One of the better places to eat dinner on a stay in Viareggio, though this is more for the atmosphere than food. We visited here without reservation and were greeted by a friendly welcome. Antica Locanda de Luca serve local cuisine (pasta and seafood) in a traditional Italian setting. The food is simple, favouring portion size (plentiful) over taste, which... More

This place is brilliant, I can't recommend the seafood tasting menu highly enough, that would do it justice in quality, diversity and value. We ate here twice in Feb during the magnificent Viareggio carnivale. We were given the most fantastic food and service despite the numbers and timings of the party on each of the two night being a bit... More

The seafood was terrific and the people were friendly. The restaurant had couples, families and a single, such as myself. It was fun being in that casual atmosphere.

Lovely atmosphere, staff and food. It is tucked away from the main promenade but definitely worth seeking out. It is near the park and the gallery. Wine comes in a jug from a tap in the dining room. The sea bass with vegetables is a generous helping and delicious. Panacotta with chocolate or cherries is a good desert choice. There... More

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel and we liked it so much that we went back twice. They spoke no English; but, since we are trying to polish our Italian language, it was fun to try to order and see if they understood us. The lack of English-speaking staff adds to it's authenticity. Over the course of the two... More

A bit over-estimated I would say... People say that restaurant is perfect, that you have to make reservation in advance, etc. but I can't say it is something special. Went here once in the end of September visiting Viareggio but can't say that I felt like coming back one day. Pasta was enough good but veal alla Milanese was really... More

Very busy and popular with locals. Lots of fish on the menu which is what we were looking for, but if you don't like fish the choice would be restricted. Pasta served to next table looked lovely too. Had an authentic Italian feel. Waiter recommended a good Tuscan white wine which was lovely - €15.

Very popular and busy with locals particularly big parties celebrating. Booking is possible although they didn't seem to write anything down. Staff very good and efficient on a very busy night. We were attracted by their 5 course tasting menu for 28€ inc. wine It was good but possibly not as good as they think it is. Perhaps a little... More

First off - this isn't a terrible restaurant. But as #14 in Viareggio I expected better. We visited here on our first night in town. It took a long time to get the attention of any of the three servers on duty and be seated. There was then a long wait for service. We ordered the house white which was... More
