Testa e Lische Cafè: Don't miss the Fantasia Vegetariana
This place is awesome, they mostly have fresh fish courses, but of course i had a vegetarian one.
It's cheap, by the beach, they serve good wine and people are really laid back
Favorite Dish: please come and enjoy local fish specialties from Livorno
BARACCHINA MAURI: aperitivo at Mauri
THIS SUMMER A LOT OF PEOPLE GATHER AT THIS "BARACCHINA" ON THE PROMENADE BY VIALE ITALIA, YOU CAN HAVE AN APERTIVO OR FOOD OR DRINKS, IT'S JUST A PLACE WHERE A LOT OF PEOPLE THIS YEAR ARE HANGING OUT.
La Rondinella: La Rondinella
this is my friend Simona's boyfriend's restaurant
it's mainly fresh fish, haute cuisine, that is
they also have a selection of vegetarian courses
Favorite Dish: they have both red (from tuscan, puglie and sicily) and white (from Trentino, Veneto) wines
In Vernice restaurant/wine bar: Don't miss the pappardelle con funghi e tartufo!
i LOOOOVE this place.. they have typical and sophisticated foods like "vellutata di fave con tortino di patate e porri", Pappardelle with porcini mushrooms and truffle and
they have a good selection of wines..
Luna Rossa: Pizza al metro
oh these Napolitans make the best pizza i ever tasted in my whole life!!
It is 1 meter long and u can share with your friends and choose 3 different flavours, so that u et 3 pieces each and maybe u can have 3 different flavours
whatever u prefer
Da Gagarin: DON'T MISS THEIR DELICIOUS CINQUE E CINQUE!
this is an all the time favourite for the local people!
They only make Cinque e Cinque, the chick peas pie
but it's sooooooo good
they also have this spuma bionda which tastes like guaranà, my fave brasilian drink!
Favorite Dish: the owners are very rude ( in funny way) to each other and friendly with the customers, they yell at each other all the time
they are hilarious
i have so much fun when i go there
this is open from the morning till about 8pm
Da Giovanni: Don't miss the panino of Giovanni!
This is a local place, who had been run in Via Ricasoli for many many years and made the best paninos in town. Now it moved and the nephew runs the new place. It's still as good but it has a more local atmosphere now.
Go check this out!
Favorite Dish: My fave, as usual, is panino vegetariano, but u can have whatever u want inside the panino
Pizzeria Via Magenta: Don't miss the Ciccioni!
i love going here for pizza or Cinque e Cinque. This very small place is run by two fat brothers with supertick eye brows and they are very funny but sound like very illiterate hahha they are cool as sh*t
you'll have to be prepared for a low digestion after seeing the 2 guys ahahah just kidding:P
Banda Del Panino: huge sandwiches to take away
if u are coming from the beach in Tirrenia, north of Livorno and wanna have something to eat instead of the Mc Donald's, even before u board your ferry to Sardinia or Corsica, you should come over here.
It's open all year round, from the evening till late at night, they make HUGE sandwiches and all sorts of burgers + fries.
This place is where no tourist would go, but it's good just cos it's so local you don't find it on any guide!
Favorite Dish: my fave is panino vegetariano of course, but you have so manyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy to choose from
tomei: don't miss the Focaccia with eggplants!
this is a must if you come to Livorno. It's 1 minute walk from Antignano Beach, it's kind of big but it's all the time crowded cos Livorneses love dining here. You can also take away and go to eat at the beach in Sale or Moletto di Antignano, where most people gather during summer evenings and nights
Favorite Dish: these people make pizzas and focaccias
my fave focaccia is the one with eggplants.
The true recipe u wanna eat is "focaccia with prosciutto crudo e melanzane".
this places looks OLD but the owners just don't care about renovating the furniture cos it's just typical and the way Livornese people love it
very informal and mellow people
if you wanna have a taste of real livornese cuisine, you shouldn't miss going to this restaurant. They mostly have fish course, but even vegetarian and meat ones.
They'll give you generous portions.. and very very good quality
Favorite Dish: My fave is antipasto vegetariano, which is a HUGE starter and then Pappardelle ai Funghi Porcini ( home made pasta with Porcini mushrooms)
My brother usually goes here once a week and he's speaking all the time about their shrimps, lobsters, and fresh fishes
sighieri: don't miss the Cinque e Cinque
hey this is one specialty from our city.
it's called Cinque and Cinque and it's a chick pea pie, which is also made in Liguria under the name of Farinata.
We call it Cinque (=Five) and Cinque (=Five) cos in ancient times poor people used to eat 5 cents of this check pea pie and 5 cents of bread. so it's now Five and Five.
Favorite Dish: This Pizzeria makes both great pizzas and supergood Cinque e Cinque. it's the best in town!
Il Germoglio: Don't miss their Carpaccio di Tofu!
this is my fave cheap restaurant in livorno.
I've been going there for more than 10 years, and they keep cooking really well.
They change their meny daily, so that people who wanna go more than just one in a while, can savour different things.
They cook both italian recipes and indian recipes.
The atmosphere is very relaxing, with nice ethnik music,and once in a while they organize meetings to talk about problems in the world like poverty in poor countries, abandoned animals and so on.
I love to hang out here especially during the summer, after a day at the beach, u can come here and sit in their garden and enjoy the stars.
Favorite Dish: my fave dish is Carpaccio di Tofu. It's like a huge salad, and instead of cutting pieces of raw meat, like the toscanian tradition wants, they cut pieces of tofu and then theu add raw mushrooms, rucola, a little carrots and parmisan.
I LOVE THISSSSSSSSSS
They cook many "sformati", home made pastas, curry dishes and so on.
Ristorante "La grotta" da Antonio: Enjoying seafood in Livorno
A cosy interior with lots of plants and flowers, giving the restaurant a pleasant and spacious atmosphere.
Favorite Dish: I tried the mixed fried seafood for secondo, and enjoyed it.
The pasta was great, too.
None of us tried the famous Livornese fishsoup - the Cacciucco - this time, but I definitely will next time!
A little disappointment with this restaurant - too many things on the menu they didn't have - included the dessert choices.
