Supposedly the best cacciucco restaurant in Livorno is limping behind its reputation. Be attentive to the efforts of the head waiter to make you order an unnecessarily huge meal. The cacciucco is large and heavy and can be shared, the crudo part of the antipasto is worth it, but the rest is unremarkable and could be shared just to wet... More

With three hours to kill before the motor rail to Holland, this was the place to go. We arrived at 12.30, to be greeted by the chef, who set our table. We chose a light meal as we would be eating on the train as well. Having been here last summer for my birthday, we had an idea of what... More

A group of nine of us went to this restaurant around noon time which was too early for lunch for Italians... The waiter didn't want us to get in even we just wanted to get a table and sat down to wait... but after some debate, a younger gentleman (seems like the owner/chef) finally let us in... and arranged us...

Went to the restaurant as it was recommended by the guide book, this was a big mistake. Food was mediocre to say the least, but very pricy. Quality of the fish was not great either. When the waiter has very dirty trousers and shirt then you wonder what the kitchen looks like as well??? It did give us a laugh... More

I had dinner with my family on a Friday evening. When we arrived the place was empty as we were early (for Italian standards). Some more guests came later the evening, but at best the restaurant was 1/4 full. Maybe because July is low-season for Livorno (we were just staying overnight to catch the ferry). We were sitting on the... More
