Cheap and cheerful. Good for a quick lunch. Service seems very friendly and food is good. Nothing spectacular but fills you stomach with wholesome food

We were 4 people and all of us ordered different main dishes. As a group coming from Turkey, from the heart of good food, it is very difficult for us to like any food. Here, we liked each food we ordered and did not regret our choice at all. Very friendly people, very nice service and very nice environment. The... More

This restaurant is more for the locals than for the tourists, and there were no English menu available. The staff were a bit rushed, and could have tried a bit harder to explain the dishes. But we managed by using Google, our dear friend in need. We enjoyed the food, it was solid and well tasting. Worth the visit, and... More

After reading the reviews of this place, we got pretty much what we excpected. Good, solid well tasting food. Service friendly, but nothing extraordinary. One of the oldest restaurants, if not the oldest, in Rapallo, it's not for the snobbish food-lover, but a nice dive into the local ligurian kitchen. Well Worth a visit.

No Italian allow to serve this kind of food. Overcooked, burned pork, cold food. Service is terrible, take with pleasure money for all the services, they lack to provide.

We went here because the reviews stressed the food and the prices. Well, the food was okay and the fixed menu was just 10 Euros but we found other places far better in Rapallo. The place is a bit tired but it is comfy. Food was okay but the portions were a bit meager. Staff was okay but not above... More

Small restaurant in old part of town. We sat at outside table which was very scrappy. Waiter more interested in chatting to girls than serving us. Food was ok from average menu. Would not go again

Sitting outside in one of the oldest streets in Rapallo, we tasted delicious food and wine, typically Ligurian. Great atmosphere and friendly service. Very tasty anchovies, mussels and prawns for starters and pansotti in walnut sauce and pesto lasagne, washed down by delicious local wines. Highly recommend.

Three streets back from the sea front and used by the locals, this is reassuringly genuine, complete with robust local red wine. No fancy frills. We sat next to 2 old ladies just having coffee. I ate the best sword fish steak ever; cooked to the moment, with lightly griddled vegetables. My wife ate one of the pasta + seafood... More
