“Exellent service, food and view. What more can you ask for?”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 December 2013

Had an exellent dinner here. Staff was very helpfull and helped us bring our stroller through the whole restaurant and outside on the terrace wher they located us in one of the best spots and moved the table next to us so we could have the stroller next to the table. The food was deliciuos seafood based on local traditions with ingredients from local sources. The only foodie spot on the Ligurian Coast, with a great wine cellar to go. This was not our last meal here...

“Fantastic meal, Great price, Breathtaking setting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 October 2013

We never expected to find one of the best restaurants we have experienced in Europe in a 2000 year-old non-touristy medieval village. So many thanks to our wonderful B&B hostess for steering us here and reserving us a table "on the terrazza".

When we walked in, we found a very elegant restaurant with a bar and several rooms. However when we were shown to our table with THE killer view of the ocean, valley and mountains we were very very surprised and happy.

The meal was wonderful - the pasta, fish and desserts were elegant and perfect. The service was very good without being annoying. As soon as we were seated, we were each given a glass of very good champagne to sip while we perused the menu.

They served us little tidbits between each course that were as good as the main items. The bocconcini were to die for, crisp and hot and salty, and the shot glass of grapefruit gelato before the dessert was just the right touch. I just can't imagine anyone being disappointed there.

While we were tempted to go back again the next night, we went instead to their osteria below for a late lunch, where many of the same dishes are served with a huge selection of wines.

Cervo and San Georgio are on our list permanently.

“One Michelin star, but very disappointing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 September 2013

Nicely located in the old centre of Cervo. Looks very and because of the michelin star we had high expectations but were really disappointed. The service was sort of OK, but mainly due to the hard work of a single person but the food was disappointing. As an antipasti I had scallops in a nice sauce with very beautifully crispy fried zucchini flowers. I nice dish but not really exceptional. My wive had lobster salad and this was really the first disappointment. The ingredients were just put on the plate without any work on it , a couple of pieces of chubby lobster, some pieces of tomato cucumber onions and some other greens. Again just put next to each other without any preparation. As primary dish gnocchi with shrimp which was good but not exceptional and as secondary my wive again was disappointed by a shrimp dish on a tomato salad that tested next to nothing. I know that Italian food cares mostly about the quality of the products and good tastes and not so much about the complexity of the cooking. But for a Michelin star restaurant this was really too simple. Will never go here again.

“Fantastic meal at a great price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 July 2013

We visited Cervo late June 2013. Wonderful, historical village. During our stay we ate twice at San Giorgio. It was one of the best meals we ate during the five weeks we toured Italy and France.
The first night we chose the daily special of gnocchi followed by octopus on potato mash.
Best gnocchi I've ever tasted, melted in your mouth and the octopus was divine, not chewy like some can be. The wine options were good. We ate outside in the terrazzo and with the weather being fantastic, we had a wonderful experience.
We went back the next night and ordered the same dishes and wine. Superb.

“Never a disappointment”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2013

My wife and I spent the third time our holiday in Tovetto and visited San Giorgio during eachv yearly visit. This year's menu degustatione on July 21st was a perfect experience together with the recommended local wine. Not too heavy - which you enjoy with temperatures of 35°C outside- it was served with attention and customer dedication mirroring the earlier experiences. A clear recommendation for a exordinary evening.
