Over the years, we have tried most every restaurant in Alassio. Now that we have been here twice, Papei da Turta will be on our regular list. In a town that necessarily caters to a lot of tourists, it is good to know a place that has more of a local flavor. The welcome is warm and sincere, the food is very good and the atmosphere simple and relaxing.
It is artichoke season, and their fried artichokes are excellent. From steak to fish, pasta and desserts you will eat well and at very fair prices. The customers are as likely to be having beer as wine, and both tastes are well served.
Alassio is our favorite town in all of Liguria. We now have one more reason to appreciate it. How can you not like a place named after a poem in the Ligurian dialect by a local poet; one with tastefully selected art work on the walls and a hard working family/crew that makes you fell right at home. As with our legendary Boston bar, this is a place where (eventually) everyone knows your name.
