this place has wonderful food, an excellent cook with service that is just right. the quality of the food is outstanding, we have returned here every year when we visit Liguria. Better to reserve on week-ends. Difficult for parking but worth it.

Tasty food for a good price, a place not touched by time and food like it should be. No thrills, no fancy stuff but the right stuff. Real food for a very correct price. We had a taste of the grilled vegetables, the spaghetti a la vongole and the gamba's. All with its own taste and colour. definitely worth a... More

A bit hard to locate but well worth the trouble! We had the pasta with clam sauce and the fresh mozzarella for appetizers-the mozzarella melts in you mouth and the pasta was perfectly al denote with the tenderest clams perfectly seasoned. We shared the Bronzino baked in the sea salt crust again melts in your mouth with perfect seasoning! Staff... More

We have been a couple of times in this Family like Restaurant. Guess the cook is more friendly than the service People which gave us a great laugh. Good Food at reasonable Prices is enough to fill up the small place and still having People to wait outside. I would go there again - the Food is worth to accept... More

We went for a weekend to Finale Ligure and we were advised by a local lady to go this restaurant if we wanted to eat local dishes. It was a very simple place, clean and not very big. It is run by 2 brothers, the problem was when we arrived it was 1.30 pm and apparently they were closing the... More

Those guys probably earned already too much money. If they do not want guests - why they open at all? We've entered at 12:45 on a weekday, low season, seen some tables inside free and heard from a boy working there "tutto prenotato!". Then I ask for outdoor table, but the boy said "arrivoooo.." in such a bored voice that... More

The place is fully booked at the season night after night, it means something, isn't it? We enjoyed both the atmosphere and food. Freshest tuna from local market is excellent both as carpaccio and grilled, seafood soup is the event which will make your dinner unforgettable. Nice selection of wines.

May be the world crisis , may be a wrong evening , but in any case it's not possible to accept that a famous typical fish restaurant of this touristic Ligurian area may fall so dow in the quality. Fish served was really '' antique'' and Owner try to rectify the guest consideration by another suggested dish giving responsability to... More

I was invited to this restaurant and, at first, I thought I would get very regular and unconspicuous food, given the typical appearance of a local trattoria. But I was wrong -- and happily so. First of all, the menu included fish that nowadays one generally does not find in many seafood restaurants, such as fresh anchovies and mackarel. Secondly,... More
