This is the kind of restaurant you can only find in small cities in Italy. The powerhouse in the kitchen is the mother, doing the cooking, washing up, and even coming out and entertaining customers when it takes her fancy. The menu is classic seaside ligurian cuisine.

Living in Milan, this has become one of our favorite restaurants near the sea. The reason we keep returning is the excellent care taken by the owner (the chef) and her son (the wine expert and server.) The food is always fresh, well prepared and tasty!

Here you will find the wonderful essence of Liguria: high quality products carefully prepared in a beautiful old house and served with genuine enthusiasm and sincere hospitality. There is so much emphasis these days on change and the new. It is worth preserving the traditions and experiences of the past-the good ones, of course. Mother has been running the kitchen... More

I have been visiting the small and beautiful town of Celle Ligure recently. Some local friends advised to visit the Mose restaurant among the dozen available in the old town.

Mosé, with mamma Franca and son Riccardo, is a superbly enjoyable restaurant. Franca's Ligurian food, naturally including fresh seafood, is so deliciously tasty. Riccardo is a master in pairing his extensive wine cellar, with well-selected local, regional as well as all-Italian wines. As just an example, for dessert, he offered a selection of FIVE most interesting dessert wines. The attractive... More

You immediately sense that this is a family managed restaurant. Franca prepares typical Ligurian dishes and her son Riccardo is a Master of Wine. It only holds 30/40 people so a reservation is advisable enjoy your meal!

Description
A Story Started Far In The Past "Mose" is the nickname of the ancient Rebagliati family, and it takes its origin from the tradion of calling the families with disparate kind of names. The name "Mose" was given in the second half of the 19th century to Giovanni Rebagliati, great-great-grandfather of the actual owner of the Restaurant. In the cold autumnal nights, while pressing the olives in his mill, Giovanni used to read the Holy Bible, becoming enthusiast whenever he spoke about Moses, the "the child saved from the waters". This comfortable place was originally the Chapel of the Avogadro Palace (built in the 18th century). The Restaurant is equipped with first-class, "Neapolitan Baroque" furniture, conditioned and purified air; the places are approximately 30, to give the customers the best service and comfort. The "Mose" Restaurant has been owned by Rebagliati family since June 1977 and is the right place to enjoy wonderful dishes prepared by Franca, Mario Rebagliati's wife, who, in respect of the traditions, proposes the typical, mediterranean cooking of LIGURIA. The Olive-Oil comes from the "Riviera di Ponente" (the west coast of Ligury), as the fresh fish, while the prawns come from Santa Margherita or Oneglia. The fried delicate "spunciacurrente" and little squids are the Restaurant's pride. To customers who prefer meat dishes, the Restaurant "Mose" is able to propose authentic and original italian products. We would like to mention amongst the first dishes -> si propongono paste condite con pesce o con il nostro pesto alla genovese, il cui ingrediente principale e il basilico di Pra. With at least one day of notice, you will be able to taste the "ciuppin alla ligure": the fish soup traditionally cooked by the ancient families of Celle. We should advise you reserve a little space for our traditional Desserts, like the "Creme Brulee" or the "Tarte Tatin". The menus are served with high-quality, Italian wines, both red or white, coming from all the Italian Regions.
