Description: San Giovanni restaurant is set on Casarza Ligure's hills. The cuisine belongs to the marine tradition as it offers fish and shellfish directly caught.Giuseppina Novara, who leads her kitchen with a teen spirit, was able to preserve the traditional courses of the restaurant improving in the meantime their ingredients and their quality.The "oeuvre" are simple but careful; the secret of restaurant lies not in the elaboration but in the quality and in the freshness of the products.

We went last time to San Giovanni in August 2012, although it's a place we know since many years. And it always maintained a very very high level of constant and satisfying quality. The refinement of 'ravioli' filled with fish or seafood, spaghetti, risotto is amzing. Plus the choice of fish (but also meat) cooked in a pure local way is a pleasure for the palate. The service is perfect, you feel really spoiled and the people are always ready to explain and give recommendations on the freshest choices. Last but not least the prices are fair to what you receive, taking into consideration that superior fish and seafood cannot be something cheap, but value vs price is fair.

Fish, fish, fish. Do not look to the price, look to the quality. Sure you'll remain happy and satisfied also after the bill.
