Italian Restaurant
“To my point of view it's the most typical restaurant and a true experience you cannot miss visiting Livorno. Good food, friendly staff and more than reasonable price. It is not possible to book a table in advance but, while waiting, you'll be offered a glass of wine. You will most probably seat at the table with other people, always with a very friendly approach.”

Restaurant
“The quintessential Pisa experience: small, crowded, noisy, oily, and you most likely won't get the Tuscan-style jokes of the cashier, but every Pisan, low-life to upscale, eats there and feels welcome. You don't go there for the food, but for the ambiance and the experience. Forget the standard pizza: get "due quarti con cecina" and a beer at the bar. You will not be disappointed. ”

Restaurant
“Meraviglioso locale alla pineta di Castiglioncello, grande scelta di vini e bollicine . Il locale ha uno spazio interno che comunque ha bellissime vetrate sul mare . Lo spazio più bello ma troppo stretto che costeggia tutta la parete lato mare, è quasi a strapiombo sul mare e ci sono una ventina di tavoli più o meno grandi . Consigliato l'aperitivo con vista a strapiombo sul mare al tramonto.”

Pizza Place
“La Barrocciaia makes excellent sandwiches, but the typical local sandwich is the so-called "5 & 5", chickpea flour made like a savory pie inside a hot, salt-free bread. The addition of black pepper and aubergines is recommended! PS: Gagarin is the best in the world to do "5 & 5"!”
