Excellent food for a very reasonable price.

A most enjoyable evening.

We visited Pivot on 11 April. Beautiful restaurant with a great atmosphere. The food was delicious and the service was outstanding. The staff made us feel very welcome with our daughter (who is only aged two) and they moved tables around to accommodate us as we hadn't booked ahead. They also took time to explain the menus and it was clear they were very passionate about their food. Fine dining for a mid-range price. I really hope to visit again one day.

We visited at the very start of the evening service. I would advise booking in advance. The service was the first thing to be noticed. Friendly staff who were accommodating and so enthusiastic about their food. The decor is subtle and warm. You get the feeling of privacy even in a crowded room.

The food was just exemplary. The five course tasting starter was out of this world. Literally a revelation. I would pick a favourite but I cant. It was all wonderful.

The traditional razor clam tagliatelli was next and was rich, delicious and slightly warming. Really excellent focus on complex flavours coming together.

The strawberry tiramisu that followed was so flavourful and a perfect end to a really amazing experience. I would happily visit Viareggio again just to eat here.

We had looked up restaurants in Viareggo near to where we were staying beforehand, this was ideal only being a 10 min walk from our hotel, we were not disappointed the food was delicious and the restaurant warm and welcoming. I had a selection of seafood starter which was presented beautifully followed by Ravioli in a seafood sauce, then finally we ordered tiramisu as we know it! But what we got was a creamy mixture with fresh strawberries and sauce! (Maybe something lost in translation here lol ) but so mouth watering. Final thought - great food and welcoming restaurant.
