I have been there with some friends of mine and I was truly upset for the lack of service and quality. The table set up is ridiculous: paper mat and old cutlery. The service is fast but not professional : they used the backside table to serve other tables.The quality of food is less than average and I would say it could be perfectly defined as a tourist trap considering the cost: no value for money.

Ok, lets start, outside 40 degrees, the owner decide to turn off the air conditioning because (his words) :” it cost too much”!
Very funny, most people inside was more than 70 yo!
When we was saying “please turn on the AR ,we are dying!” The brown hair waiter said” we can’t, we get sick...”
Ehi sorry what?!? Who pay the bill me or you?
Very very funny.She continued to be rude till the end of the lunch. In America she wouldn’t have finished the work shift before she was fired.

The food was good and the blond hair waiter was really kind but I will never get in again!

The best location in town! The food is excellent, fresh and creative. The service is attentive and gracious. By all means, don't leave without the lemon sorbet.

This restaurant is in a newly pedestrianised square at the end of the seafront. The location is good but we were very disappointed by the food, which was both boring and not well cooked (one dish seemed to have come straight from the freezer and been inadequately warmed up). Service was surly, as if we were putting the staff out by being a customer. Much better restaurants elsewhere in Chiavari.
