We had the €20 menu, it was not presented to us but had to ask the waiter for it but it was then brought instantly without comment. The menu included 3 courses with water, wine and coffee. There was a good range of choices available for each course and the wine was very drinkable. The food was excellent and the... More

Take you time and enjoy the excellent food and look at all the locals who eat here , a sure sign that it is good. Foodwise everything freshly made to order, arrives hot and... More

I hopped of at the duomo to see the church, when my eye caught this restaurant. I was told not to miss a speciality from Livorno. It is a speciality fish dish.... They call it soup, but it is really a very large dish, tomato based... With a mixture of so much fish, I stopped counting. Heaven on your tongue.... More

There are about three different entrances to this restaurant. When we first looked through the door we could only see empty tables! Not a good sign until the happy pizza man called us in to the "back room". Full of the locals enjoying a very good value set menu. A very relaxed atmosphere 3course + glass of wine + coffee....

The Vecchia Senese, is located just around the corner from the cathedral in the center of Livorno. Livorno is not a city noted for tourism, so the restaurants here tend be modest and family run. This is just such a local family run restaurant which just serves great food, in a friendly family atmosphere. We arrived early and the place... More

This was our second visit, it is just round the corner from where we are staying. The staff recognised us! For our first course I had grilled sole - very tasty! My partner had veal. Then they offered us strawberries and cream! The first strawberries of the season.....delicious!

We had the salmon penne and seafood risotto followed by tiramisu and tarta el nono with a bottle of wine came to €45. Not the cheapest meal we have had in Italy and the portion sizes were on the small side for the price but it was very tasty. The waitress did not speak much English but she was friendly... More
