Extremely friendly and efficient service but food was very very salty. Either the chef is a smoker or doesn't taste as he/she cooks.

The worst restaurant of our one week holidays in Tuscany. Awful service and very bad food . My pasta were not cooked and the tomato sauce was bitter. I had just one spoon and stopped eating. Drinks were not cold. A very bad experience . This is a shame for the italian cuisine.

Walked around Livorno and this was seemed to be recommended. As you can see from my posts I am a foodie and love good service and fine food. This restaurant fails miserably regarding service. The food was beautiful. The service was so slow over an hour to wait for our starters. In that time I saw one table walk out... More

Quite unbelievable this place is so lowly rated. It was the best pasta of our lives. The seafood was incredibly fresh and tender. The best tiramisu I have ever had as well. Order the mixed antipasti and any pasta - can't go wrong. Place gets packed with locals from 8.30 - 9.00pm.

Judging by the number of people in this large restaurant, it's a popular place. We had lunch there. We both ordered fish which was very nice but my portion was a bit scanty. The house wine was really nice and the accompanying salad superb. Very nice friendly staff who all spoke good English.

I went here on a monday cause it was the only one available near the harbour. The girl waiter was incompetent and was litteray improvising in her role. She didn't even know differences between "stewed" and "fried". We waited ages for getting our dishes and it was awful. We talked with the manager and he wanted us to pay even... More

Found this place while driving aimlessly round Livorno docks. Service was slow but the cod with tomato sauce was excellent and the location is interesting, in an old warehouse by a canal.
