A firm delightful family favourite especially when in a large group, with pizza served on wooden racks placed on the table and raised up. They'll bring you a selection of many square pizzas - a true pizza feast. We, and our Italian relatives, visit every time we're staying in Rapallo, which is a 15 - 25 minute drive away. If... More

Every time we are in Zoagli/Chiavari we go to this restaurant. Love the pizza!!! Really, really good!!! Have read the reviews about being expensive but I really do not think so. Believe me when I say this is one of the good pizzas we have had in Italy.

While staying in the small town of Zoagli, we were told to stop in at Le Cisterne by a local, and we were happy we did. The place is charming and has a lovely bright glass room out front. The service is perfect, with helpful waiters. We started with a meat and cheese plate that was delicious, and then ordered... More

Whenever we want a nice restaurant with a friendly atmosphere we go (my husband and I) or with friends to this restaurant. Last time we ate a meter (one meter) of pizza, for 5 people. It is always delicious. We enjoyed it
