The story about Romano Franceschini and his family is one that is really worth telling. A story that spans half a century. An inextricable story that is woven between the seaside resort of Viareggio and an idea of cuisine that is highly respectful of the past and traditions and just as forthright in its constant evolution, care and research, taste and mastery, elegance and respect. These are the past and present values that continue to guide the work of Romano, his wife Franca in the kitchen, assisted by young Andrea Papa, and his son Roberto in the dining room. Their strong sense of hospitality and the excellent quality of their cuisine (capable of enhancing the finest products on the Tuscan Coast, with creativity and skill) have succeeded in winning over many admirers over the years, who have thus chosen this restaurant as their privileged place for pleasure and refinement. So these dishes, mostly with shellfish, molluscs and noble fish, together with Romano’s affability and the impressive selection of wines – handled passionately by Roberto, a well-known sommelier – continue to recount their wonderful story day after day.
