My finance and I were recommended to La Peniche as one of the best in Marina de Massa and we were not disappointed! Having just changed the menu, they did not have any English translation! Our waitress for the evening; Larissa, made some excellent recommendations! I can't pronounce the dishes we had and I won't attempt to spell them either... More

I had a business dinner here with clients in February of this year and I must say that the location is quite but very high class indoors. The very relaxed atmosphere and cool music is ideal for a business or private dinner. The wine and food was excellent and the service was just as good. Very courteous waitresses, even if... More

An elegant restaurant along the water front of Marina di Massa. Fish was the main selection of the evening, starting with a fish platter with four different tastings followed by a beautiful presented plate of grilled tuna. Dessert was a must, i recommend 'mela tatin' a delicious warm apple tart with ice-cream on the side. Not only was everything delicious... More

Have been staying in Massa for a couple of months now on business. I have ate in this restaurant maybe 15 times. Great food, staff, atmosphere & price. You can't really ask for more.. I don't usually give 5 stars in my ratings, however this restaurant deserves each and everyone of the them.... Keep up the good work..

My rating here is only for food quality. When I am in area around for work, I always come here with colleagues and customers for dinner. Food is stunning, just last time I was a bit disappointed, because personnel could not answer very simple questions in english, and of course were not able to recommend anything.. I think this is...

Very good fish restaurant, nice venue on the water, outside seating available. Great raw seafood platters. Not really a good choice for meat lovers. The wine list is rather standard. Kind service and reasonable prices

Lovely situateted on the river. Nice and modern interior. Very chic. Looked very expensive, and it was. The food was lovely, but the service not. It took almost more than one hour from when we sat down until the first course was on the table. Many guests left their tables to pay, because the waiters did not come to their... More

Over-priced and somewhat pretentious in my opinion. We were even charged 12 Euros for the privilege of 'sitting down at the table' as the waiter put it. This came on the bill after me, my wife and our two daughters had eaten a rather average meal. There are far better value - and quality - places to eat in Massa.
