The unimposing facade and simple location in smalltown vicarello misleads the passerby. When in Livorno or Pisa (it's not far from the airport) make sure to visit this hidden gem for seafood or a meat-based dinner. The friendly couple of Giorgio and David will welcome you to their refined cuisine with creative matches and excellent home-made patisserie. Their creations add... More

Located inside the small town of vicarello (close to Firenze Livorno freeway), it is not easy to find it. When you have found it, enjoy how good his dishes are! Suggestion: raw fish with fresh fruit, sea carbonara, and above all the unforgettable "catalana", with raw vegetables and fresh fruit (papaya, blackberry, raspberry...) accompaining shrimps and scampi. Service careful and... More

We were traveling in Italy in February 2013 to celebrate my 40th birthday, and dinner at Ristorante David was a highlight of our trip. The restaurant is warm and welcoming, with wonderful artwork everywhere you look, and the food is just incredible. We sampled a lot of dishes, from appetizers to entrees to desserts, and loved them all. (I couldn’t... More

My husband and I had the pleasure of dining at this establishment with friends and family while on vacation. The restaurant had a very homey vibe and the staff was friendly and welcoming. The portions were huge, and David, the owner and chef, took special care in preparing vegetarian options for me. The wine suggestions were spot-on, and we all... More

This was the best Ristorante we found in Tuscany, and there are many good excellent places. We discovered Ristorante David by accident travelleling by Livorno late in the evening. But the food and staff were both outststanding. Seafood and Meats were all excellent, but take a large appetite as the portions can be as outstanding as the food. Grazie Ristorante... More

We had the great fortune of dining at this wonderful family owned restaurant while visiting Tuscany this past summer. The food, especially the fish, was perfect. The wine parings and desert couldn't have been better. The staff made you feel like you were family. The entire evening was one of the highlights of our trip, and I would highly recommend... More

Four of my friends and I had the opportunity to dine here in July. It was a memorable meal. The food was outstanding - the seafood was perfectly fresh, and utterly delicious. The portions are incredible - share the appetizers!!!! And the service was outstanding. If you are in the area you must dine here!!!

My family and I were in Tuscany for the holidays and stumbled upon this family-run restaurant in a small town near Pisa. We were immediately given a warm welcome by the owner, who doesn't speak much English but manages to communicate just as well! The food was outstanding; my wife enjoyed the incredibly fresh seafood and I had by far... More

We ate here 3 times during our stay last yaer in Tuscany. The food is terrific (try the seafood antpasto and any pasta). Chef David is very friendly, and his brother, who helps out in the dining rooms on weekends is a charmer. Not much on atmisphere but the food makes up for it. Not much English spoken here or...
