“A restaurant for budget eating”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2014

We like this restaurant because it reminds one of times gone by. It is very basic - the interior is nearer grim than basic and none too elegant, the food is basic Genovese cooking and the service we have had has always been polite if not exactly attentive. A resort on the Italian Riviera can be expensive so here is a place where you can get decent meals for reasonable prices. However, it is rather as reminder of what life was like many years ago that we return every time we are in Chiavari.

“Our favorite for lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2013

If you feel like trying truly ligurian food made by century old recipes, this is the place. You'll probably have to wait in line and you have to be openminded tastewise. We particularily love the fresh anchovies marinated in lemon juice, the cima alla genovese (stuffed veal breast), the bacchala fritta... we'll we've been here a lot, so we could basically go on. The place is very busy andold rustique, some may even say primitive. But you get a lot for your money in terms of new taste experiences. Love it!

“Old style trattoria”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 May 2013

If you want to try authentic Ligurian food at reasonable prices and in a homely Italian atmosphere, then try this trattoria. All the typical dishes are on the menu such as pasta al pesto, farinata (their speciality), fried salt cod (baccalà) and marinated anchovies. We had to wait for a table (along with a few others) but the service was fast and we didn't wait long. this was recommended to us by the receptionist at our hotel (Santa Maria) and we were not disappointed.
