Without doubt the best we have tasted in Rapallo. A very intimate restaurant, good discreet service and amazing wines and food, and not at silly Portofino prices. A must on your next visit.

The old restaurant where plaster and wooden beams a glimpse of the original features, has been transformed into a stylish restaurant, thus creating an atmosphere which is fully reflected in the cuisine that is offered. Our gastronomic follow the seasonal cycle, drawing all the time, to the extent that they do not offend the tradition, the innovative imagination. Eye-catching and unique dishes, but the denominator of fresh fish and catch. I and my staff are dedicated every day to our work in the belief that the "Eating is not only the necessary nutrients for survival: is an act that can transform in sublime pleasures to share with other people. Rises so a biological act artists of savoir-vivre " ... "As in all the arts, the kitchen is a means to harmony "
