We went there as a family of four, 2 adults, two children without a booking. I could not fault this. It's a long time since I saw somewhere that cared so much about what they do. And the food was outstanding. Re commend wholeheartedly

Despite having not booked, we were swiftly shown to a table. Serving staff were very attentive and I enjoyed a tasty, generously portioned, tri-colour salad as my starter. My main was a lovely Margherita pizza. I'd give it 8/10, my personal preference is stone baked...More

We took our granddaughter early Friday evening and had a very pleasant meal. The staff were excellent and the food was good with generous portions. It wasn't the best Italian food we've had but it was good and we will return.

We had a nice dinner here. We stayed at Tullie in but compared to the restaurant there we were much more happy with the visit at Cecina. Good service, nice food and they have a nice small selection of gins.

It would depend on the time of day, I was there early evening and did not have to book but later may require a booking, best idea would be to phone and ask.

Hi, yes I recommend booking. At present we are a small restaurant with only 14 tables so we book out fast, especially at the weekends and Sunday is popular with families and friends. Hope to see you then. Many thanks, Jason... More
