Like so often with traditional Italian restaurants, you should be arriving starving. The amounts of food could be a problem, but not for everyone. Very tasty local Ligurian dishes and very good service. Well worth a visit!

All Ligurian mountain food specialties. Bring your appetite and ask for the sampler for antipasti caldi e freddi and all pastas. If you have room get the wild boar or hare. No joke lunch. Excellent for the type of place it is.
