The view is beautiful, but the food is nothing more than average. Pizza was nothing special but okay, however, I guess they server better pasta at the Autogrill.

Restaurant gives stereotipical-pseudo Italian foods for tourists, nothing typical from Tuscany, but typical touristic menu. Salad called "Super" ?! - does it sound Italian? Taste for sure not like Italian. Pasta with cozze/vongole came without any sauce and with not clean cozze/vongole. Indeed, the view...More

Buonasera ! Siamo una 15 di mtbbikers che transiteranno la sera di sabato 28 Novembre a Castagneto nell'ambito di una gara/avventura che attraverserà tutta la provincia da Livorno a Piombino con un percorso prevalentemente fuoristrada. Stiamo cercando un ristorante dove cenare e poter usufruire di una sistemazione di fortuna per la notte , siamo autosufficienti con saccoapelo e ci basta proprio un riparo molto spartano per poter riposare qualche ora e poi ripartire alle prime luci dell'alba. Sulle caratteristiche di questo tipo di manifestazioni può andare a vedere in rete cercando bikepacking e tuscanytrail Saranno presenti alla manifestazione che organizzo bikers provenienti da tutta Italia. Aspetto fiducioso vostre news. Distinti Saluti. Marco Lazzerini. Livorno
