We go to Rapallo for more than ten years but discovered l'Osteria Vecchio Mulino only two years ago. Since then, we do not leave without having at least one dinner there. So nice the atmosphere, no matter if you sit outside under the gazebo in the garden in August or in the house, near the chimney, on a December evening.... More

Maybe a little hard to find however the food , service , and price will make this place your favorite too . Every year when I come to Rapallo I rent a scooter to move around the area instead of walking . This is not a place that one could walk to so you must drive , ride or hire... More

Yes, wow, the meal, the service, and the setting were superb. The meal is a fixed price, 25 or 30 Euros depending if you have either a primo or secundo or both (30E). It all starts with a fabulous antipasti which for us had 7 different items including stuffed zucchini flowers, a rice with a hint of salmon dish, plus... More

My husband and I ate here twice on our trip to Rapallo. The food was absolutely superb and light years better than the other restaurants we ate at in town. It's clear that an attention to local, fresh ingredients is important and the flavors are positively impacted. I highly recommend the filet with mushrooms, Parma and Melon appetizer and the... More

I visited the restaurant on August 15th, 2016. This is an important bank holiday in Italy when it is typical for families and friends to meet up to catch up generally while having a memorable lunch or dinner. I have been visiting Liguria almost every year in the last 40 but this time we went for the first time at... More

After searching this place and going the wrong way , we finally found a local person who directed us to the right place (address on this website is wrong). Arriving there , the place looks amazing with an old house serving as kitchen and dining room o rainy days and a large yard for other days. The hostess was very... More

We were happy with our meal. My husband and me enjoyed it there. Good quality! Nice people! Good service! Clean! You can order everything in which they are specialized, but not everything!

After a hair raising drive, not me but very narrow and occasionally rough, we were welcomed royally by the staff. Throughout the evening they were attentive, kind and informative without being intrusive. The food was a delight, no written menu but rather it is discussed with you at the table. We were given the choice of English or Italian, choosing... More
