We went there twice this week and had an very good experience both times. The sea food is very good. They have an excellent "mixed grill" with great calamari and shrimp. Very nice local wines. Staff is very helpful and took their time explaining everything

We ended our 8-day stay on the i Lami estate in San Vincenzo a Torri with a farewell meal at this lovely fish restaurant. We had made reservations on their outdoor terrace which proved to be an ideal spot for our family celebration. The service, food and wine were excellent and the portions generous. It seems popular with local people and we highly recommend this restaurant.

We spend the winter in Florence and always make a day trip to Montelupo for the wonderful Ceramics Museum and the small town feel of Montelupo, only 25 minutes by train from the bustle of Florence.
A Florentine friend, a real bon vivant, who travels all over Tuscany for his work, told us about Ostaria Livornese which we may have overlooked without his recommendation. We went to find it this time and it will be our Go To favorite from here on.
The restaurant is pleasantly decorated in a nice palette of colors, nice table settings, soft lighting and attentive service. The menu is primarily seafood and the choices are amazing. They also have a prix fixe menu during the week at lunchtime which is an incredible bargain for what you can order. Either way, regular menu or prix fixe lunch menu, you will love what comes out of that kitchen. We had pasta dishes with fish sauces and then fish and vegetables for the second course.
A good wine list by the glass or bottle. The house made desserts that we saw going by looked divine but we just didn't have room for another bite.
,It was mostly a local clientele who seemed very familiar with the place and the staff. However as outsiders we were treated just like the regulars, appreciated because it's not always the case in small town restaurants where they figure they'll never see you again. This place is now on our radar anytime we make it to Montelupo.
