My family of 6 (including a 10 yr old and two teens) arranged to do a cooking class with Simona at the restaurant. When we arrived she had a place set for each of us complete with aprons. We had an amazing time making three kinds of pasta and also pesto. Each of us loved every moment of it. Afterwards we ate the pasta we made along with several other local favorites that were so delicious. We ate until we thought we'd have to roll back to our ship. Simona and her husband were fun and gracious hosts. It was a easily a highlight of our cruse week - our entire vacation. We will always remember it!

We were recommended by our host to dine there and it was really delicious and the price wise is very reasonable. Raviolis very good n pesto is very tasty , we were told to eat mussels for which this region is famous for n they cooked very simple but yet done so well , very good indeed!

We felt very welcomed, Simona and her husband are wonderful hosts. The hostaria is situated above La Spezia with a wonderful view of the city. I recommend the muscles (cozze) for both the primo and secondo, the small cozze served with the homemade tagliatelle were delicious. Also had the antipasto with the fried baccala which was perfectly fried and very light. I can't wait for my next trip to La Spezia to return the Secondini and would recommend a visit for a great meal.

My husband and I recently took the cooking class here and it was one of our most memorable moments on our Italian vacation. Simona was a wondeful teacher and the pasta and pesto we prepared was delicious. The highlight was the unexpected way we were served our creations following the class. We were treated as very special guests where we were asked to get washed up following the pasta prep, seated in the dining room and then graced with many different courses of INCREDIBLE Italian cuisine, sone if which of course included our pasta and pesto from the class, but many other delicious accompaniments. Such a memorable experience, and we were sent home with aprons, recipes and wondeful memories.

We stopped in at Secondini before they were open
The host was very kind to us, asked us to sit and have a glass of wine while we waited for our friend.
When we returned that night we enjoyed a delicious meal, the ravioli were absolutely fantastic, freshly made and delicately flavoured.
Simone, the chef recommended a local red wine that went well with the meal.
I heartily recommend making a trip there, taste real home style cooking.
