“The place to go for excellent seafood”
Reviewed 14 July 2013

San Remo is known for its abundant and fresh seafood, and Pignese is an excellent restaurant to enjoy the bounty that the Mediterranean offers in its variety of seafood. Located near the water the restaurant with its al fresco dining provides an ideal setting for fine dining. For fresh fish it is hard to beat. There is not much to dislike about this fine eatery!

“The best restaurant of our North Italy trip!”
Reviewed 25 June 2013

The manager was glad to tell us the story of the restaurant which started about 100 years ago. The seafood meals (especially Bouillabaisse) was incredibly delicious. It's great to come the first time to a place and to feel like everyone there is your friend there.

“Dreadful!”
Reviewed 18 June 2013 via mobile

This was a waste of my girlfriend and my time. Waiters were rude, and barely took any notice of us, it was hard to get any service and once our meals arrived they were disappointing.

“Waste Of Time”
Reviewed 10 January 2013

dinner with family on week night.
don't waste your time with this substandard restaurant, many better places available.
it was recommended by our hotel driver, i should have checked tripadvisor first!
first course was ok, but second course a disaster, hair in the food, served cold, tasteless.
seems the microwave was not working well. waiter had an attitude,service break down at the end.
they are ranked too high at number 48.
noticed the owners seem to hover in the dining area and are surprised when food is rejected.
they need to spend their time in the kitchen making sure the food is prepared correctly.
never again.
