I have been here several times thru the years, and keep coming back for two main reasons: good seafood and a passionate owner, who anticipates any needs with an eye for every detail. With experience, I boiled down the menu to three or four picks: appetizer - fried octopus on a bed of tomatoes Tuscan bread soup, pasta - spaghetti... More

We stayed one night in Follonica and struggled to find a restaurant. Then we saw this place and decided to give it a go. Very glad we did. Super friendly and polite staff and tasty food.

We were the first customers of the evening and were looking for a good pizza. We got great service and our 2year old got a babychair right away. We had the salami pizza and the house (white) wine. It was great. We asked where the taxi usually were, and they called one up for us right away. lovely little place.

As an American pescatarian, this place is true heaven! Don't miss the panna cotta or chocolate cheesecake for dessert!

Normally, we use tripadvisor to help aide us where we want to eat but this time we stopped at this restaurant due to the large amount of people that were eating there. We figured it was probably good. We were right! We ate fresh fish at good price, liked the atmosphere, and good service. My favorite was the "spaghetti alla... More

The fish of the day was superb, seasoned and cooked to perfection, definitely double thumbs up. The mixed seafood, was ok, the shrimp were large but not really meaty and the squid rated a 3. House salad with olive oild and balsamic was good, the side of grilled vegetables was undercooked and required a good dose of balsamic to consume.... More
