Yesterday we had dinner in this nice place. It is a real place, a traditional nice italian place. The food is good well cooked with seasonal products. We enjoy each and every dishes and the house wine is good. The place during winter time is a little bit too noisy as it is not possible to sit in the terrace. Have a meal at A Ca do Leo (which means at Leo's place) is you are looking for genuine food with no frills

The path to the restaurant could be better marked but once you´re there you are rewarded with quite a marvelous view over La Spezia. We were a very large group of about 35 people and the restaurant itself was closed to accommodate our event. The setting is rather rustic - not posh, not exactly elegant. The servers are very friendly and work quite efficiently. The quality of the food is very good and the proportions are generous. If we were to come back with a very large group of people or had to plan an event in La Spezia, we would consider coming here again, but with one caveat: In spite of checking with them in advance about paying with credit card, the night of our event their credit card machine was mysteriously not working. We wondered, is this real or are they trying to avoid credit card fees? Whatever the situation, it required a separate trip to the bank machine in town (!). This should have been an avoidable situation - it was a bit of a hassle for us to deal with a cash payment for 35 people after a long evening of eating and drinking.

We we traveled for ten days all over Italy, this was our first meal of our trip and the BEST meal of our trip. 10 courses of a fixed and FRESH menu that lasted over 3 hours with the best white wine! Alex was an excellent server and gave us an elaborate description in english of each dish. He was nice, personable and funny, which was not common throughout italy. We actually tried to eat here again the next night but couldn't get in because it was full, so be sure to make reservations in advance. Price very reasonable and would definitely eat there again.

We liked this so much we went 2 nights in a row. Our hotel suggested this so we made reservations. The food was all local at least 10 courses, wine, water and coffee for 120 euro and there were 4 of us. WOW. A must visit, very friendly and told us everything we were eating in English. You can not beat the view.

We had one of our best meals in our two weeks trip in Italy. The view was amazing. We had a 10 course meal with a bottle of red wine , two big glasses of white wine, sparkling water and tea for 65 Euro for two of us. It was extremely good value for money. Everything tasted fresh and perfect. The portion was extremely generous. Some of the dishes were quite sophisticated as well. It was truly impressive and should not be missed!!!!!
