“tasty...very tasty :)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2014

excellent food, great presentation. I'm not a big fan of seafood but I tried a seafood starter and it had mussels,prawns,squid and a shrimp like thing sitting on top of it all, It tasted delicious though I'll admit I didn't try all the seafood on my plate! I had steak for main course, again delicious. It seemed a little expensive but for the portions we got and high quality produce,taste and presentation it was well worth it.
Staff were great too, very helpful and friendly.

“do not order out of menu!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 August 2013

we have been staying there last Monday and ordered selection of starters tasty but poor in quantity comparing with the price, then "crudi" selection on sea food served chilled nice but very small portion but the worst was out of menu the Venus mussels and mussels horrible taste of chicken inside seems to be that instead of Italian way they have gotten a "fusion " French style getting them in confusion....the best plate that really saved the dinner was the mixed fried prawns and calamari with some vegetables fantastic! Regarding wines all offered from Sicily as white 2011 down to La Segreta from Planeta only 2012 really not fair therefore we had to order S. Michel Eppan to get a drinkable wine for a fair price from 2012, service and waiters polite and kind all in all not more than 2 poonts place overvalued in tripadvisor

“Interesting, but lacking detail.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 May 2013

Firstly, the food was good, especially the desert. Good choice of wine, and mostly reasonably priced. What let it down for us was the detail, for example, the waitress was rushing around like a headless chicken, and we got the impression that they wanted us to eat fast, pay and leave. I also noticed that the floor, chairs and tables were a little sticky. For the money we paid for a simple meal I expected more trimmings. In my opinion, if you want homely it shouldn't be so 'high-end' price wise, otherwise go more VIP to match the pricing. Decent enough, and suitable for families. Note, they do not make Pizza on a Saturday, so expect higher priced fayre to be offered.

“La Peniche; please stay open”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 November 2012

La Penische, a friendly not daily atmosphere at the side of river in the centre of Marina di Massa. Was there once with my wife, and has a little dinner in the evening, very good starter and main courses a companied with a good local wine. No hush-hush dinner place, friendly waiters and the chef takes time to cook the food to your service. Flavours are ok (personal). Visited 2 days later again with business friends, the chef has been asked to cook to his imagination a 5 dishes menu. We are very pleased and surprised the way he prepared us the food, all where different in taste and the combination and size was very well chosen by the chef who knows his way in the kitchen. In this end of the season a lot of restaurants have been closed, I hope that Penische stays open to be tasted by you.
