I am sorry to report that the very bad reputation that this owner has got the last years, was to night experienced as very true. Never before have we got as bad service as to night.

Thank Björn G

Nice restaurant situated near sea front. Food is verry fresh , with nice choice on menu. Well prepared.

Liguria is not the place to be for good food and welcoming hosts: their culture, good luck.

This place is the clichè. They screw up with reservations promising the patio and getting us a table inside on a sunny day (not even trying to accomodate).
The manager barely says hello, gets dishes out not in synchrony leaving two of us watching the other two.
Food is poor, you can cook this basic fish dishes when you are single at 18.
Expensive check.
No smiles in front of our money.

Keep out.

I have a summer house in Chiavari and Vecchio Borgo (translation in inglese is Old Village) is my best favourite place for seafood.
Great raw fish for starters (sashimi style) in huge quantity, including fresh local raw scampi.
Even if I am italian, pasta with seafood is not my favourite so usually after a good antipasto my choice for the main course at Vecchio Borgo is Orata or Branzino (gilthead or seabass) alla ligure (baked with potatoes and olive oil) but my best choice is Frittura mista (daily catch in a light fried cover) with zucchine (also fried).
The location is lovely, especially outside in the square where you are in front of the sea looking at Portofino.
Strongly recommandable to book and at dinner you have first shift starting from 7,30 and second shift after 9.30 (much more common for italians and locals)
