Simona Fantoni is the talented chef at this slow food recommended restaurant. Although the portions of the “crudo” and baked fish were small, we found each course perfectly executed and delicious. Fantoni’s father, our waiter, provides a passionate historical explanation of each dish. The restaurant serves local fish normally excluded from the menus of other fish restaurants. Each dish is...

This place is my wife's and my favorite restaurant. As simple as that. The fish is treated with an absolute knowledge of its characteristics, respects of its delicate nuances of taste and assembled in yummy dishes. The formula we prefer is the menu, created by Simona, the chef, with the fishes local fishers selected for her in the daily market.... More

By just looking at it, you could never understand the kind of this small restaurant. If you do not mind to eat in open air, near to a road with some traffic, you enjoy a lot of different small dishes of fresh fish. You also need to have the evening free, because all these dishes take a a long time.... More

We passed this strange little restaurant a few nights into our holiday and although this isn't somewhere we would usually eat, decided to try it out on our last evening in Viareggio. We hadn't read any reviews and couldn't find a menu anywhere but felt it had a good atmosphere and asked if they had a table for two. The... More

My fiancée and I visited the restaurant last summer and had one of the best dinners of the whole trip. Although we didn't know what we were eating (we speak basically no italian and the staff didn't speak any english), we had a perfect evening with great food, vine and service! Grazie mille!

The old lady serving (and probably owning the place) does not make the experience easy... she does not have a real clue about how food is cooked etc... and can't help showing a very unpleasant attitude with those that pay her bills in the end (instead they are treated like ignorant tourists welcomed to the kingdom of good food). Food... More

The GPS couldn’t find this place - it's on Marco Polo street in the middle of the park.. Fixed menu only that evening. Amuse bouche of fish paste on a tuile-shaped cracker. First plate - a fish/veggie compote was ordinary. The ensuing raw seafood plate featuring a shrimp with two black eyes staring up let us know that dinner would... More
