We liked it so much that we went there three nights in a row. The Restaurant was full, but the manager always found a place for the two of us. What a treat. Lots of seafood, and lots of local people.

We were a group of 13 - a mix of Australians, English and a lone American. Tough audience too! Very keen on their food and wine, but no Italian (except for me), and dealing with a waiter who had no English. Things got off to a great start with some seafood antipasti, then everyone ordered their own main courses. The... More

One of the best restaurant we visited in Italy. Super friendly hosts, and marvelous seafood! Take the big appetizer plate, the fish of day and the house wine. It's just a fairytale!

We arrived in La Spezia late in the evening after a stressful travel day, and this restaurant was the perfect place to brighten our moods. We were greeted by the owner, who made great recommendations for food and checked in with us frequently throughout the night. The portions were very generous, the seafood fresh and flavorful, and the overall experience... More

We had dinner here a few years ago and loved it. This time we visited at lunchtime and were struck by the same features. The restaurant was busy and we were the only tourists. In fact most of the clientele looked like locals having their lunch. We were made most welcome, as if we had been there many times, and... More

Really great food Spaghetti with clams/white wine based and tiramisu were the pic Plenty of locals there which is always a great sign Lovely host/owner My hubby isn't a great fan of seafood and there were plenty of (just as great) food for him . He had the veal with lemon based sauce. Great food without the fussy stuff.

I used to work in La Spezia 35 years ago, and first discovered La Nuova Spezia then. When we visit, we stay in Lerici (packed with restaurants) but always come in to La Spezia to eat here. The welcome is friendly, the food is tremendous, and very much shows some of the best of the local cuisine. We visited again... More

Initially I was hesitant to go to this restaurant as the reviews made it sound gimmicky. I was wrong. It was a very memorable experience for me. in fact it was the highlight of my trip in Italy. Compared to restaurants in other Italian cities I've been to, this was the best experience and service I've had. As you know,... More
