Gloria is a very nice, unpretentious typical Italian "osteria". The staff is very friendly, the owner takes your orders because there is no written menu but he is also really, really nice. The food is actually simple, typical Italian, from simple ingredients but sooo delicious, prepared at the spot. We incidently found this place on Tripadvisor (we were looking for something else) and gave it a try but ended eating there two nights in a row. It is crowded (reservations obligatory!) with locals, which is also a good sign. Another great thing is that the owner, after he understood that we wanted to try as many dishes as possible, offered to serve half- servings stating that was no problem at all! And so we managed to try a number of dishes, all great, no matter whether they were sea food or meat dishes. However, two of them stood out: spelt with sea food (frutti di mare) and anchovies in the pan, made with exquisite local olive oil and lemon juice! Bravo Gloria! And yes, excellent rapport between value and cost!

Two local (Pub and Restaurant) in one, but ... in two different rooms. In the dining room we have a traditional Mexican cuisine restaurant with more than fifty different dishes, complete fixed-price menu, suitable for all tastes both hot than not! Personalized Children's Menu, Celiac and Vegetarians, a corner of Mexico in Italy, the typical Mexican cuisine is based on only fresh ingredients and original recipes and personally found, the result of our twenty years of research in the country of origin, to eat Mexican or TRUE flights to Mexico or COME to us. The first TAQUERIA room, is, however, a typical Mexican plaza where they serve the best beers on tap as Couffe, Tennents, Hooegaarden, Guinness, etc. birree also bottled Mexican craft, and you can taste many varieties of tacos and Mexican food from street to street, but also enchiladas, tortas and quite elaborate dishes like ceviche and Tinga Poblano, also there are some types of sandwiches and sizes of burgers, up to 1 kg, made with fresh minced meat on their own, to cocktails and drinks and much more, to try, you will be satisfied.
To be able to enjoy a varied taste in foods away from the typical local cucine was nice. It is a nice option in a place where Pizza rules.

We had an evening meal at the Venezia - I chose the large seafood starter, which came as a series of different plates, some nicer than others (had the option been available we would probably have rated this as a 3.5 star meal, but it would have seemed mean to give only three stars). Of the starters, the octopus in tomato sauce was particularly good. The portion sizes overall are large, so you need to be careful what you order.
There's outdoor Seating accessible through the restaurant - the night we were there this was a lot busier than indoors.

It's really quite small, and it's right on the road. The Seating is trestle benches. But we had pizza and pasta here and everything came out very good. The house wine was a lively white that we all enjoyed. It was the best eating we found in a week of eating out around Ameglia and Marina di Carrara. Service was quick and the Waitstaff is sweet. I had my doubts when we first entered, but they disappeared quickly. It was also less expensive than most of the places we ate at.

Tradizionale Irish Pub e Ristorante con cucina a base di pesce. Il miglior luogo per gustare un' ottima birra e per passare le tue serate in compagnia dei tuoi amici.
The service was faultless and the food delicious.
We ordered tuna salad, seafood lasagne, lobster ravioli and a side of vegetables with water and half a bottle of wine. All very pleasant. The surprise for us was that the side of "vegetables" was in fact salad veg!
Reasonably priced and centrally located, we can certainly recommend.
We chose to sit outside bad there was some noise at times from the play park behind.

Our kitchen is all a game of contrasts of flavors, colors and shapes, against the uniform background of rice, main food. "Come and try the rice" is literal translation of the classic lunch invitation. Triumph meat, fish and crustaceans, combined with quick cooking in the wok with crispy sprouts, peanuts, coconut, red and green chillies more or less flaming. But what makes the difference with other oriental kitchens is above all the use of herbs that exalt the freshness of the ingredients rather than the spices that tend to cover them. So great use of coriander, dill, velvety basil, peppermint, pandanus leaves, betel, mustard, citronella. And then garlic, onion, shallot, lime and cedar make it a healthy food for the freshness and genuineness of the ingredients. Each dish is also presented with art. Just think about the carving techniques of the food, a test bed of every aspiring chef. If it is true that a people's food is a language that does not need translation, it will serve many people to feel the closest Thailand
We travelled a long way to eat here, based on the excellent reviews posted. We were very disappointed to find the restaurant shut on Monday evening. We couldn't see any opening hours notice at the restaurant, so had to go away hungry. Perhaps we will try another day.

Ignore the owners bad mood (about 90% of the time) because the food is good and prices are okay. You came here for food, not good manners, right? :)

Stopped here while returning from Florence as my wife wanted seafood and this restaurant has the best reviews. The owner was awesome in accomodating our kids and us with the menu choices. Food was good, presentation was nice. Desserts were just ok. I had the tagliata beef steak, very good served on a layer of radish on a separate tray. Ravioli are made the olden style like my grandma used to make them and are super tasty.

Locals and tourists alike will not be disappointed in the meal or service. Try the local wine: Vino Frizzante di Bosoni. It is very light, refreshing, slightly effervescent and went well with the seafood. Dinner for ten with wine, appetizers,mains, contorni and desserts came to $360! Amazing! We were with family, so we had no trouble with the menu, but the chef speaks English. The waiters try their best too! It gets busy on a Saturday, so you may need Reservations.

Food is excellent, good prices, good wine, very affordable. Linguine alla vongole is to die for as well as their tiramisu. The restaurant can improve a little in their waiter service, it takes a while for them to take your order. Other than that it is fabulous.
