I use to go Pontile Cafe every once in a while for a light Sunday lunch, when visiting my mum who lives nearby. The location is nothing but spectacular, on the top of a pier reaching out far into the sea on a popular sandy beach. In the fine weather the view spans from Gorgona, the northernmost island of the Tuscan archipelago, and Corsica, if you are lucky, towards SW, to the Poets' Gulf near La Spezia, towards NW, and the majestic Apuan Alps (snowy in the Winter, marbly, al year round) towards N-NW. In the Summer you can sit out in the breeze that always blows from the sea in the hottest hours; in the winter there are a few tables inside, sheltered by window walls that keep the view intact. The menu is limited, but appealing and not trivial. I cannot judge the whole of it, for we regularly order the same items (a warm seafood salad with raw vegetables for me, seafood spaghetti for my mum), but we have always find the food light and well prepared. the service is courteous the first time you go, friendly and polite as you get acquainted with the waiters. We usually pay of the order of 40 euros for two dishes, one dessert, one glass of wine, one bottle of sparkling water, one coffee. The price is worth the view alone, and is more than fair for an otherwise rather expansive riviera.
