We hadn't intended to stop for lunch but we were exploring and it looked interesting, so pleased that we did. We ate on a roof terrace perched above the medieval town. The food is Ligurian in style but with so much more flavour than normal....More

I visited the restaurant in December, it was nice when we got there so we sat outside but then it started pouring on us and our food got soggy and there were no seats available inside.

A lovely restaurant serving traditional Ligurian food - fabulous gnocchi and scallopini followed by chocolate and pear tart and pineapple. A steal for 3 courses, 1/2 litre of vino rosso and coffee for 12 euros a person. Stephanie is English and very friendly and helpful.

We had a very pleasant dinner here -- freshly hand made ravioli with local cheese and truffles. Makes my mouth water just writing about it! The restaurant is also in an amazing location tucked away in a maze of tiny streets in a picturesque hilltop...More
