We were in town for the Friday Market and found this restaurant right on the main street where the market is. The menu was in Italian and French and the staff spoke very little English but we were able to work it out as most English-speaking people know about Italian food names and what they are. They had good size... More

We enjoyed a good meal, good wine and good service. The menu covers most tastes. It is not too expensive what else could you want?

The service was slow and the food mediocre, the position of the café is central but parking is a nightmare.

I visited on a Saturday lunchtime. This is one of the best budget Italian restaurants I have visited in Ventimigula . I had a Neapolitan Pizza and a half litre of wine. The service was immediate and very welcoming with a great sense of Italian humour! The price was significantly lower than on the French side of the border. The... More

Classic Italian restaurant where the food is good- particularly the Pizza. It is authentic and am surprised by the person who said it was bland. We have eaten here four times and never found it bland.

Good food, poor service, a nice location but when presented with a bottle of water at the start of your meal which was quickly opened and not ordered, you will be charged €4 and then find you are also having to pay €3 cover charge per person, Overall a very disappointing experience which was and never will be repeated

We had a few hours of layover in Ventimiglia waiting for our train to Milan. We decided to have lunch in Ventimiglia and, since all yelp's suggested restaurants were closed, we decided for the Giara. Boy we were lucky! I ordered a grilled Orata (fish) and it was one of the best in my life; I then ordered a handmade... More

It was a Wednesday and our favourite restaurant in Ventimiglia was closed. Gently ambling back and looking for somewhere we decided on La Giara. There was an extensive blackboard menu as well as being offered menus in Italian, or French, or English so plenty of opportunity to chose, as well as plenty of choice. Good starters of Salmon Carpaccio were... More
