Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Me and my Wife were on Vacation celebrating our 50th Anniversary and through the recommendation of our Driver, we decided to go there for Lunch. It was one of the Highlights of our entire trip to Italy & France. The food was outstanding. The Focaccia...to start with is super thin and Fantastic. We both had Pasta in Pesto and Branzino that were fantastic. We also enjoyed a great bottle of Gavi wine. The deserts were also excellent. We wanted to go back for Dinner but we were staying in Santa Margherita. The Owner & Staff was Super nice. It was one of our Favorite Restaurants on our Vacation to Italy & France. This is a must Restaurant to go to. Thank you for making our 50th Anniversary Celebration so Special.More

We’ve gone to this place many times. The food is always spectacular and so is the service. Same waiter year on year who treats all customers exceptionally well.

I can’t recommend this ristorante and osteria enough! We went there twice. The first time we haden’t booked a table but fortunately they had a table for us in the osteria. We had a wonderful evening. The waiter was very nice with a great sense...of humor. The second time we had booked a table T the restauran in advance. Coincidentally (we think) we got the same waiter as the first night and that made us very happy. The food both times was excellent and the Ligurian Vermentino white wine recommended by our waiter was spot-on!! If you ever find yourself in Recco, or in the surroundings, do not hesitate to go to this wonderful place! You won’t regret it.More

O' Vittorio is a true institution in Recco and in the area in general. Is a big, elegant restaurant with various areas, an appearance of established elegance and an army of waiting staff. My waiter, Daniele, was truly excellent. The focaccia is a benchmark thus...out of discussion; the trofie alla paesana were ok but frankly speaking I had better pesto elsewhere in Liguria. The anchovies a la Vittorio were rather good and delicate. Excellent white wine recommended by Daniele. Not cheap but overall a satisfying experience.More

We were late last time we went in Camogli and was a terrible evening with heavy rain. We knew that in Camogli we coudn't be able to find an open resturant so we dicided to look for it in Recco. We came to O'Vittorio where...there was a night event with a chef form Carloforte. Unfortunately we were late so we did not have the chance to eat from his menu but we choose our dishes a la carte. Mushrooms were finished so we had some pizzata, stuffed anchovies alla Vittorio and meat with artichoke. A very good bottle of Pigato end Tiramisù dessert at the end. Everything was very nice. The resturant is elegant and has lot of place.More

We had lunch with some other travelers and were very impressed with the food and the service. We had dry white wine, bread sticks and focaccia bread and then had a demonstration of how their focaccia with cheese specialty was made. Fortunately we were then...served a plateful as it was delicious. That was followed by stuffed eggplant pieces and a green salad. We finished with chocolate cookie balls filled with rum flavored chocolate. Oh my. If I ever came back to this area I would definitely return to this restaurant.More

Waiter was nice and friendly and atmosphere was cozy - even though there were a lot of flies. I ordered the Orata fish with with black truffle. Unfortunately it was served without truffle, leaving it without much taste - after complaining I was told they...were out of truffle. I would have appreciated that info when ordering. House white wine was a tasteless and flat affair. No reduction in the bill for serving “the wrong food”. Not coming back here and will recommend other places in the area with better service and food. I was tempted to give this restaurant 2 of 5, but ended on a kind 3.More
