We had an amazing dinner at this restaurant. Every course was delicious and the waiter was really nice and polite. If we'll ever have the chance to go there again, we will!

This was our preferred restaurant (stayed at the CDH Hotel) We liked eating at the small terrace and appreciated the effort of the friendly staff to prepare the excellent food and drinks for a reasonable price. It is a busy place, so make sure you make a reservation.

If you are asian, just forget about coming to this restaurant that you could never get any seats. Me and my friends simply got rejected for no reasons (the restaurant was empty when we were there), and they claimed the whole summer is full when we wanted to reserve a dinner slot.

The owner of our B&B recommended this restaurant to us and we were very happy with the food and excellent service! It is an intimate little gem down a small street off the main shopping drag. We were treated to free bubbly and appetisers upon arrival and thoroughly enjoyed three courses and a bottle of wine, all within walking distance... More

We booked the place since noon, and when we were here at 7:30PM, we figured out we were the first group here~(Of course later full table occupied). The staff was very friendly, introducing us the food and wine. The white wine came from center Italy , Toscana, with the fish soup and duck leg, I felt very satisfied. Also ,... More

As long-term expats we're well past jaded with small, romantic Italian restaurants (generally avoid them like the plague, actually), but we had generally good and interesting food here. Granted, the lobster gnocchi was characterized by a liberal display of entirely decorative bits of lobster shell, but the whole meal was fresh, well-made, and worth a visit. The waiter spoke english... More

We lucked out and got the only table not reserved! While eating, 4 couples were turned away very disappointed because there were no more tables. This little 10 table restaurant is a dinning experience open, on the night we went, from only 7-10 pm. No table turn over. We dined for 3 hours without being rushed. The waiter was a... More

We were walking around looking for a place to have dinner, until I decided to look for help at the Trip Advisor app... Problem solved... we chose this delightful restaurant where we enjoy a delightful dinner, great dinner, and great price. We highly recommend it.

Thoroughly enjoyable experience, which we found thanks to the reviews on Trip Advisor rating the restaurant number 1 in La Spezia. We fortunately arrived to be seated at the last available table for two. We found a delightful host who was running the front of house on his own whilst one chef worked the kitchen. Normally this would concern you... More

After doing all of our homework in the hotel room, we left the map behind and had no Internet so it was just kismet that we ended up finding Bayon which had been our destination. I don't know how, but we lucked out getting the last seat without a reservation and as we ate we saw couple after couple turned... More
