Well maybe a high average. First of all the setting is superb looking down on Moneglia and its bay. The staff are friendly enough on first acquaintance. The atmosphere is a little cold. The set menu arrives slowly with little comment. The emphasis was on fish which I prefer but I was not wowed by any course in particular. All... More

It begins with a ride up switchback trails high up the town mountainside, a walk into a classic (like out of a movie) small stone building that ambles along the mountainside, soft lights, a wood burning fire, lovely lounge and spectacular tables with views of the city and the sea. Then you are seated, then the food marathon begins so... More

Very good food, and huge portions, we did not finish all the food. Check the fixed menu for the day on the phone. The restaurant is on the hill of Moneglia, pick up option from the owner is really helpful!

Weliked a lot, but you need to buy a set menu and that was too much. The view is amazing The staff is very friendly. If you are with kids you can buy 3 menus for 4, but as said even that is too much. But i still recommend to go.

Many years ago this restaurant was probably a fine place to eat. Today they where not even close,sadly... Tripadvisor app presents only the best reviews on top - be aware. These where from 2014... Taste and presentation of the dish was indelicate. The seafood was killed with mayo and lack of spice... Lobster was over-cooked... With a fixed menu of... More

Although this restaurant is well known, the offering was a diluted version of various european dishes and suffered from being neither truly italian or truly international. the quality of the food was above average but certainly not top class.

This restaurant deserves the highest level of praise for the delicious food they serve and the friendliness of the owner. We, two families with 3 kids each, had a splendid dinner and it’s noteworthy that the chef gave special attention to our kids and even involved them in the preparation of some handmade pasta. Thanks to that and to the... More

This was an amazing dining experience. The staff were as smmoth and professional, the chef patron very informatiev and a lot of care had gone into producing a vegetarian menu for my husband and I. If you eat fish, this is a place to go to - thought the crayfish was served in a rather alarming manner.
