years and doesn't appear to be going anywhere. There isn't much to say about it, it's a quick and inexpensive take-away pizza place that's open from morning to night. The selection of pizzas to choose from is extensive enough, and the quality is good, if a little heavy in large doses. One down side, being a take-away place, it doesn't sell beverages, however it is placed next to a bar that does which isn't entirely inconvenient.

As take-away pizza goes, no place is more popular than Rusticanella in Viareggio. Traditional pizza by the slice with 10+ simple but delicious options. Like most places, the price is by weight. We took one slice of ham, one of potato, and one of mushroom, which cost 7 euro. Perfect for a pre-dinner snack while on a stroll or a cheap pizza dinner.
