The location is superb but everything else is a disaster. Service is incompetent, the owner is clueless and food is mediocre.
I had the bone of lamb with a tiny piece of meat, my wife had a great chewy steak.
As there are plenty of tourists in Pietrasanta ,each night will provide enough victims to undergo the same experience.....

Instead of suffering the same fate there are plenty of other good restaurants in Pietrasanta to choose from.

The terrace is in a prime location, the interior has a nice dining area. We have been here before and are aware of the prices but would not be a problem if the service and food were as good as our last visit. This time we were here at the end of September and it was not very busy tables available both inside and on the terrace. They should inform you what is not available upon being seated not after they take your order and bring a menu back to you. They were out of 3 of the things we wanted, 2 apps and an entree' . Ended up getting the chicken liver crostini and we both had the octopus. The chicken liver crostini were chunky and rustic (not my favorite). The octopus was excellent, tender but with a nice char from the grill and a nice portion. One order of potatoes enough to share. We ordered a bottle of wine but the server poured our wine and took the bottle and kept it in the front of the restaurant. We kept asking when he would finally pass by for a glass of our wine. Wish he would have just given us a wine bucket and kept it next to us so we could refill our glasses. I believe he misunderstood and tried to charge us by the glass on a wine that on the list was by the bottle. This issue was thankfully rectified. I had high expectations for our dinner here as it was one of the most memorable dinners in the past but not sure if we will be back.

Gret recommendations on wine and food. We knew this might become expensive as we took our time and treated the courses as tapas selections (which was a great idea). Service very good and hope to return. Big focus on gluten free when mentioned. Fantastic as an enoteca, we went out of season and there were still 3 sommeliers. The wine list is like a bible - no... thicker!

We had dinner twice, seated in the street. This is a fantastic restaurant. Nice and friendly staff. Try the chicken-steak! In the evening the row of tables is extended when it becomes busy. Go there and eat there when visiting Pietrasanta.

The restaurant is in a fantastic location. With a great range of food on the menu and a bible full of fine wine, I would definitely recommend for anyone looking for an indulgent evening.
