Unusual for Follonica which is not great for restaurants. Three of us, two tuna tartars, one pasta with squid and pistachio, one frito misto, two mixed grilled fish coffe and half a bottle of Morris Farms Vermentino at a very reasonable 99 euros.

Has a really nice wine selection and promising menu. Food was good but did not meet our expectations of taste.

It's located on near the beach of Follonica with a great view over the promenade and the beach if you are seated outside. The inside of the restaurant has a really nice modern interior.

Only one on staff spoke English so while service was great, it took a while until he was available if the waiters didn't understand.

Overall, will definitely try it again.

First visit for luncheon and was pleasantly surprised how good it was in what is a poor town for restaurants. There is an attractive covered terrace overlooking the sea and the interior is comfortable. I began with the raw fish folowed by spaghetti with clams, all were very good and not overly expensive for the quality

We went there with our friends couple of days ago!! The staff was really nice and helpful! As a starter I ate tartare di tonno!! It was amazing with the almond and the fresh ginger taste!! For main course I ate squids stuffed with eggplant and with ricotta flan and gazpacho!! The tastes were amazing together!
The desserts were just awesome, I ate the Sicilian cannoli, it wasn't too sweet it wasn't too sour, it was just perfect! I recommend it to everyone!!!!

Summary - a stylish restaurant with a stunning sea-view serving better than average food.

Food - As noted above better than average. We both had seafood dishes that were well presented, fresh and tasty. While I would not say that any of the dishes were particularly creative, the quality of ingredients were good and fresh. This is a place to get high quality food presented in an uninspired way.

Service - The service was reasonably good but perhaps a bit on the perfunctory side. None of the wait staff seemed to be particularly enthusiastic. Unfortunately the lack of apparent commitment injures the overall impression of the experience.

Ambiance and situation - The restaurant is located on the seafront on the 1st level of a busy promenade side by side with several other (and lesser) restaurants. The view, particularly in the evening is stunning and in our minds worth the visit in spite of the desultory service. The restaurant has a stylish feel both inside and out and is a stand out among the numerous restaurants spread out across the waterfront of Follonica. Go for the view and be sure to book well ahead - this restaurant is well known as it is a big cut above the rest in this painfully holiday-apartment town.
