I was referred to this Restaurant by the clerk at the hotel where I was staying in Livorno. It was sensational. The pizza I had on the first night was as good as I have had and the pasta on the second night just beautiful. Everything about this place is first class. The waiters are thoroughly professional, multilingual. The cook... More

We had the €20 menu, it was not presented to us but had to ask the waiter for it but it was then brought instantly without comment. The menu included 3 courses with water, wine and coffee. There was a good range of choices available for each course and the wine was very drinkable. The food was excellent and the... More

I hopped of at the duomo to see the church, when my eye caught this restaurant. I was told not to miss a speciality from Livorno. It is a speciality fish dish.... They call it soup, but it is really a very large dish, tomato based... With a mixture of so much fish, I stopped counting. Heaven on your tongue.... More

There are about three different entrances to this restaurant. When we first looked through the door we could only see empty tables! Not a good sign until the happy pizza man called us in to the "back room". Full of the locals enjoying a very good value set menu. A very relaxed atmosphere 3course + glass of wine + coffee....

The Vecchia Senese, is located just around the corner from the cathedral in the center of Livorno. Livorno is not a city noted for tourism, so the restaurants here tend be modest and family run. This is just such a local family run restaurant which just serves great food, in a friendly family atmosphere. We arrived early and the place... More

This was our second visit, it is just round the corner from where we are staying. The staff recognised us! For our first course I had grilled sole - very tasty! My partner had veal. Then they offered us strawberries and cream! The first strawberries of the season.....delicious!
