This restaurant is exactly what you would expect given its sea front location. We had done a lot of walking and returned to Rapallo looking for an early dinner. This is one of the few places that was open for this.

Lady who served us was a bit crazy but lovely. Food was acceptable but mussels were good. Wine we chose was good but overpriced.

Don't be desperate to eat here but if you are passing and in need of a decent meal it's fine.

Avoided this place on several evenings as I found the host at the door a little bit pushy. Finally gave in one evening as my daughter wanted a chicken dish which is hard to find in most restaurants.
I ordered a chicken pasta dish in a spicy sauce. Chicken was bland, pasta was not freshly made and sauce thick and definitely not spicy. If an Italian restaurant in Italy can't perfect a pasta dish it so for itself. My husband and daughter's dishes were fine but nothing exceptional.
Wish I had stuck to my guns and kept on walking!

We ate here three times during our week in Rapallo, everything was of a superior quality. Waiters were personable, attentive, prompt and helpful. Of course the Head waiter is ebullient and a bit of a ham, but if you find this sort of light hearted reverie distasteful you really should reconsider Italy as a holiday vacation. Furthermore he looks like my mate Jimmy and has the best sideburns since Mungo Jerry's Ray Dorsett. In short, a thoroughly enjoyable experience.

We arrived to this restaurant for a late lunch, as we found another one we were recommended closed (our boat arrived at 2.30pm from Portofino). So we found only some restaurants along the promenade opened.
They look all similar and clearly oriented to tourists as the choices are many.
Restaurant very clean, clean towels and a good impression of order. Guys on the table were kind.
We took one risotto frutti di mare, one spaghetti al cartoccio and one spaghetti al pesto. The spaghetti were well cooked al dente, risotto a bit less. All the plates were very salty (this also has been confirmed by the waiter, as we were not the only).
In summary, the food was acceptable even it was not the kind of restaurant we were looking for (we wanted a typical local restaurant, with local people, local chef and not predominantly oriented to tourist). The overall rating is sufficient (despite a bit expensive, but aligned with the other restaurants), but we will not go back again
