“Not a bad choice!”
Review of Osteria Cantarana

Osteria Cantarana
Ranked #45 of 80 Restaurants in Levanto
Restaurant details
Reviewed 9 November 2017

We did not know anything about the restaurants in Levanto, and as we just strolled along the streets close to the beach we noticed the Osteria Cantarana and decided to give it a try. It was not a bad choice at all! The fried anchoivies (a personal favorite) were awesome! The beef was also cooked very nicely. Wine was not expensive at all, all in one very convenient. The athmosphere was lacking any vibe, it looked like all the tired tourists just wanted to eat quietly. Not bad actually, it depends on your mood!

The menu options suggested this place has pretensions to be very good but isn't quite there yet. We started with delicious carpaccio polpe, then one fried fish - quite ordinary and some pasta with mussels and courgette flowers - OK. Gorgeous choc cake for dessert.

The place was quite empty when we arrived for lunch, maybe we should have taken it as a sign... We ordered and got some bread quite quickly. But then we waited over 35 minutes for our meal. During our stay in Levanto we have had many positive service experiences, this was the opposite. The food came eventually and it was mediocre to say the least. I had penne with mussels, which looked ok and tasted ok, but my intuition said it was canned mussels, not fresh! Later I had a stomach ache, which proved my point, since I can only eat fresh seafood.

e forse può causare qualche malessere.

We enjoyed an appetizer of haddock and then Beef Tortuga (steak in truffle wine reduction sauce) and stuffed rabbit with vegetables. They were both fantastic choices - very tasty. Finished the meal off with Dark Chocolate Cake and of course Cappuccino. Price was reasonable and service was very good. Highly recommend this restaurant.

We had a perfectly good meal here but it seemed to lack a bit of atmosphere. We have no particular criticisms, it just wasn't quite as good as some of the other places we ate in Levanto.
