Luckily, the Restaurant where we first wanted to go, was closed. So we found this Little Family run Restaurant. The owner was so nice to us. We talked a Little bit, he recommended us a very good wine. The straters were good, but the mains were amazing. The Pasta vongole was amazing, as well as the pesto. Wow, thumbs up.

My husband and I had diner there and we really enjoyed the place and the food. Everything was good and fresh. Prices were low and we highly recommended it. Only 6 tables: do not hesitate to book in advance.

This place is the real deal! The service is authentic, but it's a bit slow as it appears to be a family run business. The food is lovingly prepared and plated professionally! My starter of the fish and shrimp lasagne was exquisite! As was the cod ravioli my wife had! Unfortunately the main courses didn't quiet measure up to the... More

Really liked eating here. The owner is a super cool guy who gave us great recommendations of the typical seafood for the La Spezia region, plus an interesting take on tiramisu for dessert. Reasonably priced and nice dining experience. Omar

We chose this restaurant as it was so close to our hotel and because of the reviews. It was great. Yes it is very small but that makes it very homely. The host is lovely, friendly, helpful, and relaxed. The menu is small but all of it is simple superbly cooked local fare. We all had seafood options. Sword Fish... More

Amazing service, awesome food, great location! Can't say enough good things about this restaurant. The lasagna and risotto where particular hits with our family and the steak I had was the best I've had in Italy so far! Definitely recommend this resturant

We had a fabulous seafood meal here with great service and at a great price. The grilled prawns were outstanding and the sweets delicious. The menu is simple but has enough choice to suit all. The selection of wines suited the menu and we had a terrific Cinque Terre wine recommended that complimented the seafood well. Highly recommend this spot.

We had a dinner in this restaurant and loved everything about it. Place is owned by a couple where wife makes the food and husband takes care of guests. He was very kind and explained a lot about the dishes and house wine was good too. Deserts were delicious with a local touch. Looking forward to come back some day!
