“Fabulous”
Reviewed 5 June 2013

Two large rooms and a fairly spacious outside area on the seafront filled with happy customers are already a good business card. The warm, though not intrusive, welcome is another plus. The open-view kitchen showing busy chefs and hands is an amusing feature, the service is impeccable, but best of all is the Mediterranean cuisine, truly fresh and genuine, and the carefully presented and copious portions. We tasted one of the best whites in our experience, from the Sannio region. The mixed fried seafood was excellent, as were the inkfish risotto with mussels and the raw tartare with artichoke and parmesan slivers. The tiramisu was light and fluffy and the thinly sliced pineapple perfectly ripe.
The tasty focaccia and bread were presented in a soft basket and the wine cooler was an original rigid shopper filled with icy water, to keep the wine at the perfect temperature.
The bill was not over the top, to make this a favourite venue.

“Perfect for a lunch.”
Reviewed 28 May 2013

Perfect for a lunch in door or aut door, direct at the sea. Frendly staff and great sea food, fair price and very clean all together.

“A jewel of a restaurant”
Reviewed 26 March 2013

Been here a couple of times treating ourselves before/after our children arrive/return to UK, the restaurant is beautiful outside in summer and inside in winter. The food (mainly fish) is freshly cooked and its ingredients described by the waiters. It's modern cooking and it tastes really good. The food is not cheap but its no where near Michelin prices and I would recommend to anyone visiting the lovely city of Imperia..

“Really a nice surprise”
Reviewed 5 November 2012 via mobile

Sometimes traffic jams are just providing opportunities. And this is what happen to us on Sunday, November the 4th.
Being stuck in a cue due to roadworks between Arma di Taggia and Imperia East, we decided to leave the highway and to find a place where we could have lunch. Thanks to Tripadvisor we got to know Nero di Seppia. The place is right in front of the sea in Borgo Foce. The style of the furniture is minimal but this is the only thing you can call this way. Food, well introduced from the owner, was just great. Big mention for the fried anchoives but how to forget talking about the mixed fried fish and vegetables... Service was very warm and accurate (small thing but parents know how important it is: the children orders immediately communicated to the kitchen to make sure they get served quickly).
4 adults and 4 children, a couple of starters to share and then a main course for each of use, some good wine for slightly more then 15 euros per person. Sure it was very good value for money.
This place is gonna become a regular stop on our way to France...
