I'm sorry but NataliaS shouldn't be traveling to places outside of main tourist traps if she can't travel unless dealing only in English. Finale Ligure is an Italian vacation spot not an international tourist destination and I hope it stays that way. Ai Torchi was a beautiful restaurant with a short, regional menu. We don't speak Italian but learned enough before we left home to make our way slightly around an Italian menu. If we end up with something we didn't expect or haven't had before - so much the better. The atmosphere, food and service were wonderful and probably the best dinner so far on our trip from Milano, Torino, Asti before reaching Finale Ligure.

The restaurant is very beautiful. One huge disadvantage. VERY BIG MINUS. NO menu in English. Nobody speaks English. Terrible discomfort for tourists! Tiny Menu. Is it impossible to translate into English? I think the owner of the restaurant should pay attention to it.
We were four. We have tried unsuccessfully to understand what to order for fifteen minutes. Then we went to Bastian Contrario where was English-speaking girl!

Gentile Signora,
è vero "no menu in English", come mai Lei non parla Italiano?.
Distinti saluti.

Excellent local food at very reasonable prices. Pity the tables outside are quite small. Great attention is given to details.
