Restaurants in Viareggio on the whole look pretty uninspiring. What a find Trattoria Fronte Del Porto was. This is an Italian seafood restaurant with a limited menu, but what they do, they do extremely well. The set menu is 20 euro for two courses and 25 for three. Wine, dessert and limoncello are included in the price. The food is possibly the best I have had in a seafood restaurant and the service was quick, efficient and courteous. The two of us had a carafe of wine each at no extra charge. Credit where credit is due, Fronte Del Porto deserves praise.

We ate at Trattoria Fronte del Porte in Viareggio.
The location is near the port opposite the Mathilda Tower. It's on quite a busy road but the view across to the Tower with the mountains in the background is really nice and we were really disappointed not to be given a table outside, given we had booked weeks in advance.
The concept here is simple. 2 courses are EUR20 and 3 courses are EUR25. Desserts, water and house wine are included.
We went for 2 courses and dessert. The starter was a mixed fish starter (4 different dishes including prawns in onions, mussels, battered white fish). We all went for pasta next. The highlight for me was the penne with prawns and a truffle cream sauce - superb. Ravioli with sea bass was also wonderful.
We had intended to go for a third course (Secondi) and the selection was great, but we were just too full, so settled for desserts (pannacotta and brownies!)
The food was very simple but exceptional! We couldn't believe we only paid EUR80 for all 4 of us, as we'd had such a lovely meal and we were all stuffed! Give it a go!

Good place with tasty seafood, wine and water are included in the menu. Great atmosphere! Would come back but maybe allow more time for the guests to choose the options. The chef was standing with the menu and I was under pressure to choose the meal nevertheless - I got an excellent dish.

Read the strong reviews and looked forward to our meal. Sorry, but it was disappointing. Friendly staff, but food was just OK. Not bad, but now particularly good. At least it wasn't expensive -- only 25 Euros pp. Also, it was hot as blazes in the place. No air conditioning is fine, but at least open the windows.
