Great pasta at an amazing a price
May 2017
We had a day in Livorno during a cruise we took in May 17. We were looking for a place to eat and discovered we had passed beyond restaurant row in our search. Now that we were both hungry AND tired, we spotted Bar Sirena sitting alone near the highway. I peeked into the restaurant and noted it was filled with locals workers. We decided to join them and we are so glad that we did. The menu has something for everyone and the pastas are perfect. My partner ordered the "gnoccetthi sardi alla carlofortina" and I would suggest everyone do the same. Now this is not gnocchi but rather small fresh pasta shells tossed with a light tomato basil sauce along with tuna and a very dry romano cheese. It was a revelation and definitely enough for two. I had the pasta con pesche. The pasta was perfectly cooked (Italians, I've found, take al dente very seriously) and the sauce was a basic oil/garlic. I noticed a lovely seafood salad that the woman next to me ordered. It, too, offered more than enough for two. The house wine is more than acceptable and the service is outstanding. Our server spoke very good English but was willing to put up with my faux Italian which improves (in my estimation) as I drink more wine. I'd be more than willing to make another visit to Livorno just to visit Bar Sirena. BTW: as the name suggests, there's a bar next to the restaurant which we did not visit. I did peek in and it seemed like a great time was being had by the locals.

Truly local everyday experience
Jul 2020
The Sirena bar welcomes regular and non-regulars, both with drinks and an excellent selection of wines, and with a restaurant for lunch and dinner. It has outdoor and covered tables, so as to be a meeting point in all seasons. If you are looking for a truly local experience, you cannot miss it.
