“Spectacular fish”
Reviewed 31 May 2013

This was slightly more upmarket than the other places we visited in Sanremo, but it was very close to our hotel and we fancied splashing out. I'm so glad we did as the fish was truly remarkable.

We had the Turbot and the Monkfish. The Turbot dish comprised of four large fish steaks in a light sauce on a bed of roast potatoes and sauteed courgettes. The fish was fresh and cooked to perfection. The Monkfish came out in a large boat dish, completely submerged in a tasty tomato, olive and caper sauce, with tonnes of shellfish on top. Again, the Monkfish was cooked perfectly. It was firm yet it fell off the bone.

Some of the reviews on here are mixed. I would highly recommend going here for the fish alone.

“Uneven, some dishes excellent”
Reviewed 26 April 2013

This restaurant was excellent value. However, the dishes were somewhat uneven. My husband had marinated salmon to start with, which was excellent and a very generous portion. I had the buffalo mozzarella which was superb, unlike the accompanying salad which comprised undressed lettuce and tasteless tomatoes. My main course of mixed grilled fish was superb whilst my husband's pizza was rather doughy and uninteresting.The service was friendly & helpful A good restaurant if you choose carefully.

“Great seafood”
Reviewed 21 March 2013

I measure Italian cuisine by four different courses: 1) Caprese, 2) Spaghetti alla vongole 3) Calamari fritta (fried calamari og mixed seafood) and 4) Margherita pizza.

At this restaurant I went for caprese and freid calamaris. Caprese was below average, what´s with the salad laying under the tomato and the buffala? Sorry, you´d better fix that dish, especially since you charge 11 euro (said 9 in the menu).

But, attention: The fried calamari (with french fries) was absolutely excellent. Salty, crunchy. Perfect! And good value (17 euro)

Strange that they didn´t have red table wine, only white. Never experienced that before in Italy...

“Dine overlooking the sea”
Reviewed 21 September 2012

Excellent food and a terrace overlooking the sea. Was closed on Tuesday evening (perhaps during the day, too; that we didn't check).
