Lovely Parma Ham with rucola in a fresh genuine home made Piadina! My favourite quick lunch next to the beach!

Had a look at the menu whilst walking past, looked OK, decided to eat. The food was fine and the waiter was friendly. The cook was obliging as I decided on the toppings of the Pizza. Would recommend.

Recommended by others on our tour and they were right. No extra charge to sit down, friendly staff, good prices and food was value for the money.

What lovely friendly staff. The service is this little cafe is so relaxed and friendly. Remember it's a cafe not a resturant. Food great, prices excellent . Had lunch and a quick ,late pizza here and on both occasions a good experience. If anything negative...the tables are a bit close together.More

This was our favourite place to eat in Viareggio. The quality of food was by far the best, it was not expensive and the staff were both friendly and helpful. They even waved to us as we walked past each lunch time. I cannot recommend...this place highly enough.More

We ate here several times and fully enjoyed our meals due to both the service and the atmosphere within this small restaurant. If you take account of the price, under 29 euros for 2 meals, wine and 2 coffees we were delighted. The staff were...brilliant and this was a very relaxing place to eat.More

We ordered fried chicken with potato and salad, but we got cheap deep fried chicken pastille. It was horrible. The pizza was burnt, and it reflected lack of imagination. We wouldn't eat here ever again.

First of all these cafe is bright and colorful. We ordered piña colada, pizza and a Greek salad. The piña colada was the most awful drink I have ever tasted in my life, by the time the drink was served to us it had already...separated into three. Very unsightly, undrinkable and certainly not a piña colada. The pizza was ok, nothing above that. The salad although large was just tasteless. Even the feta had no taste. Service was very slow. I certainly wouldn't bother dining here again and it's not somewhere that I would feel I could recommend to others.More
