If you arrive either from the sea or walking...in 2 seconds, you will forget where you are. There is no crowded beach here or noisy people shouting...a small beach with a few beds, a tiny restaurant with delicious food. The only problem of Cala Loca? Need really to book in advance!

Spectacular location on a small private beach at the bottom of a flight of steps from the main road. Lobster linguine, sharing appetiser of seafood and the Ligurian speciality of trofie with pesto all outstanding. Friendly and casual service complements the casual setting. I would skip the coffee.

This is a must if you go to Cogoleto. We had this recommended and we would not have booked a table if we were not told to go by a local friend. It is not such a big place a bit our of the way - so do yourself a favor and book a table. This fish restaurant is located... More
