“Best Pasta ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 June 2014

We stasyed in La Spezia in May, 2014. This restaurant was right across from our hotel, the Firenze. We had dinner threre two nights after visiting the Cinque Terre. The waitress Daria, was so kind and welcoming. I ordered the pasta carbonara and it was the best pasta i ever had. i actually had it two nights in a row. The place is not fancy but we were treated like family, and the food was wonderful!

“Great Place to Dine!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2014 via mobile

Really good ravioli! The waitress (possibly owner) was super kind and ensured that we were taken care of. It was almost as if we were in her house as family. I highly recommend.

“A real surprise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 January 2014

As some of the "happy fews" we worked on New Year's Eve and we decided to celebrate 2014 going out for dinner on the 1st! Most of the restaurants were closed. We looked up in TA and find out this restaurant. You do not have to be influenced by the look of the restaurant: a little bit too old style, do not even look at the menu, it is a waist of time. Go straight, as we did in the hands of the nice and old fashioned waitress she will take your hand and lead you in a wonderful place where you can have the best home made ravioli I have ever teats in my life. Excellent fried lamb, good home made dessert. Good value for money! Better start we could't expect!

“Home made excellence”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 December 2013

We were fortunate enough to come across this homely Ristorante as it was opposite our hotel. Daria our waitress was exceptional. Her warm manner towards our children was much appreciated. The food was delicious and all Daria's recommendations were terrific. The decor is simple, yet the food was a standout! We visited every night. A must to visit if you are travelling to La Spezia.
