This is a restaurant that specialises in more traditional seafood and shellfish, such as mixed grills, seafood platters, lobsters etc, and does it very well. It is situated centrally in the city and would seem to attract a fair number of tourists. The ambience is also rather dated. All of the dishes we had, being scallops with roast vegetables, a...

The hotel owner recommended this restaurant for a good seafood and fish and it was really a good choice! Very delicious food and wine. A dinner for two around 40-50€! This is the restaurant where good food is the key and not the interior. No need to spend money for expensive furniture or menu cards! Simple and excellent.

What a great little fish restaurant first greeted with a glass of Prosecco Which was a great touch. We had a lovely mixed grill starter which I would highly recommend and also tried my first oyster(not as slimy as I thought it would be). For my main I had pasta and my partner had lobster both great and big portions.... More

Lob's became our favorite spot for seafood, and a welcome break from the city's many pasta-and-pizza eateries. The room's colorful, nautical decor features ship's lamps, an illuminated earth globe, wall maps, and a painting of a ship-wrecked sailor being rescued by a mermaid. Portions are ample and satisfying. Highly recommended are the steamed mussels, fish platters and linguine-and-mussels entrees.

My wife is a seafood lover, not keen on the famous Florence T-bone, glad we found this lovely seafood restaurant. They offered two small glasses of sparkling wine for free, almost drunk during lunch! Great service! Their food was great too, highly recommend the Seafood Risotto and Seafood Salad.
