The restaurant is our choice one or twice, when we are in Noli. The cuisine is really the best you can get here, the fresh fish (catch of the day) is shown to you at the table and you can have it prepared in different ways (ligurian style, grilled f.ex.). The restaurant has a nice atmosphere too, families, couples, singles,... More

Everything was of very high quality, antipasti, pasta and fish. The fish was priced per kilo, therefore not very transparent. In our case it came at 39 eur, which seemed a bit expensive for what it seemed a normal sized seabass. For the rest all was perfect, the pasta sauce was very skillfully prepared.

We have been meaning to try this restaurant for many, many years. They have been in the Michelin Guide for as long as we can remember and the black and white photos along the walls confirm it has been part of the town's heritage for a long time. In truth, we again came to Noli to have lunch at Palazzo... More

I've been reading some of the other reviews and frankly I can never understand how some travelers insist on people to speak English. The staff of this restaurant is courteous and polite and can easily communicate with every guest. This is a no-frills, no "cheap-tourist-decoration" place. It was packed with locals and we were lucky to walk-in and find a... More

We went to Nacionale for dinner last night and had one of the greatest meals ever. We started with grilled calamare (very, very good) and as main course fish baked with potatoes and olives. It was amazing! The dessert was also very nice and the vine too. But beside the very good and well tasting food we loved the calm... More

A very simple restaurant. The service is easy and good. No English speaking but a French can be a little bit useful. No English menu. The spaghetti with mussels and clams are good. I think the spaghetti are home made. The seafood risotto is particularly good, but have to wait for 18 minutes. The deep fried seafood is not so... More

We had 2 or 3 courses...including some fantastic homemade pasta with the Ligurian pesto, green beans, potatoes (the standard). And we learned from our Italian hosts the rich history of this restaurant and its enduring quality. Lovely!

Very authentic! Apparently the same family has run this restaurant for the last 40 years, and clearly they know what they are doing. We were treated to an enormous dinner by our Italian family friends. It was an amazing gastronomic experience. It was priced on the high end, but the service was excellent. I don't think you will be disappointed... More

Stopped here for lunch on our way from Savona to Monte Carlo. Had the pasta with clams - delicious. My husband had the seafood risotto - also very good. Everything was very fresh. The setting is not perfect as there is a gas station between the restaurant and the water, but otherwise a good experience and good choice if in... More
