We've been here 4 times. The owner is a very nice man, great character. The food is chosen for you, mostly seafood, and is a great selection. The table is yours for the night, and it is great to linger on in eating, conversation and follow up with digestivos. It's a small, cramped, wonderful experience.

I donot want to be to enthousiastic about this restaurant as it is really excellent fresh food, top quality for a great price but...........they have only 36 seats, so there is a waitinglist for month. Also the owner Giancarlo advice you the perfect wine with the meals and the wine are "normal" prices , with 10-15 euro you have a good White
bolgari or montecarlo.
antipasti, paste,main dish, deserts & (hausebrand) coffee, all good

We went here for lunch. The restaurant was almost full, but we got ourselves a table.
Very friendly staff, great owner, speaks English well and gives his attention to all tables.

The food is good and the prices are friendly. Great place to go to with children as well.

We would definitely come back here again.

we were taken here by an Italian friend. Its a small restaurant with one sitting per night and bookings have to be made months in advance and for Saturdays a year! however if you phone they may have a cancellation!
this is a fish restaurant with 10 tasting starters served sequentially, followed by 3 'pasta' courses, a main course and a desert!. what is served depends on what is available on the day and the food is served with clever twists on cooking and presenting the food. Wine is included in the price including a sweet wine with desert all for €35!
the maitre d' has a strong resemblance to the late actor Alan Bates and his small troupe of staff cook and serve the food with style.
this is a must if you visit this part of Italy.

Tried this restaurant on our first night in Viareggio but couldn't get a table until the following Sunday- it is a small restaurant and very popular!! Arriving the following Sunday we were surprised not to be given a menu to peruse and then realised that it was to be a set meal which consisted of lots of different fish courses. I was worried as I don't eat shellfish but I needn't have worried as they catered for me beautifully and my partner and I both had a wonderful meal. I am not sure if it is just on Sundays that they do a set menu? We loved the experience of this lively little restaurant and would recommend booking.
