This is the best restaurant I've eaten fish at in Livorno. The food was delicious and fresh !!!!!!! The service exceptional, the bubbly wine good, restaurant spacious and accommodating. It's right next to the port but due to the street might be a little confusing...More

We waited more than 1h after order to have our antipasti... Wine in glasse is ordinar. At the end, they told us they couldn't accepted Visa Card but only cash. The spot is really great but the restaurant is not.

Location could be gorgeous, with outside tables along the channel but it's absolutely no more what it was once. Food is average, the service is lacking. Portions are adequate. Reservation is recommended. Public parking nearby. I defenetly wouldn't dine here again.

Came here for a family dinner. Waited for the food for over an hour, our orders were not brought together (my wife and I had to wait another half an hour). Salty food and bad service. Avoid.

The dishes were salty, and to strong old fishtaste. As main course we tried the local fish-dish with octapus but that one was uneatable.

Extremely friendly and efficient service but food was very very salty. Either the chef is a smoker or doesn't taste as he/she cooks.

Quite unbelievable this place is so lowly rated. It was the best pasta of our lives. The seafood was incredibly fresh and tender. The best tiramisu I have ever had as well. Order the mixed antipasti and any pasta - can't go wrong. Place gets...More

Judging by the number of people in this large restaurant, it's a popular place. We had lunch there. We both ordered fish which was very nice but my portion was a bit scanty. The house wine was really nice and the accompanying salad superb. Very...More
